We're all fans of beer here, especially local, Illinois brewed craft beer. We drink it at beer bars and breweries around town, pick up the newest releases at our neighborhood bottle shop, and attend the seemingly endless stream of festivals throughout the year. Breweries make beer, distributors get it to us, and we drink it. It's as simple as that right?

The Festival of Wood & Barrel Aged Beer (FoBAB) has become something of an institution in Chicago. The Illinois Craft Brewer's Guild's event draws enthusiasts from across the country and sells out in just minutes, despite adding a third session and a larger venue this year.
