God Damn I Love Beer

Finally a weekend in Chicago without rain or snow. With the weather prompting everyone outside an appropriately paired beer is needed.

The Maharaja from Avery
Beer Style: Imperial India Pale Ale
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - "great" and rajan - "king". Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley - fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence.

Aprihop from Dogfish Head
The best brewery on earth releases Aprilhop it's brewed with luscious apricots, finished with whole-leaf hops. A "fruit beer for hop heads..." Ale Street News
Tasting Notes: Fruity, citrusy, cedar, thirst-quenching.
Food Pairing recommendations: Salads, swordfish, Mexican dishes, barbeque, hummus.

My last recommendation is a party at THREE FLOYDS BREWING Co & BREWPUB.
Darklord day is around the corner and it's the only day of the year to buy Three Floyds DarkLord Russian Imperial stout. This is a festival where participants can meet other beer enthusiasts, sample beers from all over ,buy DarkLord, try Oak Aged Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout ,eat BBQ, Listen to live music. Located at 9750 INDIANA PKWY MUNSTER,IN; it’s a 40 minutes drive from Chicago’s south loop. Buy tickets in advance, it sells out every year.
