Beer gets you through times of no money better than money gets you through times of no beer.
I really like beer. I drink it when I can.
My home brewpub is Flossmoor Station.
I also fondly remember Three Floyds before they opened the brewpub and you just drank in the warehouse.
Rock Bottom Orland Park is also a great place.
And friendly people have welcomed me at Back Roads Brewery in Laporte Indiana.
