Chicago Beer Society Brewpub Shootout 2011

This past Saturday, we attended the Lucky 13th edition of one of our favorite events:  The Chicago Beer Society’s Annual Brewpub Shootout.

It was a wonderful event as always, attended by 300 beer aficionados from all over the USA.  We had a blast with the people at our table, including a couple guys who were actually surprised that Lisa was there of her own volition– and the fact that she actually likes beer.  I guess they never heard our favorite sound bite where Lisa talks about how much she enjoys it. :)

Here are the winners of this year’s Shootout:

1. Haymarket Pub & Brewery
2. Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery
