It’s the end of the year and time to look back on the… wait a minute, it’s 2018! Between the holidays, getting sick, and drinking, drinking, drinking, this list is unfortunately coming out a little late.
Take a little trip with me. Come back to a time when people cared about year-end lists – approximately three and a half weeks ago, or perhaps never – and allow me to share my completely arbitrary rankings of beers released in 2017 that I enjoyed.
To commemorate our big 200, we ditched all of our high concept ideas to bring it back to the podcast’s origins by having a bottle share of random beers that interested us.
Whether it’s for a barbecue or a beach, choosing the right refreshing beer for your summer outing is more daunting than ever with so many choices. So, for your benefit, we drink eight Chicago-area beers that are built to pulled from ice and crushed.
