I picked up the online edition of the Chicago Tribune yesterday and read some sad, sad news. InBev (nee Anheiser Busch) purchased Chicago's Goose Island article here. In the original article it states Dogfish Head (obc2 approved brewer) is cutting back distribution to maintain integrity which is good, good news.
MillerCoors outsells InBev products in Chicago? Color me shocked and awed...
The Holy Grail opened at The Banks across from GABP on St Patrick's Day. Despite Mo Egger's thumbs up recommendation via Twitter I'm still voting thumbs down on the place. Taps at the table are turrrrrible, usually set to cut off dispensing after 36 ounces most places I've seen. Plus, look at the owners/clientele who were judged most photo worthy from their grand opening pics and article here
tHan and I tried the Blue Moon Seasonal Spring ale this weekend on Prime Rib Saturday Night...not good. we did not order a second glass of the beverage. Best beer of the weekend was Rivertown Brewery's Bockfest. Deeeeeelicious.
Samuel Adams has been up and down for me lately. But if I come across this six pack i will most certainly purchase it. Homebrew winners
