Where: Jaks Tap, Chicago, Illinois
At its core, Beyond The Brew is a panel/discussion featuring the best in American Craft Beer. Similar to SXSW or TED, these are informative talks that leave you with a new understanding of what craft beer is and the personalities behind it. What sets this event apart, is that it is coupled with interactive, craft beer tasting. But not just any tasting, each sample is hand selected by the featured speaker of the night, so that every 10-20 minutes, we will pause for that particular brewer (or distiller) to share that beer with the audience and speak on why it is special. Beyond The Brew is not just an informative panel or a tap takeover, Beyond The Brew is an interactive, entertaining, informative beer gathering that you will never forget.

This ticket price includes the discussion, a 5.5oz commemorative glass, and limited samples from the brewers.
