Join Chicago beer expert Bruce White for an evening full of Chicago beer history and lore, tasting, and socializing.

How does a virtual beer tasting work, exactly? Great question!

  • We will be sampling four different Chicago beers. Prior to the Zoom event you will need to pick up your beer package from the library at a scheduled time. Must be at least 21 to participate. You MUST have a valid CA drivers license when you come to pick up.
  • This will be held on Zoom meetings, so we will be able to socialize with Bruce and one another--but you always have the choice to keep your camera off.

What's on tap for the evening? (Sorry, puns and beer seem to pair well together.)

  • Learn about the basics of beer, including different beer styles and what drives flavor in beer.
  • Discover Chicago history, particularly related to beer, brewing, and sin.
  • Classes are led by Bruce White, Founder of Chicago Beer Experience. Leverage his beer knowledge obtained while leading thousands on tours.
  • This class is LIVE so Bruce can answer your questions in real time. The evening includes quiz/interactive elements.
