Chicago Craft Beer Events, March 6-9
Before we get into the two weekends that mark St. Patrick's Day in Chicago, we even have a craft beer event for Pulaski Day. That may be helpful as you ponder why your grade school kid gets the day off, but your high school kid doesn't. Or is that the other way around? And in the continuing brewers' merry-go-round, John J. Hall will become brewmaster at Metazoa Brewing Co. in Indianapolis. Hall made his mark brewing for Goose Island (no relation to GI founder John Hall), then ran brewing at 5 Rabbit before this appointment. Metazoa is known for its pet-friendly facility, and for donating portions of its proceeds to animal and wildlife organizations. (Indianapolis Star)...

It’s time again to run through some beer themed to an upcoming holiday. Too close to Mardi Gras to get around to that, but I should be able to get a nice round of Irish styles in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve got some to start with, sent to me by Louis Glunz Beer... Read more »

Craft Beer Review: 4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout on St. Patrick's Day
Since I am spending St. Patrick’s at home putting together this weekend’s event listing, I thought I’d open an appropriate beer.

Chicago St. Patrick's Weekend Beer Events
You bet it’s been hard to winnow down all the events going on this weekend and next Tuesday. I simply had to put my foot down and declare that you’ve got to have better than green beer or buckets of “Chi-Rish” Lite beer to get on this list. But I still may have slipped. Friday,... Read more »

Chicago St. Patrick's Weekend Craft Beer Events
Update: The site to buy your Dark Lord Day tickets is now up!
