PorchDrinking Co-Hosting Two Events During Illinois Craft Beer Week
This year PorchDrinking.com is pairing up with two local Chicago bottle shops for two great events during Illinois Craft Beer Week. Both events are designed to introduce the city to breweries that are new to Chicago or are out in the suburbs and might not be well-known to people living in the downtown area.

Living in the city we’re surrounded by great breweries. While there is an abundance of delicious craft beer in Chicago, the surrounding suburbs are also producing some amazing brews. Teaming up with Beermiscuous, we’ll be providing an opportunity to try some of the suburban breweries you might not have had before.
There will be special tappings from Une Année, Hubbard’s Cave, Pollyanna, Sketchbrook, Tighthead, Kinslahger, and Noon Whistle.
The event is free to attend and all you need to pay for is the beer you drink. Each of the breweries will have one or two beers to try and some of the beer on draft will be special tappings unique for the event.
