In our latest episode of A Quick Beer, we visit the famed Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer (FoBAB) in Chicago, Illinois,¬†which took place in November, 2022. Hosted by the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, the event features hundreds of barrel-aged beers from breweries across the country in a competition and massive weekend tasting. We’ve written about FoBAB before on The Bar Towel, and we were very excited to visit the festival again in-person.

Check out the new website for A Quick Beer where you can catch all the episodes we’ve done so far, including visits to Pittsburgh and Ontario’s Great Lakes Brewery, Indie Alehouse and People’s Pint. More episodes coming!
