Chicago Craft Beer Events, April 9-12
I went to a Cubs home opener many years ago, and the weather and cold and chilly, a lot like today. But I always say a day at the ballpark is never wasted.

I used to say, at the height of my beer snobbery, that I have better and cheaper beer at home than the ballpark. My beer may be cheaper, but I note that the White Sox have inked a multi-year deal to make Goose island their "official craft beer sponsor."

As I post this, my Opening Day-related events are sparse, but I'm adding to this calendar as I learned about new ones. And I seem to have missed most of the usual beer-related April Fools news this time around. Perhaps because April 1 fell on a Saturday, outside the usual news cycle.

Still no fooling, I’m catching up again after working on my taxes. What I need, obviously, is a way to turn this little hobby into a paying job. Have a I mentioned lately that I have a reward for whomever helps me land a full-time job with bennies? A case of 2002 Bigfoot. Don’t like... Read more »
