March 9 @ The Field Museum

The Chicago Beer Fest has always taken place at the Field Museum, but in light of their newest exhibition celebrating beer history throughout Chicago (which you should definitely also check out), this year seems extra fitting. From 8 – 11 p.m., sample tastings from over 70 breweries around the city, enjoy live music and vendor bites, and make sure to visit some of the select exhibits that will be open during the event. Tickets are $60 for VIP attendees, who get an extra hour of specialty pours at 7 p.m. General admission is $45.

TBD @ Headquarters Beercade

The date isn’t set in stone just yet, but Firkin Fest figures to take place sometime in April. The venue, Headquarters Beercade, is worth the price of admission alone. Add in some cask-conditioned ale, and we’ve got ourselves quite the party.
