Two years is equivalent to a decade in Chicago beer, and StoutFest returned from its last appearance in 2016 to a very different Goose Island Clybourn Brewhouse with a new crop fo breweries ready to take home the coveted StoutFest cup.
In the last six months, four hotly anticipated taprooms threw open their doors for thirsty Chicagoans, and we took a day to visit them. We brought back beers from each spot to review while sharing our early impressions of the new establishments.
Ryan and Craig recap their StoutFest 2016 experience by handing out the coveted Crotchees.
We’re in our terrible twos now (just now?!?!?), so we’re throwing a party to celebrate!
