Excellent Article Regarding The Burgeoning Chicago Craft Beer Industry

Imbibe magazine offers this rather tasty account of the exploding beer scene in Chicago fueled by the rise of the local craft brewing industry.  One of the stars of this emergent show is Revolution Brewing in Logan Square, which boasts several outstanding mainstay beers and is rolling out an increasingly excellent roster of specialties.  The article gets it right by specifically noting Revolution's two standouts, the Anti-Hero IPA and the Eugene Porter, both excellent.  The article recounts the long history that brought Chicago to here as the city's doors gradually opened up to craft brewing, led by pioneers such as Goose Island. 

The Seattle faction of our readership may say, "what took you so long to make strides towards being us?" but here in the Windy City, this emergence has been a revelation.
