The brewery, founded in Pataluma, Califorrnia,... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Super Bowl Weekend Events

Chicago Craft Beer Super Bowl Weekend Events
So, remember “Bud Bowl?” The early CGI commercials where bottles of Budweiser mixed it up during the Super Bowl. I see this year, their commercials won’t even show the beer, just horses and puppies. But I have a couple of better matchups for you below: Friday, January 31 Bell’s and the Blues Blues Bar BBQ... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 30-June 2

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 30-June 2

Update: I finally found the source of the cool Blackhawk logo above. It's a group of college students in Cleveland who are "recycling" beer packaging under the name Beer Boxing Designs. That link also includes an Etsy page with some of their work for sale!

And I totally neglected to add a listing for Saturday's Grayslake Craft Beer Festival. So catch up to the information in a new article here.


Got a ton of stuff to catch up to here. Some places I've seen, some beers I've drank, etc. But let's get into the swing by telling you about a few highlights, like beer tastings, dinners, and the big festival for this weekend:

Chicago Beer and Valentine's Events for Feb. 14

Chicago Beer and Valentine's Events for Feb. 14
It occurs to me that Valentine's Day this year falls during Lent. At least it's not right on Ash Wednesday like it will be in 2018. But if you want to be particularly observant (or cheap), you can claim to your date you want to do as the Monks did during Lent: abstaining from everything but beer!

Monday, Jan. 21 5:00 - 8:00 pm ♦ Hopslam Tapping World of Beer, 1727 Freedom Dr, Naperville, IL (630) 955-0399 Join us as we tap this years vintage of fresh Hopslam! Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell's Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell's repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style...
