  1. From "castello" :

    Congrats to the winners of the Longshot! Thanks Chris for the shout out! Wow, I was holding my breath and BAM a bigass shout out. It goes to show you, if you beg enough, good things happen.
    Ironic that I can’t seem to review shows on Itunes because I live in Cupertino, the home of apple and went to the same high school as Steve Jobs!

  2. From "Jeff VF" :

    Hey Chris,
    This may be old news, but I just saw via their twitter feed that Lagunitas has plans to have a second brewery up and running at the end of 2113 in your town of Chicago. I just wanted to see if you knew anything about it or had any thoughts on the topic.

    • From "ChrisQ" :

      Jeff, it’s not exactly ancient news, but yes I did hear about Lagunitas. In fact, I just heard a really cool interview with Lagunitas owner Tony Magee. Seems like he’s no one to shy away from controversy. You can listen to it Here

  3. From "Jen K." :

    Congrats to Joe for representing Chicago! Is the 6 pack relatively easy to find in the area? I could use some liquid inspiration for starting my first home brew with a friend this weekend!

    • From "ChrisQ" :

      Way to go Jen! What’s your first brew going to be? Oh and Binny’s will have the longshot sixers for sure. Just ask.
