Chicago Beer Festival: March 21, 2015The Chicago Beer Festival
Saturday, March 21, 2015
1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. at Union Station, Chicago
Sample dozens of domestic and international brews during the Chicago Beer Festival. Taste the spring seasonals, and find out which flavors are mingled to make uniquely crafted beers. In the fall, the pumpkin is king. By the cold winter months, peppermint and spices are supreme. By springtime, brewers concoct creative blends that are a little lighter, often a bit crisper. Train your palate to recognize all the secret ingredients, whether you get a hint of dandelion or a twist of orange.
If you're a beer lover, this is the Chicago event you won't want to miss. Tickets are not available at the door, but you can secure your slot at one of the two sessions on Saturday, March 21, 2015. Come out for the early shift of 1-4 p.m. to sip your way through a leisurely afternoon. Then you can grab a bite to eat at one of the many nearby restaurants. Come to Union Square for the 6-9 p.m. tastings, and you can plan an exciting evening on the town with your special someone. With the $40 admission cost, you'll gain access to some of the best beers you've never had.
An eye-catching name on the list of brewers, La Trappe, is a Belgium brewer that packs a powerful punch. The Trappist monks seem to have perfected the art of brewing, as evidenced by their intoxicating dubbels, trippels and quadruppels. Also in attendance, Founders Brewing, famous for their coffee-infused breakfast stout and Rogue, an inventive brand with daring flavor pairings like pretzel or peanut butter.
