CU Beer Weekend Nov 13

This is going to be a busy week for beer in Champaign Urbana; so get your schedules planned now.

7 Saints

Rotating taps at Saints are still:

Bells Rye Stout
Southern Tier Back Burner Barleywine

Wednesday: Whiskey Wednesday, Half off Whiskey Category, this Wed, Bourbon + Rye.

Not exactly sure how open to the public this is, but if you read it here, call the bar and ask for Andy. I'm sure he'll let you in. 217-351-7775

Radio Maria

Radio has a new dinner menu. They also have a new bottle menu, it's been trimmed down to get rid of some of the less sellers, and to make room for some other beers. Highlights include Goose Island Matilda; Rodenbach Grand Cru; Allagash Curieux; Orval; Westmalle. There's also several Mikkeller's that are now on the menu, so that's nice.

There is no cover, no fees, no dues. Just show up with a beer that goes with the theme.

The November theme is 10%+ ABV. So you may want to have a cab on standby or a designated driver handy. Also, you might want to think about taking Thursday off.

Here's how my schedule is currently shaping up.

Friday: Radio Maria happy hour around 5. Probably go get something to eat somewhere after
Saturday: Seems to be free right now
Sunday: Hooters for football, The Prisoner remake on AMC on Sunday night.
Monday: Currently open
Tuesday: 3 p.m. Blind Pig Brewery beer release party. I'm probably going to the Illini vs Northern Ill game with Phil (from highschool)
Wednesday: CU Beer Club November meeting, Crane Alley 6:30 theme is 10%+ ABV
Thursday: Blind Pig 5th Anniversary Party, with Rogue Brewery Rep from 7-9. Beer Class at 7 Saints at 9:30, hopefully we'll get to do IPA's.
