And on the ninth day, the brewers rested. Beer makers and drinkers alike gathered at Revolution Brewing on Friday, the final day of Chicago Craft Beer Week 2011, for a sold-out bash fittingly dubbed the Beer Fistival (check out Revolution’s fist-centric logo in photo number 1), featuring guest pours from area breweries, music from the Four Star Brass Band, and a new beer from Revolution dubbed Red Scare. Our photographer was onsite to catch the fistivities; browse his shots below, then revisit more of our CCBW coverage: Beer Under Glass at Garfield Park Conservatory, Beerfly Alleyfight at Haymarket, and the now-launching 5 Rabbit Cerveceria.
