Chicago Craft Beer Big Game Weekend, February 3-5
I’ve been laid low this week by a kidney stone attack on Monday, which keeps me out of the mood for beer for awhile. Oddly, when I was sent for a CT scan of my pre-disposal beer tank, the technician recognized my name as The Beeronaut. Of course I was in too much pain at... Read more »

Chicago Weekend Craft Beer Highlights, November 16-18
I'm going to try and keep the calendar feature running again. This is thanks to an app I wrote to better format listings from my Google Calendar, which should cut down on my editing time. Besides, I need to offer alternatives for those of us without FoBAB tickets!

3:00 pm • 5730.06 Miles of Beer Local Option, 1102 W. Webster Ave., Chicago (773) 348-2008 Local Option hosts “5730.06 Miles of Beer.” Beer nerds from around the world will flock to 1102 W.
