Garfield Park Conservatory offers 'Beer Under Glass'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


According to, the forecast for next Thursday includes "isolated thunderstorms." There go your alfresco drinking plans, right? Not exactly. Instead of heading to your nearest uncovered beer garden, make plans to attend the first-ever "Beer Under Glass" event in the climate-controlled (but still leafy) environment at Garfield Park Conservatory.

Seven local breweries (Argus, Goose Island, Half Acre, Hamburger Mary's, Metropolitan, Rock Bottom and Two Brothers) will be on hand to serve samples from 5:30-8 p.m., to go along with food from Marion Street Cheese Market and Green Zebra. In addition to the refreshments, attendees can enjoy a composting demonstration, chocolate tastings and a beer-growing and brewing tutorial. The 21-plus event costs $35 in advance and $45 at the door.
