Once again I have a chance to give away some tickets to a big beer event in Chicago! Read on!
Brooklyn Brewery is staging its annual Brooklyn Brewery Mash Beer Mansion tour, and it’s coming to Chicago on September 22-23. The venue is the event space Morgan’s on Fulton, 952 W. Fulton Market in Chicago. There will be beer, of course, and food from vendors selected by Eater, games, “Ditka altars,” and “seriously nifty technology.” Also expect live music and turntables for dancing. The Brooklyn Mash news release promises “an interactive, multi-room celebration of beer, food, music, more beer and community. Part of an international seven-city world tour, Beer Mansion stops in Chicago at Morgan’s on Fulton with a two-day event featuring room after room of themed beer-tasting experiences, home-grown Chicago breweries, local restaurants, Brooklyn Brewery beer and more. Guests can also look forward to live music by local artists, and a whole bunch of art+tech+games+hush hush surprises throughout each night.”
Beer Mansion will be spread through several rooms, with samples from Brooklyn Brewery and from some Chicago brewers:

*Kiwi’s Playhouse is one of Brooklyn’s Quarterly Experiments, a limited release sour ale aged in red wine barrels. They sent this to me as part of a goodie bag, so I shot a video with it:
