Beer Glorious Beer

[not brunch]
Location: Union Station

Chicago Beer fest

NJB got together early this past Saturday and for once, it was not for brunch. But it was still in the name of day drinking!

We attended the Chicago Beer Festival at Union Station and let’s just say we are definitely going back next year. The place was packed with almost 100 breweries from all over the country offering their finest ales (winner: Greenbush Belgian… Where can we buy you???) The music was bumpin, the pretzel necklaces were crumblin, and the beer was flowin. Special shoutout to cute Lagunitas guy!

Upon entry we were given these [adorable] mini pints to use for sampling and, as far as we know, there was no limit on how many times you could refill. So in true NJB fashion, we got tipsy drunk. Then proceeded to take a nap and go out later that night. College life, you’re still in our blood! Never leave us!

We really recommend Chicago Beer Fest, the organizers have a few kinks to work out but for being such a new thing it went pretty smoothly. If you’re beer lovers like us, it’s definitely worth the $40 entry to get to sample so many different brews in one afternoon.
