Black Wednesday: Dark Beer, Releases & Parties in Chicago
A raging-river’s worth of barrel-aged beer flows through Chicago during November and December. Breweries often release special beers and throw plenty of parties on both Black Wednesday and, even more-so, Black Friday. But, it all starts with the day before Thanksgiving, allowing beer drinkers an opportunity to party, as well as purchase some Turkey-Day goodies!

From Facebook (no event page):
Black Wednesday is nearly upon us! Stop by our taproom tomorrow from 3 to Midnight (yes, we have extended the hours) to enjoy some very special beer tappings.
The Innkeeper, our buckwheat dunkelweizen, is returning for your drinking pleasure. We are tapping a new creation, The Hexecutioner, an Imperial stout infused with pure liquid cacao and barrel-aged coffee. As if those aren’t enough, we will also be tapping both of our FoBAB beers, Hoo-ah and Soubrette.
We also want to make sure you have plenty of beer for Turkey day on Thursday, so we’re offering $15 growler fills.
On top of all of the extended hours, the special tappings, and the discounted growler fills you can also enjoy beers out of our brand new stemmed glasses, pictured below.
We hope to see you here tomorrow! Cheers!
