Begyle is aware of my type | Chicago’s Artwork and Beer Scene

How come I haven’t been to Malt Row until a few months ago? I blame the huge number of breweries in town for this complete lack of knowledge, but hey, I’m not complaining.

Imperial Pajamas Coffee Stout

Strong publications mentioned my name

Begyle brows has presented some impeccable stouts lately which made me visit twice. My first visit was to try one of the Imperial pajamas variants released in March 2021. I chose the Coffee Imperial Oatmeal Stout and it’s a winner. This balanced, flavorful beer is ahead of coffee and chocolate.

In May, I participated in the launch of the Snooze Buttons in Barrel Aged 2021. There were two varieties (bourbon and rye) and of course I had to try both. These were two of the best barrel aged beers I have ever drank and I plan to make these releases a tradition.

Two outdoor seating areas

Please note that Begyle continues to follow COVID safety precautions and the rules are laid out on a sandwich board. They offer a nice patio on the sidewalk with a walk-in window to order. The brewery also has a spacious one Beer garden with umbrella tables.

So many beers to try

Aside from the dark beers, they also brew multiple IPAs, a Season, a Blonde Ale, Cider, and more. After my impressive visits, I look forward to experimenting with more of their beers. Thanks for the great introduction to Malt Row!

A spectacular mural will greet you about 10 minutes from this point. Turn left on W Irving Park Road and then right on N Ashland. As soon as you turn the corner you will see this phenomenal piece of the Ella & Pitr in the Ten Cat Tavern (3931 N Ashland).

Use federal cash to pay down Chicago’s huge debt — not on shiny new applications | Letters

Chicago should use all of its $ 1.9 billion in government pandemic aid to help reduce the city’s debt. That’s what the Federal Aid Act, the American Rescue Plan, is supposed to do – to cover lost revenue.

In a Sun Times message on April 14th report, Ald. Michele Smith, 43, appears to be complaining when she says the $ 1.9 billion in federal aid “barely covers” the $ 1.7 billion in city revenue lost in the pandemic. In reality, however, the city should only have received $ 1.7 billion.

Sorry, but the federal government also has problems. It cannot afford to fund the Chicago Universal Basic Income Program. And there the city is more than $ 36 billion The city of Chicago cannot go into debt either. The money should be used to pay off past debts and debts related to the pandemic. It shouldn’t be used for shiny new programs.

We cannot ignore the mountain of debt that is crushing the city.

When people defy the police

Don’t use it as an excuse for a terrible mistake, but do the Sun-Times editors blame a person who opposes or fights the police, given the inherently chaotic and dangerous situation that this creates? Police compliance reduces your chance of getting injured or worse by about 99.9%. I know it is a heresy these days to say that a person who is arrested should not fight. This is why most cops just answer calls and try not to do anything else. Good luck with the summer here, with your constant encouragement to the criminals.

Biden, infrastructure and climate change

President Joe Biden’s proposal to improve our country’s infrastructure, the American Jobs Plan, focuses heavily on combating climate change. The aim is to make our infrastructure more resilient to the effects of climate change, and it includes initiatives to reduce the emissions that cause climate change.

Biden’s plan would provide funding not only for roads, bridges, and transportation systems, but also sustainable homes and buildings, electric vehicles, and research and development for clean energy technology.

A report by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission on managing climate risk for 2020 confirms Biden’s climate goals. This document describes the threat that climate change poses to American energy, water, transportation, and communications infrastructure. For example, it is claimed that extreme rainfall, sea level rise floods, extreme heat and forest fires “challenge almost every element of transportation systems, from bridges and airports to pipelines and ports”.

The report concludes that “it is important that the United States set a price for carbon … without such a price … instead of accelerating the transition to a grid, capital will continue to flow in the wrong direction -Zero emissions economy. ”

It is for this reason that I am encouraged that the Energy Innovation and Coal Dividends Act was introduced in the US House. This bill charges an ever increasing fee for carbon emissions and returns the money to the American people.

Let us urge our members of Congress to take action to address this critical national security threat.
