On the Road

Under fair weather, Crown Brewing hosted their third splendid Craft Beer Festival at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point on May 26. The event also featured a dazzling vintage car show and other amenities for picnicking and playtime in the surrounding park. In addition to brews from across Indiana we tasted Chicago area specialties, including amazingly fine profiles from two Orland Park, Ill., brewmasters: Joachim Kekoum at Harrison's Brewing Co. and Iain Wilson at Rock Bottom. Wilson, who preceded Liz Laughlin at Rock Bottom College Park, reminisced about his Indianapolis sojourn.
