Sebastian Sauer, brewer from Freigeist Bierkiltur, wrapped up his long trip to North America with stops at West Lakeview Liquors and Northdown Cafe and Taproom this week. Sebastian brought four beers with him for thirsty Chicagoans to try including Abraxxxas (a strong, smoked Berliner Weisse), Ottekolong Kolsch, Pimock Hefeweizen and Hoppeditz Doppel Sticke Altbier.
If you didn’t have a chance to come out to either event but you still want to get a taste of these delicious brews you’re in luck. They will be on tap at Northdown while supplies last and bottles will be available for purchase at West Lakeview Liquors in the near future.
On Thursday July 19th The Old Town School of Folk Music and Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce’s Square Roots Festival kicked off with Summer Brew. Ten breweries from Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, including local Chicago breweries Half Acre, 5 Rabbit, Metropolitan and Finch’s, offered 15 different specially selected brews for attendees sample.
Food was available from local eateries The Fountain Head and The Grafton Pub.
Good times, good people, good food and good beer. What more could you want?
