Chicago Craft Beer Week Highlights, Sunday May 19

It's kind of a marathon for me, keeping up with at least a few selected CCBW events, preferring local brews and hard-to-find tappings. Maybe I'll even get to one of these. I suppose we'll put these highlights first: a chance to party at a Cubs game with no Bud Light in sight...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, Feb. 15 - 17

Friday, Feb. 15

5:30 pm ♦ Firkin Friday Cask Tapping: Arcadia Imperial Stout The Bavarian Lodge, 1800 Ogden Ave, Lisle, IL (630) 241-4701 For this week's Firkin Friday feature, we're happy to present Arcadia Imperial Stout (8.4% abv). Black as coal in color, this cask conditioned Stout has a velvety rich and sweet malt aroma. A dense brown head gives way to a big, full-bodied and creamy texture that has flavors of roasted coffee and black currants, blending perfectly with the malt. A generous amount of hops add balance and complexity to this extraordinary stout (80 IBU). This stout is absolutely gorgeous in this special cask-conditioned format. The cask will be tapped at approximately 5:30 pm at the bar. Its delicious contents will be available to everyone in both the restaurant and pub until the firkin runs dry. First come, first served...

Chicago Craft Beer Events, February 4 - 7
Busy trying to get this out while the Super Bowl is still on. Lucky for me the blackout happened while I had to put the kids to bed!
Flash! Beerpulse has just checked into Three Floyds' website (how's that for attribution) and found that the date for Dark Lord Day is Saturday, April 27. They also have a post of the new label for this year's massive Russian Imperial Stout. No ticket sales have been announced, and once again, rumors are that the venue for the event may be moved. Time to start watching the Dark Lord Day website for breaking news.

Monday, February 4

Um, nothing on the sked. Super Bowl hangover, anyone? Of Mardi Gras plans for the next day...
