Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 25-27

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 25-27
I am trying to get ahead of my usual glacial pace in events, because of more items that you might want to plan ahead for. Sure, I'll have Super Bowl listings for places known for their beer lists. But the Saturday before the game is the Chicago Ale Festival, taking place in Pilsen. Then the following weekend is the Chicago Cider Summit, and then there's Valentine's Day. We'll have some more brewers in Chicago celebrating anniversaries, and a new brewer, Steam Hollow, coming on line in Manteno. It can also be noted that Middle Brow Beer Co. is close to opening its own brewpub is Logan Square (2840 W. Armitage Ave.). The doors could open at any time, once local licenses are cleared. I will try to update this space, and there will surely be a grand opening later, hopefully when it's not so cold. (Chicago Tribune article) As you might notice, there are still samplings and tap takeovers for Bourbon County Stout. Looks like there's not only more of it out there than ever before, but I have been seeing it served at a lot of places that have not been known for good beer offerings...

Local Beer Review: 5 Rabbit Vida y Muerte

Local Beer Review: 5 Rabbit Vida y Muerte
The Labor Day weekend means the stores are now filled with… Christmas Decorations. No, that’s not it. Pumpkin Spice flavored junk food? Maybe. But it also brings us the fall beers like Oktoberfests. I’m hoping to get into some more of these malty Mårzens in the time to come. But now I bought something in... Read more »

5 Rabbit's Anti-Trump Beer Becomes Documentary Movie
There’s been a story in Chicago’s craft beer world. One that does not involve a brewery getting bought out by a multinational brewing corporation.

Up to 12 Beers of Christmas: 5 Rabbit Lupita & the 3 Kings
I discovered a new Christmas time beer just on the way home from work Friday. I stopped for some last minute food needs at Maraiano’s in Westchester, and of course peeked at what’s on tap at their little bar in the liquor department. They had up a 5 Rabbit handle with something written on at... Read more »

Another quick one this week that may have skipped a few. I may try to work in any missed items as I go along. The rush is because I spent the weekend retrieved my daughter from a week of spoilage at grandma’s house in Iowa. And I got to finally stock up of some sought-after... Read more »

I Drank 5 Rabbit's "Dump Trump" Beer, Chinga Tu Pelo

I did post articles about the story to my Facebook fan page, so you no doubt have already heard. As the Toupée That Walked Like a Man announced he... Read more »
