  1. Thanks for posting this. There has been practically no information available this year. That's a great list, lots of new names and big names. Conspicuously absent from the list...no Goose Island?

  2. As Goose Island was purchased by InBev, I don't think they are allowed at the festival anymore. I think that's really unfortunate as they brew some great beer. However, if the Clybourn Brewpub ever wanted to participate, they definitely could!

  3. Thanks a lot for posting this. I was hoping to have a list of all the breweries to accompany my Winterfest video
