Festibarrel 2015 - Riverview Tavern

This weekend I was lucky enough to attend Festibarrel 2015 at Riverview Tavern in Chicago. This was the 2nd annual event celebrating barrel aged beers and it will definitely be one that I will not miss in the future.  Peter, who owns Riverview Tavern, was able to provide attendees with a regularly rotating list of phenomenal beers including a number of Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout variants; my favorite being the 2013 Proprietor's. Festibarrel also saw a large number of guests leaving with prizes as raffles were called off every 15 minutes.

This neighborhood bar located in the heart of Roscoe Village provided great character, beer, and really delicious food. You can check them out online at or by visiting them at 1958 W. Roscoe St., Chicago, IL 60657.
