Beer Through the Years
Saturday, June 15, 2:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.
Beer has flowed through the Windy City since its beginnings and has played a pivotal role in building Chicago. Hop on board a trolley for this thirst-free look at Chicago’s beer history, and pour into three Chicago saloons as tavern historian Liz Garibay celebrates all things beer and bars. The journey begins with a special opportunity at Chicago’s oldest watering hole and ends with a unique talk and tasting at Piece Brewery and Pizzeria. Time to soak up some history!
