The JBG Summer Tour comes to an end at one of our favorite stops Metal Monkey Brewing in Romeoville. Our first members to go pro have been kicking ass this summer, installing a brand new brew system and canning up a storm! Members Michael and Corey will be bringing a New Orleans feast of Gumbo and Red Beans and Rice (Donations of $5 for the food are encouraged). We will also have our beer raffle as well as discussing any end of summer events we have coming up. Metal Monkey is always a great host, so come on out for our final stop on the JBG Summer Tour.

JBG Summer Tour Rolls on!
Last months meeting at Elder Brewing was a blast, a big thank you to Kevin, who brought out a delicious taco feast for everyone to enjoy! We shared some great homebrew and discussed some upcoming events at Joliet's newest craft brewery, along with an ill-fated trip to the Drunken Donut for a Malort shot (Damn you Promis!) and regret!
We also held the first official JBG Roadtrip in July, drinking our way through Michigan by way of Grand Rapids and a final stop at Bell's Brewing in Kalamazoo. A great time was had by all as we learned of Corey's unbeatable checkers skills and Kyle's beginners luck at shuffle board. We also grabbed some really great beers for upcoming JBG Beer Raffles. The trip was a major success and I definitely recommend attending one in the future.
This month the JBG Summer tour rolls into MyGrain Brewing in Union Station downtown Joliet.
