Gapers Block Microbrewery (& Distillery!) Crawl
Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 12:00 PM
In the last couple of years, Chicago has become one of the centers of the craft brewing and distilling scene. We at Gapers Block thought it would be fun to put together a "microbrewery crawl" to showcase the great beers being produced in the area, taking advantage of the close proximity of so many breweries and distilleries.
The Gapers Block Microbrewery Crawl on Saturday, April 6 kicks off at Andersonville's great Metropolitan Brewery and travels by foot and bus to Koval Distillery, where we'll get a look at how eau de vie and whiskey are made. We'll find out what "community supported brewing" is at Begyle Brewing and how a brewery can operate in under 500 square feet from Spiteful Brewing, then finish up at Atlas Brewing Company in Lincoln Park.
For $45, participants will get samples at each stop, and get tours of some very unique and different breweries. Be a part of this unique experience -- get your tickets now! Capacity is limited to 60 people.
The crawl begins at noon at Metropolitan, 5121 N. Ravenswood Ave. (entrance is on Winona.) The brewery tour will start by 12:30, so don't be late! We'll head next door to Koval at 1, where a food truck will also be on hand to help fill your stomachs for the rest of the tour (food not included in ticket price).
Note: Transportation is provided from stop to stop, but will not be returning to Metropolitan. We strongly recommend leaving your car at home. Must be 21 or older to participate in this event. You'll be required to sign a legal disclaimer at registration.
