Last Saturday, I attended the Illinois Craft Brewers Association’s Sixth Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers at the Chicago Journeyman Plumbers’ Local Union 130 Stephen M. Bailey Auditorium, and it was the Shit.
Featuring cask aged beers from Three Floyds, Rock Bottom, Surly, Gordon Biersch, and our friends at Piece, and Half Acre, the festival was a boozy, barley-fueled good time. And how were the beers? Well let’s just say the casks weren’t the only ones with wood. For more info, including the winners, check out the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild here.
