Roadtrip! Here’s the Chicagoland 2021 winners of the Great American Beer Festival

As the weather cools across Chicago, it’s the perfect time to become a beer tourist.  And what better way to roadtrip then by hitting up all the local award winning breweries that just scored in the 2021 Great American Beer Festival, which just went down in Denver.

Check out the list below.  Plan your trips.  And grab me a growler and/or four pack 😉  — [eric]
