Chicago’s Independence Weekend in Beer, July 1-3
As usually happens, the July 4 holiday is usually lite on events. This year’s it can be partly because Independence Day falls on a Monday, when many beer places are closed anyway. Meanwhile, many venues are “pre-loading” with specials for your long weekend. And I’ll hope to have some spots with July 4 events in my next listing.
Meanwhile, Twisted Hippo, the Albany Park brewery that was destroyed by a fire this past spring, has posted some hopeful news to its Facebook page:
We continue to search for a space in or near Albany Park to serve our community. The search is daunting, but we are committed. Albany Park is our heart.
Until then, we are pleased to report that Twisted Hippo beer will be available again by the end of the summer though partnership with another wonderful brewer in the Chicago area. There are still details to attend to, but an official announcement will be coming soon.
Friday, July 1
Saturday, July 2
Sunday, July 3
