2010 Symposium Ale

Hop Cast put together a fantastic piece on the making of the 2010 Symposium Ale for the Chicago Craft Brewers Conference. The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild collaborated with area brewers to create this blend of four different beers  – Russian Imperial Stout, Scotch Ale, Barleywine and Imperial IPA.  The four beers were aged in Woodford Reserve barrels before being blended and bottled for the conference.
