2019 Fall Tasting & Dinner

Chicago Beer Society Presents:
2019 Fall Tasting and Dinner

Saturday November 16, 2019
6:00 PM – 10:00PM

Once Upon a Party Banquet
5911 W. Montrose
Chicago, IL

This year’s tasting will be our 43rd Annual — making it one of the oldest and longest continuously running beer events in the country! As usual, we are pulling out all the stops to put on a very special tasting that you will not want to miss.

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

The event will take place at Once Upon a Party Banquet, and features catering from Jolly Inn, a Polish staple of Chicagoland for over thirty years, known for its great homemade food. The evening’s menu will include a buffet-style dinner, offering:

Meatballs with dill gravy
Polish Sausage
Dumplings
Potato pancakes
Pierogi with Sauerkraut
Cucumbers with sour cream
Mix of pastries

21+ to attend. No children. No refunds.

Tickets available NOW!
