Chicago’s Week in Beer, May 9-12

Chicago’s Week in Beer, May 9-12

“First Weekend at the Cottage,” from the “Beer Belongs” series of ads by the U.S. Brewers Foundation, 1954

Not a lot to say in preface this week, as I’m gearing up for a string of listings for Illinois Craft Beer Week, starting this weekend. More later.

This week, the World Beer Cup medals were awarded at the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America, meeting in Minneapolis. Medals were award in 100 categories, in a competition sponsored by the Brewers Association,

Local winners included Mickey Finn’s Brewery of Libertyville, whose Moon Rocks took a Silver medal for Session India Pale Ale. Roaring Table of Lake Zurich took a silver for Beth in the Classic Saison competition.

In northwest Indiana, Shoreline Brewery of Michigan City, IN won a bronze in Scottish-Style Ale for Beltaine.
