Photos from 1997 Midwest International Beer Exposition

Owen found some old photos of his trip to Chicago's 1997 Midwest International Beer Exposition to meet acclaimed beer writer Michael Jackson and Merchant du Vin founder Charles Finkel. The Beer Wench and Owen learned a great deal about craft beer at this event...
