    I will be visiting Chicago around the time of Chicago Craft Beer week. My original plan was to tour many of the local Chicago breweries, but it appears that a majority of their tours occur at the same time (Saturday afternoon).

    I am unfamiliar with the Beer Under Glass event, and have had a hard time finding information about it beyond the date and when tickets go on sale.

    Any information about which breweries (especially if all of the local Chicago breweries go), what beers are typically offered, environment, food, and if ticket price is worth it would be greatly appreciated.

    The Garfield Park Conservatory is beautiful space and is worth a trip for its own merits. There has only been one other Beer Under Glass event but reviews were generally solid. Here are some pictures:

    Odds are good that all of the local (and probably some regional) breweries will be represented with a couple of taps. I think the food/drinks were covered by the ticket price -- no tickets, no cost per pour, etc. And right now, there really isn't much more information available other than when, where and ticket information.

    ETA: Here's a listing of the breweries that participated:
