My Favorite Washington, DC Craft Beers From 2013

Over the past few years, DC breweries have really been coming into their own and are now on an upswing. Still, DC is more of a brewpub-inhabited area.

My Favorite Chicagoland Craft Beers From 2013

However, selecting them from the booming craft beer hotbed that is Chicagoland is no enviable task. From Chicago's far west suburbs down to Indianapolis and up to the chilly regions of Michigan, the market has grown by leaps and bounds in 2013 and shows no signs of slowing down. Oh well, it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it. Without further ado...
