Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Lucky 13
I did have a grill out today, but it was at a Forest Preserve where no alcohol is allowed, and besides I was with my family. I got to use the portable grill they got me for Father’s Day to char some hot dogs and make s’mores. Everybody happy, and I am popping another beer... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas CitruSinensis Pale Ale
What better way to defiantly ward off the last chilly weekend of winter than to fire up the grill, burn off last fall’s salmon plank and grill some burgers while enjoying a beer outside? Before the next cold front rolls in. Our first beer of grilling season, supplied to me by the brewer’s rep (disclosure),... Read more »

Just a quick pull from events I already had on my Chicago Craft Beer calendar. Got back from my niece’s wedding in the Des Moines area. I can report that the golf club where they held the wedding did not have any Iowa beers, but could set me up with a pint can of Two-Hearted... Read more »
