14th Annual Chicagoland Brewpub & Microbrewery Shootout

January 21, 2012
1:00 pmto5:00 pm

Come out and enjoy the best beers and best foods from Chicago area brewpubs and microbreweries as CBS presents the Chicagoland Brewpub & Microbrewery Shootout for the 14th consecutive year. Sample a bunch of beers and each brewery’s food item and then vote for your favorites (beer, food item, and beer-food combination). Winners will be announced at the end of the event. Support your favorite brewery or brewpub – or discover a new favorite. Either way, you get to taste the very best beer and food that Chicago has to offer.

The Shootout runs from 1-5 pm at a completely new venue, the Zhou B Art Center, 1029 W 35th St, Chicago. An event flyer and ticket order form for this members-only event was mailed in December. Orders were processed beginning on January 5. As this is a larger venue, we still have a limited number of tickets available to valid CBS members. If you are still interested in attending and did not already order tickets, contact us immediately via the Contact Us page.

Important note: it appears that the event tickets have last year’s date (January 22). The Shootout is definitely this coming Saturday, January 21.  Please make sure to come on the correct day!

While the Zhou B Art Center has a large free parking lot, we encourage everyone to take public transportation to and from the event. The center is located approximately 1 mile west of the CTA Sox-35th Red Line station. The CTA’s 35 bus offers regular service directly to and from the venue. If traveling westbound (from the Red Line or Green Line stations or the Metra Rock Island stop at 35th), exit at Morgan. If traveling eastbound (from the CTA Orange Line stop at 35th and Archer), exit at Aberdeen.
