Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 4-6

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, May 4-6
The 1862 Battle of Puebla, where Mexican forces defeated a much larger French invading army on May 5.

It’s another perfect storm of Cinco de Mayo, Kentucky Derby, “May the 4th,” and big beer fests. So most Derby event focus on bourbon; but not all. And a lot of our favorite watering holes might have something light instead of crafty, but food choices are excellent.

And tickets go on sale Sunday for Great taste of the Midwest. You can go to Madison to buy them, or take a chance on the mail lottery.

Friday, May 4
