Saisons and Sours – Our CCBW Event
Chicago has long been known to make world-class stouts and IPAs, but recently many brewers have turned their attention to some oft-neglected styles in the area – saisons and sours.
Come celebrate Chicago’s up-and-coming farmhouse and funk producers. We’ve teamed up with Beermiscuous to host this event on Thursday, May 21st starting at 6:30 PM. THIS EVENT IS NOT TICKETED. Just show up and enjoy!
We’ve assembled the best Chicago has to offer, including:
Transient Artisan Ales – Presque (Wine Barrel-Aged)
Transient Artisan Ales – Ardent (sour saison)
Transient Artisan Ales – Hop Drank (dry hopped Brett farmhouse)
