Craft Beer Ravenswood

Ravenswood on Tap, the neighborhood’s annual craft beer festival, returns on Saturday, June 22 & Sunday, June 23. Back for its fourth year, the two-day festival features beer & spirits from local breweries along Malt Row, plus food, retailers, artists, live music and entertainment.

The festival is located in “Malt Row” (Ravenswood Avenue between Berteau & Belle Plaine). Participating breweries and distilleries this year include Band of Bohemia, Begyle Brewing Co., Dovetail Brewery, Empirical Brewery, Half Acre Beer Company, KOVAL Distillery, Smylie Brothers Brewing Co., Spiteful Brewing, and Urban Renewal Brewery, and more. Event attendees can also be prepared for special guest breweries both Saturday and Sunday. A few of the pop-ups will include Greenstar Brewery, The Northman (Chicago’s first cider bar), Meta Wine, and Hop Butcher.

“Ravenswood on Tap is a neighborhood favorite because all of the businesses from breweries to retail shops come out in support of each other for a really fun weekend. Festival goers will have some of the best food Chicago has to offer while sipping quality spirits and beer while listening to local bands. It’s the perfect kick-off to summer!”

Gene, Wagendorf III, Associate Director of the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce.
