Chicago Beer Festival 2013
The Annual Chicago Beer Festival returns to Union Station on Oct 19th, 2013. Following on from the roaring success of the spring edition held earlier in the year, many of the fan favorites are back for more, including Brooklyn Brewery, Duvel and the Kona Brewing Company.
Due to the popularity of the festival, organizers have made two separate sessions available to accommodate more visitors. The sessions run from 1pm – 4pm and 6pm – 9pm, no matter what session you attend there is fun to be had. Those pouring your tasters want to know your thoughts on their beer. You may have started brewing your own, they are happy to give you tips. Essentially any beer related talk is deemed worthy on the day. You can also be sure that the tasters will be of generous sizes.
