Chicago Week in Beer, March 22-25

Imperial Oak Brewing just went and announced they've opened their second brewpub. The bar and taproom is now serving at 9526 Ogden Ave. in Brookfield, the former Brixie's bar.

As usual, this is just a taste of beer events coming this week, updated as of Saturday evening. Please check my full schedule, which gets added to constantly, at my web app.

Chicago New Year's Eve Week in Beer, December 28-31

Chicago New Year's Eve Week in Beer, December 28-31
No indoor events for New Year's Eve in Chicago. But many beer venues are offering meal plans for carryout, and I have one daytime outdoor celebration on "Noon Year," perhaps more. I will keep updating as more events become available. Provided the deadtime to register for them hasn't already passed...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 24-26

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 24-26
As has been widely covered earlier, the Chicago-based beer blog The Hops Review has closed down after 8 years of business coverage and general interest news. It had a fine run, but the principals have needed to go their separate ways. No doubt there was a lot of expense in keeping up a web site without the support of advertising or endorsements. I myself get a free space and supposedly some Google ad revenue from just ONE of the ads on the right rail. Before the site was flooded with ads advising us how to empty our bowels. And I'll be posting a schedule of places with Super Bowl watching parties, of course. Some may be places that have had craft beer events in the past, but that may not mention specific beers for February 2. Other may normally not be open into Sunday evening, but will have special hours for the game. If you'll be up for the game, be sure to drop me a line...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, November 15-17

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, November 15-17
Update: I had reported Sunday’s Bears football specials from the establishments hosting them, which seem to have all assumed the matchup against the Rams would be at noon. Instead, the Bears were kept on the “flex” schedule. Kickoff is at 7:20. Assume that any of the game-watching special mentioned below will be good for Sunday evening. Hey all! I've got more freelance work lined up, a crush of events all the way through various Black Friday releases, and now starting to see beer establishments' New Year's Eve parties. I'm punching them in as I get them, and each of my calendar articles will be updated as that happens. After a couple years on the planning boards, Englewood Brews has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help finance the building of their tap room. The woman- and minority-owned brewery has a mission of providing jobs and a community space in their facility, at 821 W. 63rd St. Watch for their crowdfunding campaign kickoff below...

The Week in Chicago Craft Beer, November 11-14

The Week in Chicago Craft Beer, November 11-14
I'm getting this out a little early so I might be able to make time to post winners from the Festival of Barrel Aged Beer on Saturday. And I thought I was going, but family obligations keep me at home. I am the Phantom Beer Blogger. This week we have preview pourings for Begyle Imperial Pajamas, more Revolution Deep Woods, Surly Darkness, and previous Bourbon County Stouts are being cleared to make room for this year's...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, February 22–24
I'm not getting very far with my plan to get St. Patrick's weekend events posted early on. But bear with me. There's beer involved...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, November 9-11

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, November 9-11
It’s another weekend with so much going on. We have a lead-in to next weekend’s Festival of Barrel-Aged Beers, previews for the Bourbon County Stout Black Wednesday/Friday release, and other wintry big beers. I’m finding some places offering specials to veterans for Veterans Day, either Sunday the 11th, or the Monday holiday following. I will... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, November 17–19
I've run a little behind getting this posted, partly because I keep finding more events to put in, and because I've been fighting a fever since last night. Luckily I have the listing for Black Wednesday and Black Friday already set up, and I am still adding events to those listings as well...
