Celebrate Hops, History and Craft Beer Week with Denese Neu
Author of Chicago By the Pint
Entry is free!
Come enjoy a beer while learning about Chicago’s urban and social history. Using a variety of local breweries as the gateway, the author provides pint sized history lessons to enjoy with your pint. Described by the Chicago Reader as a “series of engrossing, meticulously researched historic vignettes”, Chicago by the Pint has been developed into a fun adult program that’s not just another bar tour or lecture about Prohibition. With two nearby breweries featured in the book, there will be some interesting stuff about Edgewater too! Come join us during Craft Beer Week to celebrate literacy, local beer, and local history.
You can order food off the menu, and the restaurant carries 136 offerings of craft beers. A special of $4/pint on Fireside’s own Gravity Ale brewed by Two Brother’s Brewing of Warrensville, Illinois; plus a Selection of other hand-crafted brews.
The author will be available for book signing and books will be available for sale.
