Brewery Bingo Season 6

Over the next 5 months, we’re partnering with a new brewery every Thursday at 7pm for our monthly Brewery Bingo! No more sneaking into retirement homes to play bingo. Yes, we’re looking at you.
Here’s who’s up for the next months:
February – Half Acre Beer Co.
March – 18th Street Brewery
April – Bell’s Brewery
HOW TO PLAY: Imagine a Bingo card. Now replace the B-I-N-G-O with our 5 featured breweries and the numbers replaced with their most popular beers. We’ll spin our bingo balls ’round and ’round until a random ball decides to set itself free. We call the name (i.e. Half Acre’s</a> Daisy Cutter), you look at your bingo card, and then place a bottle cap on your card if you’re lucky. Get 5 in a row and win a prize!

Darkside MMXX
Feb 23 @ 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

2020 marks the 8th installment of DARKSIDE at Emporium Arcade Bar – Wicker Park.
Enjoy a killer lineup of some incredible dark beers.
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 reach 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)
