Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, April 8-10

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, April 8-10
Ukranian Varvar Golden Ale fundraiser at Monk's Pub.

Hooray! I finally got the issue with my amateur hour Google Calendar app straightened out. All it took was hanging on the Discord group for my carrier’s tech support. They helped my figure out that I was trying to simply the file structure of my web page, and I had just moved the app files to the wrong directory. So now whenever I find a new event, I can add it right away.

It seems I had no real craft beer-centric events for the Cubs Opening Day on Thursday. And there will likely be no big events for the White Sox opener on April 12. Guess you can just saunter into your favorite beer bar with a screen and enjoy something tasty.

It’s really too late to stick this in my previous event list, but Thursday April 7, Monk’s Pub at 205 W. Lake Street in Chicago is hosting Martin Dawson from Varvar Brewery in Kyiv, Ukraine. He’s done a collaboration with Saugatuck Brewing Co., called Ukrainian Golden Ale. in efforts to support those impacted by the current tragic events.Help us bring awareness to this new distinct beer style, while learning about craft brewing in Ukraine and supporting our friends in need. $2 from every pint goes to Jose Andres World Central Kitchen, helping to feed Ukrainian refugees.
