It’s that time of year when we roll out the barrels of barrel aged beer for our annual Couldn’t Get a Ticket to FoBaB Barrel Aged Beer event. This is the event that always takes place on the Thursday prior to FoBaB, the annual Festival of Barrel and Wood Aged Beer put on by the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild. Our event kicks-off on Thursday, November 9th, but will continue into the weekend and following weeks as supplies last- this year we will have 20+ barrels along with some rare vintage bottles. Do it the Chicago way, come early and come often!
