Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, October 8-10
The shortest brewery crawl in the western suburbs will be coming to an end. Two Fools Cider at 1665 Quincy Ave. Naperville, just across the parking lot from Solemn Oath, announced that they would be moving shortly.

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend: April 9-11

Finding out about another new spot for beer. Khaos Brewcade is not only a brewpub, but also a retro video and pinball arcade. Always pulling for new brewers. Though their location, 12337 S. Route 59, Plainfield, IL has previously been the site of Limestone Brewing, Nevin's and Midnight Pig. Fourth time lucky?

Chicago Valentine's Beer Weekend, February 12-14

Chicago Valentine's Beer Weekend, February 12-14
If weekdays have been a little sparse on events lately, perhaps it's because places have been "saving it" for the Super Bowl and now for Valentine's Weekend. As if that wasn't enough, the following Tuesday is Mardi Gras/Shrove/Tuesday/Pączki Day. There are some related events to watch for. There will be a few more Valentine's dinners added as we draw nearer to the weekend and COVID mitigations continue. We have not had a lot of events from Back Road Brewery in LaPorte, IN. They simply have not scheduled many, except when they were among the beers being poured at NWI festivals. But now they have closed down after 24 years in business. They had opened the same year as Flossmoor Station and Three Floyds. The ownership has not given a specific reason. (NWI.com)...

Chicago Brewseum Hosts Beer Culture Summit, Oct 24 - 27

Here's an announcement of an event near and dear to my heart: beer and the culture it supports (and I don't mean yeast). I'm posting the announcement pretty directly from the news release.

The Chicago Brewseum, a nonprofit museum project exploring the historical and cultural significance of beer, announces the Beer Culture Summit—an inaugural 4-day conference and event series organized in partnership with museums, cultural organizations and breweries. The event brings together experts and enthusiasts from Chicago and around the country to exchange ideas, discuss beer-focused projects and share industry wisdom with each other and the public. The conference is produced in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History...

Chicago Craft Beer Events, May 20-23
I've finally finished with Dark Lord Day and Illinois Craft Beer Week events. So I can take it a little easy this week. But I see my blog has gotten a bit more of an echo lately, judging from the spam get-rich-quick schemes I deleted from my comments queue. Yay...

Chicago Craft Beer Events, October 1-4
True beer fans know that the Germans moved Oktoberfest to September some time ago, to get through it before harvest time. But Oktoberfest stuff will still dribble in until it's time for "Halloween Spook-taculars" or something like that...
