Chicago Craft Beer Events, August 6 - 9

There's a new dust-up in the regional beer scene. Toppling Goliath, the fan-favorite brewery in Decorah, IA, has sued its former head brewer, Chris Flenker. Flenker had worked for TG until January 2017, under terms of a noncompete contract that said he couldn't work for another brewery within 150 miles of Decorah for two years. But Flenker has been named head brewer of Thew Brewing Co., a startup brewer in nearby Cedar Rapids. The story appears in the Cedar Rapids Gazette. Meantime, people commenting on the case have been finding themselves blocked from TG's Twitter feeds and other social media.

Meantime, we have these events, leading to the weekend with Great taste of the Midwest, and the Lagunitas Beer Circus.
