Participants in this tour will meet at District Brew Yards. This brewery collective is home to three breweries-in-one: Burnt City Brewing Co., Around the Bend Beer Co., and Bold Dog Beer Co. , so, in essence, this is an opportunity for participants to taste the brews of three of Chicago's breweries under one roof. After a quick orientation and grabbing something to wet their whistle, participants will get a show-and-tell overview of brewing ingredients followed by an up close and personal tour of the brewhouse. Following this will be a deep dive into the topic of Beer styles; how they taste and how they are differentiated -all aided by educational materials. This presents the perfect segue into a guided tour of the beers on tap, including "The Fourth Wall" (a place for radical experimentation and collaboration). District Brew Yards features 40 “pour-your-own” taps and tour participants will receive personalized advice on which beers to sample. After allowing ample time for sampling and Q & A, the participants will be free socialize among themselves and maybe even grab some grub --mostly BBQ and smoked meats-- from the in-house menu.
Over the past 35 years, I've been involved in the beer industry in many capacities, including Beer Writer, Beer Judge and Beer Educator. My books include "Beer Across America", "Beer for Dummies" and "Homebrewing for Dummies". I am a professional beer judge at the Great American Beer Festival, the World Beer Cup, Festival of Barrel Aged Beer and Copa Cerveza de Americas in South America As a beer educator, I am on the Advisory Board for College of DuPage "Business of Craft Beer" certificate program, where I teach the the program's two prerequisite introductory classes. Most recently I earned Draught Master status at the Heineken brewery in Amsterdam and I do quality training on behalf of the Heineken brand. Just for fun I have also visited over 500 breweries on three continents.
