Craft Beer Lakeview North Center


Gone are the stereotypes about women in beer. It used to be, if a woman did order a beer, it was expected she wanted something "light". More and more bars and bartenders are recognizing women, just like men, will drink everything from fruity berry Weis beers to the most hop-centric, hop-forward beer they can find. Women do more than just drink beer, too. Women brew it, sell it, market it, and deliver it, and the next AlphaBeer event will showcase “ Women In Beer”.

It makes sense; the event was inspired by a woman, it's hosted by a woman, and it's emceed by a woman: the delightfully informative and charming Jill Houk. This time, AlphaBeer is partnering with Barley's Angels Chicago, a group that works to expand the appreciation and understanding of craft beer among women by bringing them together with craft beer professionals to explore craft beer.


The 14th AlphaBeer will take place on Saturday, June 27, 2015, from 6p.m. to 9p.m. at A. J. Hudson's Public House, located at 3801 North Ashland Avenue in Chicago, a bar co-owned by a woman. AlphaBeer will feature the following 26 tasty beers and some very special guests, including:
