Here’s the deal…

Angels will meet at Atlas Brewing (2747 N. Lincoln Ave.) at 12 p.m. where we will receive a private brewery tour, a beer tasting and some snacks to provide a good base for the day ahead. Additional food will be available to purchase separately as well. At 1:15 p.m., we hop on the BYOB trolley and take a ride to…

Goose Island Taproom (1800 W. Fulton St.)! We will head on the 2 p.m. tour and receive a beer tasting in the recently-opened taproom. At 3:30 p.m., we will get back on the BYOB trolley and continue our journey to…

Emporium Beercade in Logan Square (2363 N. Milwaukee Ave.) This year, we decided to end the beer sleigh with a little friendly competition! Two beers and 10 tokens to end the sleigh ride! If you haven’t had enough fun, feel free to stay, get your game on and mingle to close out this fun-filled holiday excursion!

*Important Note! The trolley is BYOB and allows CANS ONLY! No glass bottles will be allowed on the trolley & Barley’s Angels will NOT be providing beer for the ride. No food is allowed on the trolley. Barley’s Angels will provide water to keep you hydrated!*
