New Belgium’s Tour de Fat hits Chicago June 26

New Belgium’s Tour de Fat hits Chicago June 26

Is Tour de Fat a Burning Man for bicyclists, or clever beer marketing?

And why do we say we’re “driving” a car, but “riding” a bike? “Riding” implies no effort on your part in making the thing move.

Another area beer recall: Goose Island Matilda

There must be a bug going around.

Last week, this column passed along the notice that Bell's Brewing had recalled two batches of Two Hearted Ale because of bacterial infection that could cause souring.

Today, Chicago's Goose Island Beer Co. announced a recall of its Matilda Belgian style pale ale, also because lactobacillus was found in it.
