Kegs for Kidneys: Raising a Glass and Raising Funds


On June 6th from 6pm til 10pm we open our back lot to many local and national craft brewers as we work together towards raising kidney awareness with proceeds going to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois! 

We will be featuring some favorites and rares showcasing the best of craft beer. Each ticket will allow you entry, and a tasting glass for you to keep. As well, each person will be given a pamphlet detailing all the beers we are featuring. In addition to the many amazing beers you'll get to enjoy you will also have the opportunity to take part in a generously donated rare bottle raffle and silent auction. To give you an idea...last year's rare bottle raffle included a case of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout 2009, Brooklyn Black Ops, Central Waters 15, Dark Lord, BA Dark Lord, Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Vanilla Stout, Dark Horse Bourbon Barrel Plead the 5th, Heady Topper and much more! Of course we will have live music and plenty of food for everyone! 

Step out into the back lot (there will be a tent)and mingle with the brewers, distributors, staff and friends! Have a great time for a great cause!
