The 5th of April is rapidly approaching if you haven't had the chance to notice yet. This March has certainly been a blur for me, and I know that April is only going to be worst. Let me run down the calender of things coming up to fill you in on our plans.
March 31st - Timeout Chicago's Best of Awards. Maybe we will win best Chicago Brewery.
April 5th - Repeal of Prohibition party and debut of our Bottled Beer.
April 16th-20th Craft Brewer's Conference/World Beer Cup in San Diego, Ca. Matt and I will be out of town catching up on the latest in the world of brewing and sitting in on seminars to learn more about how to do our jobs. Hopefully we will be coming home with some awards.
April 23rd - We haven't quite announced it yet, but Fiddlehead Cafe in Lincoln Square will be doing a joint event with us at their place. We are trying to organize a train trip via Metra and CTA to their place from Flossmoor for those who would rather not drive. But there is talk of a whole roasted pig, and we will be bringing the beer. Like I said, more details to follow.
April 25th - Night Before Dark Lord Day - You're already making the trek to Munster, IN from whereversville U.S.A. Come to Flossmoor the night before. Special Beers, new merchandise, good times.
April 29th - Spring Brewmaster's Dinner. Again, more details to follow such as price etc. Seven Courses from Chef Eduardo paired with our beers. Tickets will probably go on sale next week
Every date in there that you don't see something specifically noted for will most likely be filled with us bottling. We have made a new IPA this week that I'm pretty sure will turn out really well. Pretty Big I.P.A. coming soon.....
