Discovery Park is another good choice for in the city.  Walk out to the lighthouse and you get some great views, depending on the weather.

While the Cell certainly isn't Comiskey, and most definitely isn't Wrigley...
True, it doesn't smell like a urinal. ;)  I guess for tourists it's a big deal, but to someone like me who used to live within walking distance of the park and went to several games, the "Wrigley experience" is highly overrated.  I did do a rooftop game once and that was... different. ::)
I love walking out of the tunnel at Wrigley and seeing the ivy and the scoreboard. There's nothing like it.
I also end up holding it for as long as I can, 'cause those mens rooms are nasty >:(

I bottled a tripel today and had a taste of my IPA made with Falconers Flight 7cs. Wow, I've got to grab some more of that blend. Tremendous aroma and big citrus flavor.

The Churchkey is awesome. 40+ taps and 4-5 casks, even more in bottles. And they do everything in 4oz pours if you like. I had lunch there during a conference and was able to try 3 beers and still be awake for my afternoon meetings. It's a bit of a walk from the Metro, but well worth it.

Oh geez...if you use Calypso, I beg of you to be careful on where you use them in the boil. So far I do not like what they contribute to bitterness or flavor.  I think they leave a funny lingering bitterness/taste.  I did an experimental IPA recipe with them for all additions and did not like it. Then I used them in a Rye IPA recently in my flavor addition...wasn't as bad, but definitely did not think it was a winner.  I'd say use Calypso for aroma only, but that's just my experience thus far.

That's been my experience, too. I did an APA with all Calypso and it had a real funky bitterness.

Brewing a wit tomorrow evening. It got hot early this year, so this year's first batch is going fast.

I've got a mild I need to bottle, if I can make time. I'm going to Revolution Brewing's grand opening party tomorrow night. They've been a brewpub for about 2 years and are kicking off their new production brewery with a bang -- 16 of their beers and 16 guest taps, food and bands. Should be a great time.

Bottling an IPA and brewing a tripel. In between a lot of work in the yard.

I'm brewing a mild sometime this weekend. I've got the starter going but haven't figured out the recipe yet.

I posted a recipe in the thread "Munich Mild" in the beer recipe folder. It turned out really good, refreshingly malty. I am going to do a variation on it for NHC with coffee and Cocoa Nibs.
Thanks, I'll check it out.

I racked my Falconers Flight 7Cs IPA this afternoon. My goodness, that smelled outrageous. The gravity sample wasn't bad, either ;)

I don't think I'd mash that high  using that much Carafoam, as I think it would finish pretty high. Otherwise looks quite tasty.

The Livery in Benton Harbor is close to there and is supposed to be very good. I haven't made it there yet, but a friend whose opinion I trust raves about it. The town is a bit grim, though.

I've got an IPA to bottle and a whole lot of organizing to do.

I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow after ferrying the wife to the airport. I have a pile of Falconer's Flight 7C's that I'm going to blast it with late.
