Chicago Craft Beer Week, July 15-18

Chicago Craft Beer Week, July 15-18
"First Weekend at the Cottage," from the "Beer Belongs" series of ads by the U.S. Brewers Foundation, 1954

Time for an irregular reminder of what kind of events I promote on this list: Basically, it's anything involving beer sampling, tasting, new releases, or beer dinners. Beer festivals and the opening of new breweries. Fundraisers, so long as the general public is invited to attend.

I regret that I have not had the time to put in live shows or food truck stops. There are just too many of them to fit comfortably. Likewise painting classes, yoga, or even trivia contests. And I am about the trivia. If the event mentions the tapping of a new beer, though that would count.

I have put the "like" on nearly every brewery and beer bar in the Chicago area on Facebook. So I try to catch all your posts and new events. I'm also on a lot of mailing lists, to inform me of even more events. If you've got beer-centric activities you'd like to see in this space, just click the "E-mail Me!" link at the top of this page!
