Chicago Craft Beer Week, February 24-27

Chicago Craft Beer Week, February 24-27
After enjoying Ciders throughout Chicago, we have a week of Mardi Gras and then… well, for many of us, it's Lent. But it's still okay to indulge. Beer was enough for the monks, after all. I am still having issues with my calendar server sometimes not showing up in these articles. I'm trying a few little alterations. If you can't see the schedule, please let me know....

We are lurching into March, a cold week, and Mardi Gras. Which for some reason, has given us a new category of Paczki beers. Not to mention Pulaski Day. And this coming Saturday, you can get some culture—yeast culture, that is—at the Field Museum with the Chicago Beer Fest. Tickets won't be sold at the door, so check this Eventbrite link...

Chicago Mardi Gras/Valentine's Beer Events, February 12-15
So what's going on this week in the beer world? Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras, Panckae Day and Pączki Day. For some of us, a last chance to indulge, or to pair beer with sugary pastries. Wednesday is Valentine's Day, so we have plenty of romantic beer dinners, or at least Valentine's specials at places known for good beer. Saturday is the Cider Summit at Navy Pier, so several cider makers are already in town for what they're calling Chicago Cider Week...

A Mardi Gras craft beer review: Lakefront Big Easy

A Mardi Gras craft beer review: Lakefront Big Easy
After getting out to my local bakery at 6:00 a.m. to get my reserved allotment of Pączki, I couldn’t help but consider that there seem to be few beers intended for enjoyment during Mardi Gras, Carnivale, Shrove Tuesday, auditioning for “Girls Gone Stupid,” whatever you call the last big party before 40 days of penitence....
