Chicago Beer Festivals and Events in 2014

It’s Friday, so naturally, we have beer on the brain. And now that we’re entering the heart of the spring season, Chicago’s festival season is also starting up and about to be in full-swing, with several highly-anticipated beer-related events “on-tap” over the next couple weeks.

Well, situated directly in the heart of the South Loop—where high-rises, mid-rises, and loft conversions define the surrounding real estate landscape—a rare and perfect opportunity has presented itself for someone who truly wants all the benefits of living in downtown Chicago, but in a location that features a bit more elegance, charm, and character than many of the large-scale
