DARKSIDE

  • Emporium Arcade Bar 1366 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)
2018.jpg

Join Hardcore Craft Beer and Emporium Arcade Bar to celebrate the darker end of the craft beer spectrum paired with vintage arcade games.

As always, we're taking over the last Sunday in February. It's cold, and it's a Sunday, so chances are you have no excuse not to come out and imbibe with some great libations.

This event was originally conceived as a way for craft beer drinkers, new and veteran, to explore dark beer. There are a lot of misconceptions about dark beer, and it's not always easy to fork over cash for a 6 pack that you're not sure about. Darkside allows you to sample and explore some of the best dark beers on the market, some of which you may never see again!

TICKETS:
Online Pre-Sale: $30
Door: $40 (if we don't sell out)

WHAT YOU GET
• A bag of game tokens
• 8 samples (about 40 oz) of the beers available. You have the option to purchase full pours of any of your favorites as well.
