Episode 167: Polar Beer Festival

Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder brave the Chicago winter and head to the roof of Rock Bottom Chicago to drink and dance at the 2nd Annual Polar Beer Festival. With over 30 beers on tap between the roof and in the downstairs warming room, it was was a great festival. It’s great to see so many craft beer fans coming out for a (mostly) outdoor winter beer festival. Brad and Ken had the chance to chat with Rock Bottom Chicago head brewer Chris Rafferty to find out why he chose to do a winter beer festival and what he has planned for the future. They also had a chance to talk with Bolingbrook Gordon Biersch brewer John Wyzkiewicz who had one of Brad and Ken’s favorite beers of the day. For this Fest only being in its second year and being outdoors in the winter, it was an amazing turn out. We definitely can’t wait for next years.
