8th Annual Beer Under Glass

Beer Under Glass

As the breeze in the Windy City starts to warm up, locals and visitors alike know what’s approaching- Craft Beer season. Travel to the Garfield Park Conservatory on May 18 to celebrate the beginning of Craft Beer Week with the 8th annual Beer Under Glass.


Beer Under Glass

Kick off Chicago Craft Beer Week with the 8th annual Beer Under Glass, returning to the Garfield Park Conservatory on Thursday, May 18 from 5:30 – 9:30pm. Use your souvenir glass to sample over 200 craft beers from over 100 different local and out of state breweries. While Beer Under Glass has hosted a variety of small food vendors in the past, this year the event is exclusively partnering with some of Chicago’s favorite food trucks to offer food that will better compliment attendees’ beer tasting experience. Beer and food vendors for 2017 have not been announced yet, but continue to check the Beer Under Glass event page for an updated list!
