**Giving away an NFL jersey for a second straight week! More info toward the middle/bottom of the post.**
This week’s big additions at Windy City Liquor hail from four top California breweries, including: Stone, AleSmith, Alpine and Bear Republic. Alpine Ichabod 2012 makes its return after a long hiatus and this year’s version is a Pumpkin Porter. They loaded up on the pumpkin this year. Also in this week is the new portfolio from Rough Draft Brewing.
We’ll have to do a roundup of GABF-winning beers that you can buy online at some point but you can buy a gold medal winner in Logsdon Seizoen Bretta and a bronze medal winner in Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA.
As always, you are advised to take a peek at a) some of our handpicked selections below, b) new beer arrivals or c) full inventory (note: may be missing some new arrivals so check those, too). Their site is brand-new and a work-in-progress so, for now, you can place an order by calling the store manager, Julian, or emailing him. Shipping info and contact details here.

Windy City Liquor is going to randomly pick someone on the newsletter list by the end of this week (10/19) and ship them a NFL jersey from team of their choice. I’m told that you’ll even get to pick the player. In the near future, if you want to stay in the loop on new arrivals, the newsletter list will be the best way to do so!
Congrats to last week’s winner, Jeremy from Illinois, for winning a free NFL jersey. Now let’s hope that he doesn’t request Jay Cutler.
