Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 6-8

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 6-8
From the Prohibition era, when brewers sold malt extract as a "tonic" for mothers.

This week we have Mother’s Day, of course. Some Kentucky Derby events and a few leftover Cinco de Mayo beer events. And next week we get Chicago Craft Beer Week, starting with Beer Under Glass. More details and I compile the many events going with this.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, we have another temporary COVID-related shutdown. Flapjack Brewing announced they had learned two of their employees tested positive over the previous weekend. They are performing the due diligence of closing down and sanitizing per CDC guidelines. They will announce a specific re-opening later.
