In the Midwest, people drink for the season. That means there's an incredible variety of beers available that are perfectly paired with the heat, cold, sunshine, or frigid dark of winter. This diversity was on display in Chicago, Illinois at the fourth stop of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp tour. Here, from the event, are some of our favorite regional pours.
Spiteful Brewing's God Damn Pigeon Porter: Chicago, Illinois
The Brewery: Spiteful Brewing, one of Chicago’s first nano breweries, and one of the first in the country to can beers at such a small scale.
The Beer: God Damn Pigeon Porter
Tasting Notes: Everything you want from a porter — roasty, chocolately, a little amber map character, but with plenty of Simcoe hops for a musky, citrusy aroma most often used in IPAs.
