I’m using the bully pulpit today to plug the upcoming Chicago Craft Beer Week.

This isn’t a legal topic – it’s a shameless statement of enthusiastic support for this amazing festival.

This is Chicago’s third annual craft beer week.  The theme is “Chicago: A City of Neighborhoods” – Chicago’s local craft beer is featured front and center throughout the 11 days in this week (May 17-27) at different venues in Chicago’s neighborhoods and the surrounding suburbs.  The event coincides with the American Craft Beer Week which is taking place across the U.S.

There are hundreds of events occurring around the Chicago and the suburbs all involving craft beer and leaving you with no excuse for not making it out to at least one of them.  This schedule is intense and it keeps getting updated as new events are added.

This is a tremendous opportunity to drink some great beers and support your local breweries.  It’s also the perfect chance to meet the ladies and gentlemen that actually brew the beer you drink.

Please check out the website, grab a lanyard at your neighborhood’s bar and get out there and have fun.
