Chicago Craft Beer Super Bowl Weekend

Chicago Craft Beer Super Bowl Weekend
I've got the schedule for the Super Bowl "Big Game" weekend up a week early, featuring brewpubs and tap rooms that are open late Sunday with TV, and other establishments that have been known to have good beer. Watch for this list to keep growing as more establishments post their plans. I apologize to those of you who may have seen error messages when trying to read the previous articles. The site that hosts my script to feed the events has been down for various reasons. I really need to look for better hosting, but I need to figure out out to pay for it...

Chicago Beer Events, December 11-14

Chicago Beer Events, December 11-14
It's time for "12 Beers of Christmas" promotions, and more strong dark beers for the holidays! And by the way, we here at the ChicagoNow community are saying goodbye to Jimmy Greenfield, our Community Manager, which means—well, I'd say "boss" but that implies that this is a job, which it's not. But Jimmy has been the coordinator between somewhere around 1,500 bloggers and whatever part of the Tribune Co. or "tronc" manages this blog portal. Jimmy was with "CN" since it fired up in 2009. I joined in 2010 after disappointing performance with another, long-extinct blog portal, and Jimmy has been handy with advice and ideas, some of which I did not bother with: he suggested my Beer Events pages should just be of selected highlights, I went and worked out how to program it to be dynamic. And he's also encouraged us all in learning our way around WordPress as it was becoming the de facto standard in blogging and site-building. Adios, Jimmy!...

Craft Beer Review: Warpigs Foggy Geezer IPA

Craft Beer Review: Warpigs Foggy Geezer IPA
I had stopped at Bavarian Lodge on Sunday in hopes of tracking down the Goose Island Keller Bier, available only on tap. But I missed the firkin they had just tapped the day before.
