Shout out to @thehopreview guys for putting on a fantastic event for #icbw !
Today is my Friday. Starting my extended weekend the right way - With a good brew and a fresh cut. Ready to kick off Illinois #craftbeerweek tomorrow! 🍻 #fewbrews #icbw
Grab your best gals and join us next Tuesday for a Female Flight Club with our buds @btlsandcans and @begylebrewing 👯♀️ we’ll be sipping our way through the many styles of beer from local craft breweries in celebration of @ilcraftbeerweek 🍻 head to the link in our bio to sign up!
@forbiddenroot had the most sales growth of any other local brewery in Q1. Did you see who else was on our list? Link in bio 👆
Ending the work week with @18thstreetbrewery. Happy Friday!
Juice Pants is back and this weekend he’ll only be available at the Lounge! He and MEGA DRY, our Brut IPA @omegayeast_ collab have already bonded and created a lasting and possibly lifetime friendship. #whycantwebefriends
Wasn’t gonna have a beer today but @middlebrowbeer sent me this delicious Pils and I can’t say no to a Pils when I’m out in the backyard on a 70° and sunny Monday afternoon...
Our lineup for Lake Zurich Craft Beer Fest next Friday (5/11) is looking *almost* as nice as today’s weather in Chicago! From left to right we have False Acriminations (chocolate coconut porter), Juice Junkie Tests Positive for Being on the Juice: Tests 1 & 2 (NEIPA w/ Citra, El Dorado and Denali), and Jalapeño on Rye (Saison with jalapeños and lemongrass tea). The tasters shown are from the previous two years... wonder what this year’s glasses will look like 🤔
Hope to see some familiar faces there!
Got some tricks up our sleeves for Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day, but today, let’s just all enjoy us some days old Son of Juice. On tap and in cans at the Lounge. #friday
It’s the perfect day for patio sitting with a barrel aged upside down Black and Tan from @marzbrewing and @pipeworksbrewing in hand.
Emerald Grouper from Pipeworks. First Chicago beer this trip and damn it delivers 🍻
Slinked into Niles, Illinois’ @uneannee to #catchflightsnotfeelings , #tastetherainbow , and #drinkallthethings ...🐦🐦🐦|🗿 From left to right: Le Grand Monde 2018-1 with black currant and vanilla bean, Le Seul XXIV with plum, Framboise, Le Seul X with passion fruit, Le Grand Monde 2018-2 with strawberry and rose hips, Le Grand Monde 2017-11 with cabaret and merlot grapes, Le Grand Monde III with peach, cinnamon, and vanilla, and Le Seul XV with watermelon. Standouts? Each and every last one of them, although the Le Grand Monde III (peach, cinnamon, and vanilla) was an unexpected, decadent, and beautifully-mastered flavor profile. #wishyouwerebeer #cheerstobeers #craftnotcrap #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerporn #ilovebeer #bier #beerporn #beerflight #drinkcraft #beer #beergasm #beerlover #beerme #beergeek #beernerd #beersnob #craftbeerlover #uneannee #uneannebrewery #chicagobeer #chibeer #chicagocraftbeer #illinoisbeer #illinoiscraftbeer
We are only 3 weeks away from #Ultrafresh 3! Last two years have sold out, so grab those tix before they’re gone! Come drink the freshest beers #ICBW has to offer.
If you’ve seen my stories from yesterday, you’ve seen that it got off to a rocky start. I lost two bottles of @cyclebrewing weekday when my shipper tipped rounding the escalators at O’Hare, leaving a great lake of barrel-aged imperial stouts in its wake. I chipped fifty percent of my nails attempting to recover roughly thirty percent of salvageable contents. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as the nicest couple imaginable, in town from Boston, helped me break down and sop up as much of the mess as possible (I’ll never be able to express how that small act of kindness touched me). As I shuttled to the hotel, staring down at my stout-drenched forearms, I was ready to throw in the towel on the entire day... but boy, am I glad I didn’t. Because if there’s anything a 3L-bottle of @caseybrewing Balaton Cherry can’t fix, then blowing off steam with these guys will ...😌 Thank you for so much for sharing this bottle with us @ajmakadistro, and for the warmest of welcomes and phenomenal party, @mikerphonebrewing! This weekend is YOUR weekend. Today’s fest is going to be AMAZING. #wishyouwerebeer #drinkallthethings #cheers #cheerstobeers #craftnotcrap #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerporn #beerporn #drinkcraft #drinklocal #beer #beerlover #beerme #beergeek #beernerd #beersnob #craftbeerlover #ilovebeer #craftbeerfest #beerfest #chicagobeer #chibeer #illinoisber #mikerphone #mikerphonebrewing #smellslikebeanspirit #smellslikeabeerfest #caseybrewing
