Russell Chibe, an associate in the Products Liability & Mass Tort Practice Group by day and a home brewer in his free time, recently launched a new column on beer that will appear regularly in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. “The Final Draught” made its first appearance on April 4 and will be published regularly in the coming weeks. Russ’s first column provided a quick primer on the ingredients that give beer its flavor and offered a few locally brewed examples of craft beers that fit various flavor profiles. As the column continues, Russ plans to discuss beer history, beer style and what’s new in Chicago’s brewing scene. In addition to writing about beer and brewing his own, Russ – alongside Dave Sudzus – has advised a number of small brewers on legal issues.
