Cask Night @ SmallBar Divison

We've been telling you about how Chicago's beer scene has made serious headway, but it may be time for you to get out there and get a good smattering of local options yourself next Thursday, January 17. Head over to SmallBar Divison, 2049 W. Division St., at 7pm to taste a pretty stellar looking sample size, replete with newly distributed beers and new breweries on their cask pulls.

CASK LIST:
Three Floyds: Zombie Dust
Solemn Oath: Kidnapped by Vikings
Jolly Pumpkin: Maracaibo
Half Acre: Daisy Cutter
Oskar Blues: Double Dry-Hopped G'knight

SmallBar Division is also making available 30 VIP tickets whereby the tastings will come with food pairings and a chance to mingle with the brewers from Three Floyds, Half Acre and Solemn Oath. That portion will run from 5 to 7pm and you can get those tickets here.
