Welcome to the Chicago Beer Pass: Your ticket to all the great beer events happening in and around Chicago.
After a couple weeks off, Brad Chmielewski & Nik White are back with a new episode and there is a lot to talk about. With having so much to cover, we run a bit long on this episode but it’s all worth it. Plus, for the first time in the studio, we have a couple special guests. Heather Kundert and Sarah Mclain join Brad and Nik to chat about Chicago Festiv-Ale.
Before getting into all the awesomeness that is Festiv-Ale, there were some great events that are worth chatting about including a dinner at Blackbird where Nik got some juicy beer news. We also talk about The Midwest Brewers Fest and the opening of Headquarters Beercade in River North.
Sadly, Chicago Beer Pass will be gone again next week but Brad and Nik try to give you a list of some great events to check out. On August 28th is Delilah’s 21st anniversary party. Then on Friday, August 29th is Vice District Brewing Co. opening day. Next week on Wednesday, September 3rd are two good events, one is the Metropolitan Brewing Pop-up Taproom at SmallBar Division and then at Logan Arcade is the Arcade Brewery Launch Party!
To close out this great episode, Heather and Sarah give the low down on Chicago Festiv-Ale, what it is, where it’s at, and why you should be there. Be sure to grab your tickets, you know Brad and Nik will be there.
Whew! All that and more on this weeks episode of Chicago Beer Pass. Cheers
