Just saw this on their website. It is the same day as my stepson's 20th birthday, so it's iffy as to whether I can go or not. If there is any possible way to go, I'll be there!

A day long beer and music festival

Hop Juice Double IPA.


------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------

Click here for a map

When: June 6th, 12pm - 11pm.


------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------



Besides the chance to drink the 2009 Hop Juice on draft and have first crack at buying bottles of it to go (IF anything is left we will ship it to the stores the following week), there is plenty to do.



We have 4 bands lined up to play music all day long. We have signed them and I will be posting their names this week.



Chef Tommy and his staff will be cooking up some great food (including veggie options) all day.



Want to show the brewers they are just regular guys? Stop by the dunk tank, support a great charity, and dunk the brewers.



We are amassing a guest beer list that will blow all craft beer lovers minds. We have called on a number of our friends from all over the country to send us beers. These are beers that can't be found (maybe ever) in Chicago.

We have the first guest beer. It is:

Fedelta - Allagash Brewing Company, Portland ME.

Looks great! I may try to make it as long as I don't have too much to do around the house, spring projects galore....

Saw that they are securing a bunch of special guest beers that we can't normally get in Chicago as well. Awesome.

First two are confirmed:

Fedelta (collaboration brew with De Struise)- Allagash Brewing Company, Portland ME.

Voltron (blend of 5 barrel aged Brett beers)-Avery Brewing Company, Boulder CO.


Gonna be a good day!

Fedelta (collaboration brew with De Struise) - Allagash Brewing Company, Portland ME.
Voltron (blend of 5 barrel aged Brett beers) -Avery Brewing Company, Boulder CO.
Stone 07.07.07 Vertical Epic Ale aged in red wine barrels - Stone Brewing, Escondido, CA.
