4:00 pm ♦ Bavarian Lodge Reopens
The Bavarian Lodge, 1800 Ogden Ave, Lisle, IL (630) 241-4701
Bavarian Lodge reopens after its traditional winter break, which began December 23. No major Friday tapping has been announced yet, but it's safe to assume there will be a lot of new beers on tap.
6:00 - 9:00 pm ♦ First Friday Food Event
Archer Liquors, 5996 S. Archer Ave., Chicago (773) 582-4767
On the first Friday of every month, we'll bring a food truck to Archer and pour a few beer samples for the enjoyment of all our Southside brethren! This time, not only will the weather be cold, but snowy as hell. Who cares! Come fill your bellies with hot food from Windy City Patty Wagon, plus newcomers Haute & Ready, Pierogi Wagon, and sweets from Sweet Ride.
Plus check out beer samples from Metropolitan Brewing, Sierra Nevada, and Lakefront Brewing (Milwaukee).
