Kick Off CCBW

At Garfield Park with a beer in hand

Beer Under Glass ( “BUG”) is held at Garfield Park Conservatory, one of the largest and most stunning plant conservatories in the world. Event guests drink beer, explore the amazing plant collection throughout the conservatory’s eight interior show houses and wander through the beautiful gardens outside on the Conservatory grounds. This event is the kickoff event of the year (and of Chicago Craft Beer Week) and never disappoints with over 120 breweries from Illinois there to share. Beer Under Glass is a fundraising event benefiting the Conservatory’s programs and activities serving all Chicagoans and in particular our West Side neighbors.

Please enjoy this remarkable opportunity to enjoy Beer Under Glass.

This event is always held on the first Thursday of CCBW.
