Congratulations to all the medal winners at this year’s Festival of Barrel-Aged Beer, held annually by the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild. A little snow tried to dampen our resolve, but as you know, Chicago takes it’s beer drinking too seriously for that. Hope you all had a great time and made it to and from the festival safely. Cheers!
