Brewery News: Chicago: Deschutes Brewery's Street Pub comes to the Windy City, August 6th, before visiting Roanoke (VA), Twin Cities (MN), and Sacramento (CA)

Press Release

... Bend, Oregon – Deschutes Brewery is heading to Chicago, Illinois with its pop-up pub of epic proportions setting up shop on Saturday, August 6 from 2 – 10 p.m. at Logan Square. The ultimate craft beer block party, this 400-foot custom bar will be pouring beers from 60+ taps, including local guest taps from Revolution Brewing, BuckleDown Brewing and Hopewell Brewing. At each of its national stops, Deschutes Brewery works with local nonprofits to raise funds and gives 100% of the proceeds to aid their mission. In Chicago, Deschutes Brewery has teamed up Alliance for the Great Lakes and Logan Square Preservation.

Not only will there be a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers flowing from the Street Pub’s multitude of taps, but there are some culinary delights in the works for all the foodies out there. Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, is teaming up with local chefs Charlie Eure of Revolution Brewing and other special guests to create some dishes that complement the many beers being served (think everything from the brand-new summer seasonal Hop Slice Session IPA all the way to the big and bold flavors of The Abyss).

Local, live music from Chicago Afrobeat Project, Swift Technique, Bailiff and Railway Gamblers will help to round out the festivities. Look for a special souvenir from Oregon-based McKenzie SewOn, which will be on site creating live, one-off local prints for the event.

When: Saturday, August 62 – 10 p.m.

Where: Logan Square, 2607 N Milwaukee, Chicago, IL
