When in Chicago, drink Illuminated beer
From Chicago, where the Illuminatus! trilogy is written, Illuminated Brew Works has arisen, offering products such as "Fnord," "Kallisti" and "Orange Sunshine."
Before I did this blog post, I did a little research to verify that this company is real. Apparently it is. But it's also not a big company; the beer is only available in Chicago. (If you do make it to Chicago, the official web site has a handy list of restaurants, bars and bottle stores where it is available.)
I looked at a couple of interviews, but these guys are pretty coy about the name.
They focus on making Belgian beers, by the way, and the company offers nice-looking T-shirts.
