My beer friends are about to have a blast starting today – Chicago Beer Week.

3rd Annual Chicago Craft Beer Week! This year’s theme is “Chicago: A City of Neighborhoods.” We invite you to explore our city via great beer venues.

Chicago will be divided into nine neighborhoods plus the suburbs. Our 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.
