So not only is Illinois Craft Beer Week on the horizon, but it's also American Craft Beer Week, May 14-20. And there are a number of events related to one or both that are actually promotions running throughout the weeks involved. So they're a little hard to adjust to the format of the daily calendar. But here's one that came to me via email.
The brewers of Chicago's south suburbs are hosting a South Suburban Craft Beer Odyssey on May 14-25. Beer lovers can pick up an Odyssey card at any of the 9 participating breweries, and when you visit the other breweries, can get their card stamped. The more breweries you visit, the more entries they get into the prize drawing for all kinds of cool stuff, including gift certificates, apparel, tin tackers, growler fills and more! Turn your card in at the last brewery you visit on or before May 25 to be entered in the drawing.
Participating breweries are:
Evil Horse Brewing Co., Crete • 350 Brewing Co., Tinley Park • Soundgrowler Brewing Co., Tinley Park • Arrowhead Ales Brewing Co., New Lenox • Hailstorm Brewing Co., Blue Island Beer Co., Blue Island • Rabid Brewing Co., Homewood • One Trick Pony Brewery, Lansing • Flossmoor Station, Flossmoor.
