Sausagefest Is No Stranger To the Craft!

Sausagefest and craft beer go way back! Yesterday’s announcement that San Diego’s Ballast Point had opened a new brew pub in Chicago’s west loop was probably the best thing we heard all day! The news got even better after reading this Chicago Eater article about a special menu item, available only at Ballast Point’s Chicago restaurant: Habanero Sculpin IPA Bratwurst!

Ballast Point has been around since 1996 and its Sculpin IPA has long been a Sausagefest favorite. A Sausagefest research party will soon visit the new brew pub and will report back soon.

See you at Ballast Point!
