Saturday I went to the evening session of the now-annual Beer Hoptacular at the Aragon Ballroom. I wasn’t sure what to expect from it, since I remembered being unimpressed with the beer selection at last year’s inaugural festival, but there were a dozen more breweries there this year—I especially appreciated the addition of more local and regional breweries, from ones I knew of but hadn’t had a chance to try yet (5 Rabbit, Wild Onion) to some that I’d never heard of before (Destihl, Emmett’s).
