Chicago Craft Beer Events, August 14-17
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 »

Here it is October, and we still have some reasons to sit outside and Grill and some lighter summer type beers to just help keep that summer going. For instance, at least as of Tuesday evening, there is still some baseball being played by a Chicago team. So I’ve broken open a pack of hamburger... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Two Brothers A bretter DAY
Here I am again, writing about a beer that has been sent to me by the brewer’s people. So this is again my disclaimer that I’m describing a beer rather than pretending to review it objectively. So it’s Sunday afternoon and I’m trying to coax one last session out of the grill before I finally... Read more »
