In Pictures: Beer Under Glass

By Chuck Sudo in Food on May 20, 2011 4:00PM

Chicago Craft Beer Week kicked off with last night's "Beer Under Glass" event at the Garfield Park Conservatory. We've written before about how Chicago's craft beer community has exploded in recent years. While the number of breweries and brewpubs is impressive, it's the quality of beers being produced that's most impressive. From Half Acre's Ginger Twin and Daisy Cutter, to Revolution's Mad Cow and Dos Osos, to Finch's Golden Wing and even Hamburger Mary's Apple Pie Wheat, area brewers are pushing the envelope and getting creative for an increasingly educated consumer base.
