Midwest Beer Fest @ Cowboy Monkey

It could be argued that this event was somewhat mislabeled: asides from Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (St. Louis) and Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Mich.), every brewery present was from Illinois, and over half of them were either local or from Chicago. But who’s gonna thumb their noses at an opportunity to sample so much of what the state’s booming craft brewery scene has to offer — on a steamy summer day, no less?

Overall the event was very well-organized, and there were plenty of fruity and sour brews (my faves) to be had. I just wish they had provided a scorecard, or some other way to keep track of what you were drinking.
