Beer geeks, get ready: San Diego’s Alpine Beer Company is making its Chicago debut this month. The “Nelson”—a hazy, straw-hued multifaceted hoppy ale with pine and tropical fruit notes—will lead the charge at an exclusive beer-tapping release event at Hub 51 the day after Thanksgiving. Complimentary snacks will be provided, just pay for what you drink! Besides, beer on Black Friday is non-negotiable—how else are you going to survive the busiest shopping day of the year?
