Hello brew crew!
Chicago Craft Beer Week is upon us, folks! If you are in the Chicagoland area, get ready to enjoy a bunch of beer-focused events running from tomorrow through May 25. These range in size from huge beer fests to neighborhood bar tap takeovers and feature breweries of all sizes and locations with a great local focus.
We hope you enjoyed a happy Fourth of July celebration! In this edition our story taps pour over the country’s best outdoor beer gardens, new additions at Lagunitas and the beer shortage that panicked the Pilgrims into settling a new country.
Chicago can thank its many beer gardens for its appeal as the best summertime city in the country.
Hey beer people!
We are going to start regularly updating what we think is useful beer information on our blog. Check out this week’s “What’s On Tap”:
