Warm up your winter with the 1st Annual Emil’s Winter Brrrew Fest at CD&ME on January 30 from 1 to 5 p.m. Hosted by CD&ME and Frankfort Spirits, this is a 21 and over event, no exceptions. IDs for all guests will be checked at the door.
Over two dozen local and regional craft breweries will be on site providing tastes of seasonal beers. The $45 advance registration includes 18 sampling tickets, a collectible sampling glass, a raffle ticket and live music by The Weeds and The Acoustiholics. Food will be available for purchase, and additional beer sampling tickets are .50 each. A $20 designated driver ticket is also available featuring unlimited soda and water in the collectible sampling glass. (Designated drivers must be 21+.)
“We thought this sounded like a great way to get through a long, gloomy, Chicago winter,” said CD&ME co-owner Dean Vaundry. “A collaboration of a premier Midwest distillery, i.e. Frankfort Spirts, along with a premier Midwest indoor/outdoor venue, i.e. CD&ME, creating a premier Midwest Brew Fest—it only makes sense!”
