Over 40 craft beers, 60° temps (fingers-crossed) and a one-of-a-kind setting is what you can expect at the first-ever Craft and Cuisine event this Saturday. Hosted at The Park at Wrigley, the Craft and Cuisine event will offer over 40 local pours along with delicious food from renowned local eateries like the Girl and the Goat – all under the gorgeous backdrop of Wrigley Field.

As both a Cubs fan and a craft beer lover, this event is a homerun for me. Along with craft beers from local breweries like Begyle, DryHop, Greenstar, Off Color and Goose Island, patrons can also take in live chef demonstrations (food sold separately) and wine tastings at one of the two sessions happening on Saturday, May 13.

Tickets will run $49 for general admission per session, which will give you access to all of the above, along with a commemorative glass and live music throughout the day. The VIP package will cost $79, but does include early access to the event, along with a premium bar, hors d’oeuvres and access to the VIP terrace. And did I mention this takes place at Wrigley Field?
