2020 Day & Night of the Living Ales
Saturday, March 7th, 2020
afternoon session: 1-5pm ($45)
evening session: 6-10pm ($40)

Bottom Lounge
1375 W. Lake St.
Chicago, IL 60607


The national drink of Great Britain, cask conditioned ales have been served for centuries.  Before brewers fell in love with artificial carbonation and filtering, beer was naturally conditioned by yeast in the cask, and served at a temperature warm enough to actually taste the beer.  A properly served cask ale is neither cloudy, flat, nor warm; rather it is bright, with a gentle carbonation, and served at cellar temperature.

Sample a vast array of different beers at our walk-around tasting featuring the best cask conditioned ales from Chicagoland breweries and specially selected guests. Food will be available for purchase.

Casks are handled by the Chicago Beer Society's own experienced cellarmen, trained in the UK to care for and serve real ale.  Attendees will vote on their favorites to crown The Champion Real Ales of Chicagoland for 2020!

This year we are also bringing back cheese! During the afternoon session Hooks Cheese, Mineral Point Wisconsin, will sample one of its blue cheeses, a sheep milk Gouda, a mixed milk number called Triple Play, and Hooks classic 5-year-old cheddar.

For the evening session, Dave Phillips of Cheese and Cheers (and an active member of the Chicago Beer Society) will sample a specially-curated selection of cheddars, blues and odd styles that pair well with cask beer. All the cheeses will be available for purchase at Potash Markets State Street, where Phillips spends his days running the chains gourmet cheese department.

Admission includes souvenir tasting glass, cheese samples, program & beer samples. All ticket sales and sessions chosen are final. All beers will be available for both the afternoon and evening sessions.
