As an active participant in Chicago’s vibrant craft brewing industry, AltusWorks – for the third time – was a proud sponsor of this year’s Festival of Barrel-Aged Beer (FOBAB) held at UIC’s Forum on November 20-21.   Hosted by the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, the event typically attracts the nation’s largest selection of wood and barrel-aged beers and provides a rare opportunity for the public to taste all of these hard-to-find beers under one roof.  Needless-to-say, tickets sell out within minutes.  AltusWorks’ Ellen Stoner, Joa Backstrom, Matthew Imburgia and Carolyn Isaacson took part in the two- day event that totaled nearly 5,000 visitors and where the variety of barrel-aged beer was nothing short of spectacular!

Congratulations to all medal winners, including AltusWorks’ current client Metropolitan Brewing, as competition was fierce among the 90 breweries that attended.  Cheers!
