For those of you that missed the 1st Annual Brews at the Shoe, mark your calendars next year. The festival featured over 150 craft and domestic beers. The VIP Brew Master package included special pairing of cigar and beer selections not including a full hour of music and tastings before the event was opened to all ticket holders. Each ticket holder received a souvenir glass, Horseshoe dice, bottle opener, and unlimited beer sampling from 4-8pm.
The band Maggie Speaks, Chicago's top cover band was the soundtrack to our afternoon as we made our way through the venue sampling top breweries.
Some of my favorites of the day included Honey Wheat Cask Bourbon from Shock Top, and Bells Midwest Pale Ale. What a fun afternoon of beer sampling to great music at the Horseshoe Casino. I am already looking forward to next year.
