If you think “cask beer” means “flat, warm, and funny tasting,” what you’ve had is some seriously fucked-up cask beer—and this is the festival to prove it to you.
When your nonprofit club runs a brew house that your members can use, your summer backyard barbecues are going to have a lot of good beer.
This week in Food & Drink: Ruby’s Restaurant and other soul food spots, two new “urban” taquerias, Key Ingredient fish eyeballs, underground dining society Tuesday Night Dinner, Fireston Walker Double Jack Double IPA, and more.
One of the latest west-coast breweries to enter the Chicago craft-beer market won the Golden Tut at the Night of the Living Ales with this imperial IPA.
Goose Island takes first and second place, Three Floyds wins the bronze, and Firestone Walker earns a special nod from the organizers.
