beer sleighCelebrate the holidays with 3 brewery tours in one fun-filled day!

We’ve been teasing you for weeks now about how amazing our December event is going to be–and now we are ready to finally share the details! Barley’s Angels Chicago is hosting a Beer Sleigh on Saturday, December 13th from 11 a.m. (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?) until 5 p.m. The ticket price is $60 & includes transportation, 3 brewery tours, beer flights at each location plus some food. Here’s the deal…

Angels will meet at Metropolitan Brewing (5121 N. Ravenswood Ave) at 11 a.m. where we will receive a private brewery tour and a beer flight. At noon, we head out the door with a case of Metro beer from the awesome Metropolitan crew to sip on during our long ride to…

Lagunitas Brewery (2607 West 17th St.)! There we will head on the 1 p.m. tour of the HUGE facility & receive a beer flight in the taproom, as well as some apps and snacks to help soak up all the delicious beer we will be drinking. Additional brews & food can be purchased separately. At 3 p.m. we will hop back on the bus and continue our journey to…

Lake Effect Brewing (4727 W. Montrose Ave.) where we will receive a private brewery tour, a beer flight and, get this, the tour ends in a neighborhood bar! If you haven’t had enough, feel free to stay, chat, mingle, drink & do whatever you want to close out this fun-filled holiday excursion!
