Chicago 2014
Beer, general / No Comments / February 10, 2014

Had a great trip to Chicago this weekend.  It was the 2014 Beer-cation with friends. First night started with a hipster German gastro-pub/uncommon beers place called Das Raddler. The food portions were small and expensive, but it was awesome. Then we went just down the street to Revolution Brew Pub, a nice place with some shockingly good people watching.

We stayed at the Renaissance Blackstone which was glorious:

The next day we hit Haymarket Brew Pub (thanks for the 4 oz beers!!),

It was a lot of samplers here and some good food.

The Lone Wolf  Bar (best place to Get 3 Floyds I’ve ever seen) then the Red Head Piano Bar,a happening party bar with odd amounts of security, it was a blast, but you can’t mind being packed in like sardines and drunk singing.

We also went to Goose Island Brew Pub Claybourn Location and got the tour and tasting for a shockingly reasonable price. That was a lot of fun. Also, hit Bubba Gump’s on the navy pier and I now have a very bright light up cup that my smoothie came in that actually projects a light version their logo on the table when you pick it up. Sadly pictures do it no justice. That with a little family time all in a Friday night to Sunday afternoon, not too shabby.

Now back to the podcast behind the scenes magic…


Hope you laughed as much this past weekend as I did,
