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.

The Brewery: Upland Brewing Co., a brewery that pleases the masses with easy-drinking IPAs, and wins-over beer geeks with their bright, funky sours in Bloomington, Indiana.
The Beer: Hillwalker Saison
Tasting Notes: A lemony, yeasty saison with a touch of honey, respectable funkiness and big herbal quality. At only 4.7%, you can drink them all. All the saisons.
