Yelp's Pursuit of Hoppyness Leads to Happiness!

Posted by Jelena Z

It was a beer-loving dream in Addison last Thursday night, where craft beer aficionados and newly-minted beer snobs alike fell for what the boys of Bigby's Pour House were pouring and serving! Chicagoland Elites came out to get hopped up at what some call the suburb's best-kept secret for hops 'n' suds... though, after this event, the cat is out of the bag!

Craft Beer Education 101 started with a flurry of flights to whet Elites' curious palates. Bell's Oberon, Allagash White, Firestone Double Jack, Two Brothers' Domaine DuPage and Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom (among many others) were soon the only language being spoken in the bar. Music to a beer lover's ears! Once Elites found their perfect matches, they could order a full pour from Bigby's brilliant, bounteous bevy of both bottles and drafts.

In between sips of artisan suds, Elites noshed on Bigby's signature flatbread pizzas. Spicy bacon and pesto pizzas made tongues wag, but the dessert flatbreads laid down the law for the ultimate culmination in culinary satisfaction. The Bacon Nutella creation made guests believe; the S'mores flatbread satiated the sweet tooth beyond belief. Guests couldn't help but attack this ambrosial spread!

The memorable evening was highlighted with board games, crazy antics and a whole lotta fun, Yelp Elite-style. Guests enjoyed their Bigby's experience so much that it's been reported via Yelp check-ins that many have already returned this past weekend! Now that's what we call a pursuit of hoppiness leading to happiness... or, heaven! Read all the glowing reviews here and take a look at Andres J. DeLeon's photography prowess right here! Until next time, keep it hoppy.
