Beerfest is an annual event held at Union Station (in the "Great Hall") where a ton of breweries (is that the plural to "brewery"?) from across the country congregate to sample and celebrate beer. There were tons of beers from a huge variety of subcategories. My favorites were a Vanilla Nut beer brewed in Algonquin, IL, a lemon shandy and the Crabbie's Ginger Beer. Everything was delicious, and there were tons and tons of options. I was wishing my parents were with me, because they both love beer and I thought they'd get a kick out of the event.
It was fun, and delicious, and I hope to go again next year!
