FOBAB 2015 Recap

UNIVERSITY VILLAGE, CHICAGO

The sleet and snow couldn't stop thousands of devout beer drinkers from checking out the almost limitless selection of wood- and barrel-aged beers available at FOBAB 2015 – the highly acclaimed festival in its 13th year. Craft beer junkies are treated to a day of sampling some of the most unique and rare beers ranging from stouts to barleywines and sours. We recap our favorites, winners, and share some photos from the weekend.

The Hop Review's Best Moments of 2014

As we all do at this time of year, it's time to look back at 2014. If we do say so ourselves, it's been quite the year for The Hop Review. We've been lucky enough to sit down with no-less than 28 of the craft beer industry's most knowledgeable, passionate, and driven people. This is all on top of the many events we've attended and the countless other awesome folks we've come across; many of who we plan to chat with throughout the next year.
