The Chicago Craft Beer Week kicked off at the Garfield Park Conservatory with the event, Beer Under Glass. Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski we able to check out the event and even managed to chat with a few of the local brewers about projects that are under way. All of you home brewers should recognize our first guest, Randy Mosher. Randy talks about the great news that 5 Rabbit has signed a deal on a brewery facility in southwest suburban Bedford Park, just a mile from Toyota Park. They hope to be up and brewing later this year if everything goes as planned. Speaking of new facilities, Ken and Brad were able to grab Josh Deth to talk about the opening of the Revolution Brewing production brewery. Revolution Brewing is going to make a big impact on the Chicago beer scene with its new facility. After a few more beers, Ken and Brad spoke with John Barley of Solemn Oath, the newest Chicagoland brewery to open it doors. They currently have four beers that you’ve probably seen popping up around Chicago. These guys are out in Naperville so all you beer lovers out there in the burbs now have another place to grab some great craft beer.
Beer Under Glass was the perfect way to kick off Chicago Craft Beer Week. Next year, if you see this event listed on the website, be sure to grab tickets. Its one of those events you don’t want to miss.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
