Chicago St. Patrick’s Weekend Beer Events, March 15-17

Chicago St. Patrick’s Weekend Beer Events, March 15-17
Update 2: Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 15, for the 10th annual Beer Under Glass. The event is May 10th at the Garfield Park Conservatory, and is the kickoff for Illinois Craft Beer Week. Tickets usually sell out in the first day or so. You can get them at 10:00 AM Central time at the ticketing site. $60 General Admission, $80 VIP. Update: Okay, as of Thursday afternoon, I've got all my saved listings posted onto this article. But it's for certain a few more last-minute events will pop up. so do feel free to check back here! Once again I'm running late getting all these St. Patrick's weekend events posted. This is only partly due to the Facebook outage of Wednesday, where I find and save most of my events. Then our #1 Son failed to return last night from an evening at the game shop, at least 2 hours overdue. Of course he appears just as the police we called showed up at our door. Turns out he was walking one of his friends home. About 3 miles. That's the kind of thing he does. Please note that many of these locations are doing St. Patrick's stuff all weekend long. Rather than repeat them and make this article even longer, I have tried to underline the part of the listing that mentions extra days. I still have a few more events to add, so please do check back. And generally, if all you have is "green beer," you better have a good view of the local parade ("St. Patty" and "Irish Car Bombs" will also be frowned upon).

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, March 8-10
As of Wednesday evening, Saturday's Chicago Beer Fest, at the Field Museum is all sold out. And so is Goose Island's Stout Fest on Sunday. And the presentation on Women in Beer. I'm leaving the listings up for these in case you might want to see if more tickets were "released into the system." But we are rolling into St. Patrick's weekend celebrations, so there's that.

Well, Daylight Savings just hit me harder than I thought it would. I thought I had gotten enough sleep Sunday morning, but all day long it was, like, "Who the hell moved the Sun!?" Ravinia Brewing Company's plans to build a brewpub in Highland Park have been delayed after the Ravinia Festival sent a request for them to pay a fee to license the "Ravinia" name. The story in the Chicago Tribune notes that the name "Ravinia" was first applied to a village annexed to Highland Park in 1988, and that other restaurants in the area have been using the "Ravinia" name with no issues. Meantime, it's a busy week: first "312 Day" for Goose island fans, "Pi Day" for math fans, and coming up to St. Patrick's Day. I'll get a weekend event listing posted shortly, for as many events that I can find that offer something beside Green Lite beer and "Car Bombs". And by the way: St. Patrick's" is okay, "St. Pat's" and "St. Paddy," too. But "Patty" is a girl's name...

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, September 15-17
This may be my busiest Saturday for individual events, thanks to the many Oktoberfest celebrations going on. I've put in as many as I can that seem to have either local beer for some German imports, rather than just the usual "bucket of Buds." Have you entered my giveaway for tickets to Brooklyn Brewery's Beer Mansions, going on in this town next weekend? No? Then check this article...

Craft Beer Review: 4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout on St. Patrick's Day
Since I am spending St. Patrick’s at home putting together this weekend’s event listing, I thought I’d open an appropriate beer. After writing about beers that people have sent to me, I wanted to drop in one that I bought myself. Partly because the can design was pretty neat. 4 Hands Brewing Co. of St.... Read more »

You bet it’s been hard to winnow down all the events going on this weekend and next Tuesday. I simply had to put my foot down and declare that you’ve got to have better than green beer or buckets of “Chi-Rish” Lite beer to get on this list. But I still may have slipped. Friday,... Read more »

Chicago St. Patrick's Weekend Craft Beer Events
Update: The site to buy your Dark Lord Day tickets is now up! In my rush to get this little listing out, I ended up skipping over a lot of events that had little to offer besides either green beer, or the current Trinity of Guinness-Smithwick’s-Harp. Don’t even get me started on “Irish Car Bombs.”... Read more »
