The third annual Chicago Craft Beer Week is, “Chicago: A City of Neighborhoods.” The craft beer community in Chicago invites you to explore the city through great beer, tastings, restaurants and more.
Chicago will be divided into nine neighborhoods plus the suburbs. The goal is to entice patrons to explore the depth and breadth of local craft beer and honor those who enrich our community of beer lovers.
It’s expected that more than 200 venues will participate this year, offering special $4 tastings of rare beers and other special events throughout the week. Festivities will begin with the “Beer Under Glass” event at Garfield Park Conservatory and end with the closing party at Revolution Brewing’s new production facility.
This year’s participation process for both patrons and venues has been simplified: lanyards are available free at a venue in each neighborhood, and there is no charge for venues to participate (but registration is required).
