Chicago Beer Hoptacular! will invade the Aragon Ballroom from June 4 - 5. I know the Aragon Ballroom is used for boxing matches, dances & concerts, but a beer event? That's what I'm talking about! The list of breweries is impressive and should be a very cool event. Tickets are available now and you can get them here. Cheers!
Beer Hoptacular, a celebration for all true beer enthusiasts, kicks off its first year with beer samplings, demonstrations and fun from craft brewers, beer experts, home brewers, and local artisans. Attendees will enjoy a select variety of more than two hundred small-batch beers, the best of the best from across the Midwest, other regions in the U.S. and abroad. Those in attendance can interact with the brewers themselves and cast their vote to select the “Beer Hoptacular Beer of the Year.” Scheduled for Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5 at Uptown’s Aragon Ballroom, Beer Hoptacular will serve as a gathering place and educational opportunity for a growing number of beer appreciators who see the fermented beverage less as a route to intoxication and more as a timeless artisanal pursuit to be appreciated.
