5th Annual Northwest Side Craft Beer Crawl

  • Tipsy Cow Cantina (map)

Illinois Craft Beer Week starts Friday!

This means it's nearly time for the 5th Annual NW Side Craft Beer Ride! Organized by Lake Effect Brewing Compnay - It's a tour of NW Side bars, each one featuring a local craft brewery. There is a continuous bus route that runs in a loop from 6pm-12am with 3 buses. 

Simply show up at one of the 9 bars and a bus will come by and take you around to all of the other locations. Get off where you want, have a beer and meet a brewer. Another bus will pick you up and take you on the loop. Sounds fun? Get on the bus. 

Your ticket only covers the bus transportation and beer is separate. Must be 21 to ride! By signing up we will have your name on a list to check in but it is also a good idea to keep your order confirmation handy -digital or paper copy - as your ticket. There's a limited number of tickets available, so don't delay!
