As the week starts, Chicago residents are once again busy putting pen to paper trying to create a schedule that will make their week worthwhile. Well, this can prove to be a challenging task especially in a city where there is so much to do yet very little time is available.
Last year this event elicited a lot of positive responses and praise from lovers of beer and critics alike. The organizers maintain that this year’s event won’t be any different as a matter of fact it is expected to surpass last year’s feat. This event provides a platform for residents of Chicago and the visitors to enjoy brewed beer and to test the different blends available from the microbreweries.
The beer festival also serves as a platform for future brewers and hobbyists to learn some secrets of the trade through live and personalized demonstrations. What this means is that the participants get to experience both sides of the craft beer industry, that is, the production and the consumption bit. However, a word of caution goes out to all participants to make sure they drink responsibly (as if that is even possible)
