Chicago Craft Beer Week at PRTR (2016)

Chicago Craft Beer Week (CCBW) starts this Thursday, May 19, and we've decided to hold a few events this year to bring some of the fun out west.

On Saturday, May 21, Kevin from Oskar Blues Brewery will be swinging by to spread good cheer and great beer.  In addition to $4.00 you-call-it-cans from the brewery, we'll have a little something call Barrel-Aged Death by Coconut on tap, along with some other OB goodies.  Plus, back by your demand, the Roaming Hog food truck will be out to serve up their tasty pork cuisine. Check out more details and join our Facebook event.

The following week we've got a double-header on our hands, with events on both Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, May 26,  Come hungry, the Roaming Hog food truck will be out back cooking up more pork dishes to dine on.  Check out what we'll be tapping from each brewery and join our Facebook event.

On Friday, May 27, drop everything and get out to the tap room ASAP.  Lucas from Founders Brewing is back and he's bringing liquid magic along.  You remember Lucas, right? The guy who never lets you down when he's here?  Yeah, that guy.  As for food, the one and only Toasty Cheese makes another Friday appearance to fill you up.  Keep an eye on the event page for more details.

So, there you have it, our schedule for CCBW this year.  Hopefully yours look similar.
