Also I have a friend who got a Mr. Beer brew kit for Christmas. He did all the initial steps and mixed it all in the keg thing to let it ferment. They say let it sit for 1-2 weeks and its been like 4 months haha. Would it be okay to drink or has it gone bad by now?
Also, the Craft Brewers Conference and Beer Olympics came through Chicago last week. Wish I could have gotten to more events, but was very busy with random ****.
I did get to a tasting of beers from "The Bruery" out of Orange County at the Blackbird on Tuesday, though. They specialize in Saison's though I believe their most popular brew is the Orchard White, which is a Belgian style wit.
My favorite from their offerings was the Saison Rue - named after the founder, who was also there to answer questions. Very nice guy.
