Springfield will be having, by all rights, what appears to be a very tasty event this Sunday, January 11th. (Hat tip to KB)
Mrs. Glatz, writing for the Illinois Times, has a very nice article on the upcoming event. Diatribe and I are both familiar with her good works and fine sensibility of wonderful tastes. She knows of what she writes.
KB spilled the beans on the brews in the comments so I am going to reproduce it here:
Three Floyds Pride & Joy - A mild ale out of Munster, IN.
Erdinger Hefe - A wheat from Erding, Germany.
Two Brothers Heavy Handed - An india pale ale out of Warrenville, IL.
Fort Collins Chocolate Stout - Reverse engineer that name. It is from Colorado.
Kasteel Rouge - A cherry quadrupel from Castle Brewery in Van Honsebrouck, Belgium.
Walter Payton's Roundhouse Bourbon Barrel Stout - Another obvious name. Walter Payton's Roundhouse can be found in Aurora,IL.
That list makes me feel like Flying Pig* wanting to say 'Wow. What a line up.'
Sounds like a good time and having been to Charles & Limeys, I imagine the food will be quite nice as well. So call to make reservations for this excellent event because we will only have quality beer events if we support them.
