The best of beer
Spring has finally arrived and nothing says ‘Let’s relax’ more than sipping a cold beer in the sunshine. This month we have two beer-orientated tasting events to get you excited.
The first is the 6th Annual Chicago Craft Beer Week taking place from May 14th – 24th. Over 300 venues will show off their yeasty brews, offering special $4 tastings of rare beers. There are loads of events throughout the city and festivities will begin with the “Beer Under Glass” event at Garfield Park Conservatory and end with the closing party at Welles Park.
The second is Mayfest (Maifest in German) the traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring, still commemorated throughout Germany with the maypole decorated to show off the history and crafts of the local village or town. Logan Square Thursday May 28th– Sunday 31st will come alive with everything German, including polka, beer and pretzels.
