Windy City Brewhaha

Leave the kids with Grandma and Papa and come to Chicago for the Windy City Brewhaha, a celebration of beer March 7, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel!

Beer: “A fermented alcoholic beverage brewed typically from malt and hops.”

Come learn about the history and future of craft beer! Don’t learn anything and sample 15 3-ounce pours in 3 hours! Find out why Columbus couldn’t have made his voyage without beer and why the Pilgrims sang the praises of beer! You know that bland beer you keep in the fridge? Leave it behind and come to the Windy City Brewhaha! Don’t know a pilsner from ale? You will!

Craft breweries represented at the Windy City Brewhaha include Finch’s Beer Company, Church Street (See? You can go to church!), Boulevard Brewing Company, Lucky Monk, One Trick Pony, Smylie Brothers, and many more!

There will be two sittings at Windy City Brewhaha: Session 1 from 1-4 pm; Session 2 from 6-9 pm. You are encouraged to bring along a designated driver (all the DD can drink soft drinks). Food vendors will be selling delicious Chicago-style eats! Absolutely no one under 21 years of age will be admitted.
