The Ravenswood community comes together for the 2nd Annual ‘Malt Row on Damen’ craft beer stroll on Wednesday, July 17, from 5:30-8:30 pm. The Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce partners together with Malt Row breweries and distilleries to give Chicagoans a taste of what Malt Row has to offer at local shops and restaurants along Damen Avenue.
Fun fact: all the beer produced at Malt Row on Damen comes from within 1 mile of the event.
Located along Damen Avenue between Leland and Argyle, strollers have a selection of beer tastings available while visiting a variety of local small businesses. Participating breweries and distilleries include Band of Bohemia, Dovetail Brewery, Empirical Brewery, Half Acre Beer Company, KOVAL Distillery, and Spiteful Brewing.
“Malt Row on Damen is a smaller, more concentrated community event so people can really get to know our local businesses,” says Gene Wagendrof III, Associate Director of the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a great way to enjoy a mid-week evening with friends after work. Grab a beer, walk around exploring Damen Avenue, Malt Row, and finish the night listening to live music at the farmers market.”
Besides the breweries, additional Ravenswood businesses participating in the stroll include Amy’s Candy Bar, District, Eye See Ravenswood, Gallery Studio Oh!, One Key Yoga, Ravensgoods, Rock n’ Roll Vintage Guitar, and more! Once strollers have finished exploring, they can visit the Ravenswood Farmers Market for an evening with live music, fresh food, and a plethora of special guest vendors. More information on participating vendors coming soon.
