The 2022 edition of our annual Fall Tasting reminded us how much fun sampling blind can be!
The venue was incredible (BIG shout-out to Double Clutch Brewing and their amazing staff), the food was tasty, and the wide variety of beers on offer kept tasters on their toes!
While there were many excellent options pouring throughout the night, the top 3 favorites (voted on blind by attendees) were:
CHAMPION: Goose Island (Clybourn Brewhouse) – Big News 1 (Imperial Stout aged on coconut & pecan – 13%)
FAVORITE: Revolution (brewpub) – Party Britches (Rye Dunkel – 6%)
FAVORITE: Ike & Oak – Woollysicle (Milkshake IPA w/orange, vanilla, lactose – 6.3%)
Many thanks once again to our host venue, and the volunteers & board members who helped with everything from hauling kegs to check-in to draft system maintenance to cleanup and tear-down! See you again next year!
