For those who don't already know....our local tap takeover events are a blast! There will be plenty of food, live music, great people and plenty of Chicago's finest ales and lagers to satisfy anyone's palate!
This best part is what makes this event so special. We'll have a dozen or more local beers on tap from just as many different breweries...almost all of which are usually in attendance. We definitely want to encourage everyone to feel free to mingle, introduce yourself, ask questions or even simply say "Hey" to the person that made that beer you might be enjoying. Maybe you don't like the beer. Talk to the brewers about it and maybe they'll be able to tell you about another style of beer you should try instead. Just don't be like, "Dude, your beer sucks!" because 1)it doesn't suck, you do & 2)nobody likes jerks, but constructive criticism is always welcome!
