Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, October 20-22
As of this writing, Thursday morning, we are only guaranteed a Game 5 tonight. If we get to see Games 6 & 7, necessary if the Cubs want to win the pennant, I hope to add more viewing at good beer places here...

Is it still playoff time? The Cubs have a do-or-die game on Thursday that will determine whether they get to take on the Dodgers starting Saturday. We'll be adding to this list with NLCS events as they're announced. Meantime, we have another brand new brewer with a grand opening on Saturday. Take a look below. And remember to enter the lottery for tickets to Goose Island's Proprietor's Day on November 19. Details at this article....

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, October 6–8
It's playoff time again! I have some Cubs-viewing beer events posted already, but keep checking back, as there will be more announced at the last minute. This is also the weekend of the Great American Beer Festival, running Thursday through Sunday in Denver. Well, I can't go, and neither can Goose Island or Lagunitas. So we'll hang around the neighborhood and have some beers. Since we're still running big Oktoberfest events, I have added an update to my first Beer Styles Cheat Sheet on Oktoberfest bier. This is a permanent page that will be updated as more beers are tasted...

We are winding down our Oktoberfest season ever so slowly, but there are still some Oktoberfest weekends to come. Meantime, I have put up a Beer Style "Cheat Sheet" page with some local Oktoberfest beers here. The first game of the National League Division Series between the Cubs and the Nationals is on Friday, October 6. I'll be posting any beer-centric watching events on my Google calendar linked above, to appear in my upcoming weekend events list...

While Oktoberfests are still going on, this week they're taking a bit of a break. But there will indeed be more fests, and local beer festivals in Chicago this weekend! And you don't need me to tell you, but as of this writing (early Sunday), the Cubs could clinch the division as soon as Thursday. And the Sox just might finish up out of the cellar...

Congratulations to Daniel Bell of Chicago, who won the drawing for a pair of tickets to Brooklyn Brewery's Beer Mansion this weekend! See details below, tickets are still available!

This may be my busiest Saturday for individual events, thanks to the many Oktoberfest celebrations going on. I've put in as many as I can that seem to have either local beer for some German imports, rather than just the usual "bucket of Buds." Have you entered my giveaway for tickets to Brooklyn Brewery's Beer Mansions, going on in this town next weekend? No? Then check this article...
