Bar Bites Beer Bash Is Back!

We’re getting ready for Bar Bites Beer Bash, our annual walk-around beer tasting, on Monday, August 27. This event is more like a party than a sit-down dinner, although we’re serving BKC Bites from food pairing stations to match the myriad styles of beer on sample.

We’re particularly excited for some breweries joining the Bash for the first time. Founders will be in the house for the first time! Dogfish Head will also be represented for the first time. Ballast Point, Tyranena, Great Lakes, Indeed, and Uinta/Fair State are in. Return samplers include Lakefront, Central Waters, Deschutes, and Bell’s, and we might get one or two more based on space.

This year, we’ve introduced special early bird pricing: tickets are just $45 until August 19. After that date (or on the day-of if we’re not sold out) tickets are the full price of $55. Tickets include beer tastings, pairing bites, tax and gratuity. Get your tickets here:

We’re “Rolling Out The Barrel” for Beer Bash, with special tappings in the weeks leading up to the Bash. These are some high-quality, limited beers from some of our favorite breweries (which will all be represented at the Bash).
