July is American Beer Month. I know you've already found myriad ways to celebrate this event (usually involving numbers like 6, 12 or 30), but here's one more: Barrington, a neat and tony suburb in northwest Cook County, is having a Microbrew fest on July 10. $25 before the event gets you a T-shirt, tasting glass, some other shwag and all the beer you can drink. Lots of regional brewers will be there, so hop on Metra and sample the wares.
