Carryout and Virtual Chicago Beer Week, May 4-7
Saturday at 11:18 pm
It seemed we were starting to see a few events pick up over the weekend. But instead things are slowing to a few carryout beer releases and virtual get-togethers. These are still coming up last-minute, so please do check back here.
Hey, back in February, I did an article on Shiner’s S’Mores beer, which they had sent to me in a wooden presentation box, with gourmet
Tejas chocolate, a bag of marshmallows and graham cracker, a matchbook, and of course, beer. In fact, they accidentally sent me two of those boxes. I tried to give them away in a drawing. One was brought out to a happy reader, but we couldn’t get together on the other one before the lockdown. So he said forget about it. So we finally made S’More’s with the kit. Well, the marshmallows had gotten hard by this time, and the chocolate was too tasty to just smoosh into a S’More (but was well appreciated in itself). But the beer went well with it. And that paper packing excelsior made good tinder.
