    A search on LTHF turned up only two results, one of which was mine :lol:, so I'll start a thread.
    This Sunday, March 4th {alert LTHFers might notice this contrasts with my usual typography of a calendar date} is the (lucky) 13th Annual Logan Square Draught Beer Preservation SocietyMarch Forth for Froth” pub stroll.
    If you did not click through, here is the itinerary:
    1. 4:00 p.m. Metropolitan Brewery, 3057 N. Rockwell St.
    2. 5:00 p.m. Maplewood Brewing, 2717 N. Maplewood Ave.
    3. 6:00 p.m. Owen & Engine, 2700 N. Western Ave.
    4. 7:00 p.m. Quenchers Saloon, 2401 N. Western Ave.
    5. 8:00 p.m. Logan Arcade, 2410 W. Fullerton Ave.
    You're most welcome to accompany us at any or all of these venues. I do recommend bringing cash, as settling your credit card tab to get to the next venue might consume more time than you think. I believe Quenchers is still cash only as well.

    The Logan Square Draught Beer Preservation Society
    presents "March Forth For Froth 2022"!


    After a one-year pandemic suspension returns the
    Pub Crawl in which neighborhood venues are judged
    on their ability to fulfill the tenets of beer
    drinkers, including the proper pour.

    Beer bars are experiencing intense strain from
    brewpubs and tap rooms. The salutary ones need
    our sustenance. The Pub Crawl is designed to
    assist in identifying them.

    Everybody is welcome! :D Visit a few, many, or all of
    the nominated venues. Bring your vaccination data,
    and some cash, as a venue may not accept a credit
    card.

    It will occur on Friday, March 4th, 2022 at these
    purveyors (map)

    The ballots have been collated. Here are the results of the Logan Square Draught Beer Preservation Society's "March Forth For Froth" Pub Crawl.


    1. The Beer Temple - 3173 N. Elston Ave.
      This might have been predicted to finish on top, but it was close. Its selection of beers on draught was outstanding, but it lost a few points for having to bring in foodstuffs from outside.

    2. The D'Men Tap - 2849 W. Belmont Ave.
      Its selection of draught beers was smaller than normal, but balanced. Its entertainment viewing level was limited depending on where you were in the venue.

    3. The Wolfhound Bar & Kitchen - 3188 N. Elston Ave.
      Here was the surprise of the pub crawl. It picked up points for its bright atmosphere, high numbers of draughts, its food selections, and the ability to show sports on televisions which reached all corners of the venue.

    4. Kuma's Corner - 2900 W. Belmont Ave.
      It probably fell this far because, although there is no longer a consistent line out its door, it still tilts closer to a restaurant with superb draught beers rather than a beerworthy venue with solid food. Nonetheless, perhaps drinkers should reflect.

    5. Reed's Local - 3017 W. Belmont Ave.
      The "dive" bar which might have been predetermined to finish at the bottom of the results clambered out of that slot by its intangibles. Consisting of a spectrum of beers on draught, both macro and craft, and its involvement with the community.

    6. Ludlow Liquors - 2959 N. California Ave.
      Something had to wind up at the foot. There are nice elements involved consuming here, including friendly, enthusiastic staff, and good preparation of food. Unfortunately, what sunk it was this is a cocktail-oriented bar, at this time of the season, its outside patio is not open, and its draught beer offerings were in twelve-ounce pours, failing one of the basic tenets of the LSDBPS (for 16- or preferably 20-ounce pours).

    In summation, the bars of Logan Square are still near the top as far as Chicago communities go. But as this reveals, there is room for improvement.
    I hope for next year, somebody else comes up with a good route for the LSDBPS pub crawl. It should not require a memo that March 4th, 2023 is a Saturday.
