I stopped in at Revolution Brewing in Chicago, Illinois and tried a few of their beers. The first one I tried was Fist City, an American Pale Ale. Very tasty. As described – crisp – and hoppy. The next beer I tried was the Ideology ESB. Good beer. Not the best ESB I’ve had but good nonetheless. And, finally, I tried the Anti Hero IPA. This is my hero! In fact, I also got a glass from the conference reception I attended tonight and am finishing it while I write this blog post. Very hoppy! Very Happy!
I stopped in at Solemn Oath Brewery in Naperville, Illinois to try their beer. I tried the Snaggle Tooth Bandana American IPA. This is a hop heavy beer. The description prepared me for grapefruit and other fruit flavors common to IPAs but I did not detect fruit flavors. I did taste LOTS OF HOPS. A great beer for hop lovers.
