Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 3-5

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, January 3-5
Someone is playing football this weekend, aren't they?

Getting back to the twice-a-week postings, even though there are not a lot of events going on yet. Likely things will be thin until we get to the week before Super Bowl.

Friday, January 3

4:00 pm ♦ Bavarian Lodge Reopens
The Bavarian Lodge, 1800 Ogden Ave, Lisle, IL (630) 241-4701
Bavarian Lodge reopens after its traditional winter break, which began December 23. No major Friday tapping has been announced yet, but it's safe to assume there will be a lot of new beers on tap.

5:00 - 7:00 pm ♦ 2nd Monthly Beer & Cheese Happy Hour
Atlas Brewing Company, 2747 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago 773-295-1270
Come in after work on Friday and get a flight of paired beers and cheeses.

6:00 - 9:00 pm ♦ First Friday Food Event
Archer Liquors, 5996 S. Archer Ave., Chicago (773) 582-4767
On the first Friday of every month, we'll bring a food truck to Archer and pour a few beer samples for the enjoyment of all our Southside brethren! This time, not only will the weather be cold, but snowy as hell. Who cares! Come fill your bellies with hot food from Windy City Patty Wagon, plus newcomers Haute & Ready, Pierogi Wagon, and sweets from Sweet Ride.
Plus check out beer samples from Metropolitan Brewing, Sierra Nevada, and Lakefront Brewing (Milwaukee).

Sunday, January 5

12:00 pm ♦ A Sunday with Maine Lobster & Beer
The Tribes Alehouse, 9501 W. 171st St., Tinley Park, IL (708) 966-2051
At Noon, we will be tapping Maine Beer Company's Lunch, Mo and Mean Old Tom. We will also have a VERY LIMITED supply of Another One IPA in bottles. In celebration of Maine: Anyone that orders a Maine Beer will get 1/2 off our Lobster Roll Sandwich! (Limit one per customer! Offer valid from Noon til 2PM only).
