Seriously, though, we are so very thrilled and extremely gracious to all the lushes out there that voted for us. Thank you! We heart wine, we heart you. And TimeOut Chicago, too. Oh, and Rick Bayless, cause he’s dreamy.
We were in good company with the other nominees, and very much think they do a rockin job with the wine, as well.

So, one day, Lauren Salazar from New Belgium Brewery gave LUSH a ring. She had grand plans to invite brewers, brew folk, and friends to a private ‘brewery only’ event right smack in the middle of the Craft Brewers Conference, the World Beer Cup, and copious amounts of public beer events. She wanted pig. And beer. And good people.
