The Year In Beer is Clearly Bubbling

By

Our interest in beer being more practical than obsessive, we rely on a number of sites to keep us informed, high among them Guys Drinking Beer. GDB's Karl Klockars does a roundup of the year in beer in the Chicago environs, and the main thing we take away from it is... holy reinheitsgebot, Batman, there's a LOT of breweries starting up here. Begyle, Pipeworks, Dryhop, Atlas, One Trick Pony, Hopothesis, Brewery Vivant, 4 Paws, Off Color, not to mention that giant Lagunitas thing coming here and the prospect of a Three Floyds pub up here and, good grief, just go read it and salivate yourself.
