something something i like the new (insert haze thing) reminds me of (insert haze thing) but i didn't like the (insert haze thing) because I picked up too much (insert beer adjective - malty, yeasty, bitter, etc). but the prices of the (insert haze thing) are getting to (high/low) compared to the other (insert haze thing).

There really is some sort of Deep Woods release on 7/19, according to the Original Other Site.
 
I was in the Loop for the first time in a long time last week for a conference. Had some time to kill before my train so I figured I'd check out Adams Street Brewery in the Berghoff. A pretty robust selection of beers. I tried a couple of flights. First one was all lagers. Vienna and Adams Street Lager both had hints of diacetyl. The dunkel and pils were solid though. 2nd flight was random beers that sounded interesting. The gose, hefe, and saison were good. IPA was a brewpub starter kit IPA, not good. Overall, I'd say a solid spot for when you're in the Loop, and want to drink something besides IPA.

These are all brewed in Wisconsin and do not represent Friendly Illinois Brewers. But you probably knew that. Way to @ me for lunch. I work on the next block (fuck, like I had time to meet anyone - this week sucked).

The food at the Berghoff is still pretty solid.

Hadn't heard that the beers are from Wisconsin. Based on what I've read, beers are brewed on site.

Actually, I know precisely when they did this. The last time I was in there (late last summer) they were doing some kind of plumbing work and had the front bathrooms closed because they opened the drain and exposed the sewer and the whole bar smelled like sewer. We were there with clients killing time between a Cubs game and our dinner reservation. It was spectacular.
