Chicago Craft Beer Events, March 12-15

Chicago Craft Beer Events, March 12-15
Well, Daylight Savings just hit me harder than I thought it would. I thought I had gotten enough sleep Sunday morning, but all day long it was, like, "Who the hell moved the Sun!?" Ravinia Brewing Company's plans to build a brewpub in Highland Park have been delayed after the Ravinia Festival sent a request for them to pay a fee to license the "Ravinia" name. The story in the Chicago Tribune notes that the name "Ravinia" was first applied to a village annexed to Highland Park in 1988, and that other restaurants in the area have been using the "Ravinia" name with no issues. Meantime, it's a busy week: first "312 Day" for Goose island fans, "Pi Day" for math fans, and coming up to St. Patrick's Day. I'll get a weekend event listing posted shortly, for as many events that I can find that offer something beside Green Lite beer and "Car Bombs". And by the way: St. Patrick's" is okay, "St. Pat's" and "St. Paddy," too. But "Patty" is a girl's name...

Craft beer review: Two Brothers Resistance IPA

Craft beer review: Two Brothers Resistance IPA
Originally Published August 5, 2010 Before coming over to the light side at ChicagoNow, I was writing about beer for Examiner.com.

As you can see, we have a beer event or two tied in to next week's total solar eclipse. I am making my own plans to see the eclipse from Big Muddy Brewing in Murphysboro after camping out in DuQuoin. If you happen to be in that area too, I am still updating my list of events at beer spots in the path of totality...

Well, my Father’s Day went well enough. I got to sleep in for starters. The teenager, as is his won’t hung in his room while I took the little girl out to the water park (where dads got in free on Father’s Day). Now it’s evening, and while I’ll be calling my own dad later,... Read more »

Restaurant Preview: The Craftsman by Two Brothers

Restaurant Preview: The Craftsman by Two Brothers
Once again, I’m reminded that Naperville is different than other suburban downtown: its rush hour is at dinner time, and all through the weekend. The overflow of boutiques, day spas and restaurants, both chain and local, makes a sort of crucible for new concepts to sink or swim. For some reason I thought about this... Read more »
