Two weeks ago we took a mini-road trip to Chicago for a wedding. So many people thought we were crazy for driving, but it was actually quite pleasant. We stopped in Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along the way.
The Midwest is a great place to go to try new beers. The region is teeming with great brews that never make it to New York City. Because we drove we had the opportunity to bring back beer in the car, and we sure loaded up.
For beer shopping we went to a Binny’s Beverage Depot in the South Loop area of Chicago. We were like kids in a candy store. So many beers! Only so much room to bring them back.
We settled on a mix of old favorites and ones we hadn’t tried. We came home with Bells Two Hearted and Kalamazoo Stout, New Belgium Fat Tire, Half Acre Daisy Cutter, Revolution Brewing Octoberfest (in cans) and Pipeworks Brewing End of Days.
Next road trip? Michigan or Wisconsin.
