Ginvincible - The notion that one is "hot to trot" after consumption of gin. Back for the third time is Emily Kwasny of Temperance Brewing Co. with some Summer yummies. Birdsong is their easy breezy saison and this time, they did us all a favor and barrel aged it in gin.

And when it hasn't been your day, your week, your month or even your year...go to pub trivia at BeerShop!

They're back again and this time, it's hot out!
Featured on Chicago's Best as one of "Chicago's best Summer sweet treats", Crave Bar Chicago won us over with their fusion of pretzel sticks to globs of chocolate ice cream and ganache. There are 3 flavors to choose from and the truck will be parked out front of the BeerShop available to anyone coming in for a beer or simply walking by.

New beer is always fun!
Collective Arts Brewing Co. out of Ontario has quickly become our new brewery crush. With ridiculously fresh, hazy IPAs and perky sours, they have a quite colorful line up. Enjoy $5 pints, fun swag and stay for a Q&A with the brewer.
It's our party and we can eat empanadas and drink beer if we want to dammit!
The 5411 Empanadas of Chicago will be parking out front of the shop from 4pm-8pm. And since it's also our THIRD birthday and since we're boujee, we are looking to add a few more sparkles to this event. Check back on 04/02!
The goal is to wear as much orange as you can while drinking Belgian beer!
Seriously, though. For every piece of clothing that has orange in it, you will receive a raffle ticket and the same goes for every beer you order! The winning raffle ticket announced at 10:30pm will win a pair of tickets to the Chicago Beer Classic held at Soldier Field on Sat, May 5th. Get weird and good luck!
WE DO THE BEER, THEY DO THE BRISKET.
Best Truckin' BBQ is our March food truck feature and they'll be parkin' out front in just a few short weeks! Us Midwesterners love our BBQ and the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and mac n' cheese is something you deserve to experience this month.
Enter our bar, a place you'll find as inviting as The Three Broomsticks where you can gather your nerdy mudblood friends for a safer-than-Quidditch game of Harry Potter trivia! Grab yourself a Butter Beer, a beverage you may find quite appalling, and wash it down with some free pizza. Hold your hippogriffs! There are 21 days until you can prove to your buds that you're not a dorkus.
Temperance's line of barrel aged heaven is now available in CANS! Come find a variation in our coolers to take home or stay and sip our favorite variation of the 4 on draft and taste out some other goodies with Emily of Temperance Beer Co. After all, it is Tuesday Boozeday and it's also $12 flight night.
Celebrate Valentine's Day a little bit early for the chance to get one of the most unique sweet treats in Chicago at your local Beer Shop!

Try any (or all - judgment free!) of these flavors:
Milk Chocolate Madness
Dark Chocolate Decadence
Happy Freaking Valentines Day to you!
Beer and cheese - not many things have more chemistry together than these two.
