Vintage Beer Fest 2014. On Saturday, February 15th from Noon to
5pm, Delilah’s (2771 N. Lincoln - (773) 472-2771) hosts its Sixteenth annual
vintage beer festival. More than one hundred beers, primarily strong ales,
barrel aged beers and live beers, from over 50 breweries will be tasted - side
by side - many in multiple vintages.
Regionally, Three Floyds, Goose Island, Capitol, Two Brothers, Half Acre,
Founder’s, Bell’s & Lakefront Brewing will be represented, and many brewers will be in attendance.
Strong ales have been traditionally brewed during and for the winter and
early spring months and are quite suitable for aging - often being brewed a
year before release. Many of the ales for this tasting will be sampled in
vintage with a few vintage verticals and there will be an emphasis on barrel
aged beers. We’ll also be featuring J.W. Lees Harvest Ale from the 1993
vintage, there will be a King & Barnes Festive Ale from 1998 plus ten vintages
of Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot Barley Wine.
A very unique experience to sample all these strong beers together. Some
of the vintage dated brews will include : Anchor Old Foghorn, Avery Hog
Heaven, Thomas Hardy’s Ale, Harvey’s Elizabethan Ale, Fifty Fifty Eclipse Stout
made in different Whiskey barrels, Portland Brewing Adam Barley Wine, Dog
Fish Head Immort Ale, Lucifer Ale, Trois Pistoles & La Fin Du Monde from
Unibroue, Malheur Millennium, Capitol Blonde Dopplebock - multiple vintages, Two
Brothers Bear Tree Weiss Wine, Maredsous Triple, EKU 28, and the Carnegie
