Since the Christmas holiday takes precedence this weekend, there are few events on the calendar. However a number of breweries including River North and Intrepid Sojourner are clearing out merchandise and beer to make way for the new year so check your favorite local for possible last-minute gifts or a treat for yourself! And of course – Merry Christmas!
Saturday 23rd: Get comfortable at Zuni Street Brewing Company with their Cheese & Cheesy Sweater Party, which gives you the opportunity to don your worst Christmas sweater for a beer and cheese pairing starting at 4:00 (ticketed event $16). Regardless of whether you want to get cheesy, Zuni Street will offer beer releases and live music for all.
Monday 25th: If you run out of beer or simply want to enjoy the holiday with like-minded drinkers, Alpine Dog Brewery opens at 11:00 for an all-day Christmas party which will include several tappings and other treats.
