Many thanks to our friends at Church Street Brewing Company and their wonderful staff for hosting us as well as a massive thanks to all the volunteers that made it one of the smoothest running events. Fun was had by all.

Over 45 Years of Great Beer!

This year’s tasting will be our 46th — continuing it’s legacy as one of the oldest and longest running beer events in the country!

For the 2023 edition, we are planning a special evening with our friends at Church Street Brewing Company.

Attendees will participate in a blind tasting of over a dozen Chicagoland craft beers before voting on their favorites. This allows the specially procured beers to be judged strictly on their own merits. When the blind portion of the tasting ends, the beers will be revealed and will remain available for your continued enjoyment, so feel free to go back for repeated samples of all of your favorites!

Our menu for the evening features a variety of delicious options from the kitchen at Church Street:


  • Buffalo Chicken Dip
  • Pretzel Station


  • BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders
  • BBQ Wings
  • Buffalo Wings
  • Pasta Salad
  • Potato Salad
  • Greek Salad


  • Fresh Baked Cookies
