Week of June 10 and 17: District Brew Yards Community Events
District Brew Yards, the new collective home of Burnt City Brewing, Bold Dog Beer Co. and Around the Bend Brewing, is bringing folks in West Town a variety of community-focused events throughout the summer, starting with music and charity-focused events during the week:
- Tuesday: BYO Vinyl + Grooving every Tuesday from 5-10 p.m.
- Wednesday: Giving on Wednesdays—on the first three Wednesdays of each month, Brew Yards will highlight a different local charity and donate 10 cents from every ounce of beer sold to the featured charity.
The next iteration in Revolution Brewing’s popular Hero line is the release of their first-ever canned Hazy IPA: Northeast-Hero. Packed with Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Denali hops, this beer is a solid hazy offering that will available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans starting at 4 p.m. at their Kedzie taproom. I got the chance to preview this beer and can confidently say that it competes well amongst the best Chicago hazy IPAs out there. Check it out.
