The week following Chicago (and American) Craft Beer Week is usually reserved for rest. A chance for beers fans who may have overexerted themselves during the eleven days of events to relax, reintroduce themselves to their family members, and perhaps detox for a day or two.
The same thing can be said for the breweries, who seem to be using this week to lay low and focus on getting things done internally. With that said, this industry is never stagnant and there is plenty to talk about this week. Check out our latest Hoplinks and let us know what we missed!
