About ABV Chicago

After many tastings and drunken nights, we decided that releasing our rantings and ravings on an unsuspecting world would benefit everyone.  With Ryan's background as a sound editor and Craig's drive to try the best beer around, we came together to create ABV Chicago.  We are completely independent, and it takes a large dedication on both our parts to record and release a new podcast every week.

Both of us have day jobs not related to craft beer and have bills to pay; Ryan has two kids in daycare, so there's even more strain on his bank account.  We purchase most of the beer on the show at retail, plus we have to pay for hosting of the podcast and other promotional items.

Ads are a tried and true way to earn revenue, but who really wants to hear us read ad copy during an episode or see a ton of banners on our website?  Not us, and we hope not you.  We want to retain our independence as long as possible.

So how can you help?  Easy.  Become one of our patrons.  With a donation as small as $1 an episode, you'll allow us to keep making hilarious and informative ad-free content, all while expanding our operations (to allow for 4 people on at a time!)

So what's in it for you?  Along with that warm, fuzzy feeling you'll get for helping, you'll get exclusive access to our Low ABV episodes and other similar, unhinged bonus content. All for a few bucks a month.  Phenomenal!
$75.72 of $100 per episode
At this point, we'd be able to upgrade our equipment to include up to four people at one time and make us sound better.  Imagine the clear craziness we could create with this!
