Chicago Craft Beer Oktoberfest Weekend, September 14-16
So now that we're into weekend-long Oktoberfests, I still need to work out how to present events that take up two or three days. Have a full summary the first day and have the following days' listings refer back to it? Just show the event once and note that it runs over more than one day? Well, I'm working this out...

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.
