The BotW Bottle Share has returned! Bring a commercially packaged (sorry, no homebrews) limited/seasonal/out-of-market beer with you, and be ready to share it with others in exchange for samples of their limited/seasonal/out-of-market beer. For example:
Good ideas: Heady Topper, Dark Lord, Side Project anything, Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus (Izzy).
Bad idea: That beer you bought off our shelves 5 minutes before the event started.
Even worse idea: That beer you bought off the shelves at that big box liquor store a couple weeks ago (at least buy it local, jeez)!
Some other logistic notes:
1. Bottle shares will be held every second Monday from 6-9pm. They will be outdoors when possible and will be held at Off the Wall in the event of inclement weather.
2. If you’re planning to attend, please post what you’re bringing on the event page so we can limit duplicates and potentially build verticals/themes.
3. In the interest of time, we will only enter 1-2 beers per person in the official share. Folks are welcome to bring more but excess beers will only be opened after the formal part of the share is complete.
4. Attendees do not need a ticket to attend, though we may introduce limits later in the interest of space.
5. In the interest of organization and alcoholic liability, BotW staff will collect bottles at the start of the event and open/pour bottles in an orderly fashion. If you are overserved, BotW staff reserves the right to cut you off at any time–NO EXCEPTIONS.
6. When at all possible, please bring two beers of smaller format bottles so folks aren’t getting 0.65 oz of beer.
7. No scoffing or disrespect to other beer drinkers. Scoffers will be sent home with a 6pk of expired Hamms.

6:00 – 9:00 pm • Lake Effect – Pipeworks ‘10 Year Storm’ Wine Barrel Aged Wild Biere de Garde Release and Cheese
Beermiscuous, 2812 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago 773-698-6824 Map
This beer commemorates the shared 10-year history of Lake Effect and Pipeworks; and ‘Storm’ is the general feeling we have running our businesses. Biere de Garde is a style originally from Northern France (near the Belgium border), and is characterized as a relatively strong ale – similar to Belgian Dubbel – with hints of spice, a robust malt character, and a slight presence of alcohol. We took the additional step of aging it in Cabernet barrels for 9 months with a blend of brettanomyces yeast strains. This process imparts a lovely oaked character, with tannin, notes of fruit, and a mildly wild character of ripe fruit and clove; all this while being extremely drinkable – you might want another glass. As part of your drinking experience, we will have a few select cheeses (while supplies last) to pair with this delicious ale and further enhance your sensory experience. Owner Clint Bautz of Lake Effect and Owner Gerrit Lewis of Pipeworks will be there to hang out and talk beer. We look forward to seeing you!
Free to attend; draft beer for purchase with cheese tasting. Cans also available for purchase to-go.
