The 6th Annual Chicago Craft Beer Week begins Thursday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 24th, and Flight 112 is excited to be a part of it! This event is meant to encourage and entice craft beer lovers to explore the depth and variety of local craft beers in our area.
There’s no denying that the craft beer movement has taken America by storm. Did you know that there are approximately 60 + local craft brewers in the Chicago area, with the number continuing to grow? We are constantly exploring new local breweries and craft beers to add to our menu – and we have quite an interesting and not to be missed menu of craft beers planned for the week!
Our featured tappings each day have been chosen because they are either rare, limited editions or special releases, or they are popular beers that have been aged in our cellar. Sometimes a stronger beer can be that much better when cellared and taste amazing.
For example, we are tapping the limited series 2013 and 2014 editions of Founders’ Backwoods Bastard on Friday, May 15th. This ale, which is aged in oak bourbon barrels, is released in November. Try a vertical tasting to discover the difference a year may make!
