Berries & Bros Block Party

No foolin', bromo sapiens, we're throwing a block party to celebrate the opening of our outdoor patio AND releasing two beers. Our wildly popular Raspberry Wheat Ale, "Summerly," will FINALLY be back on draft and in six-packs for the first time this year. We're also jumpin' on the haze craze and releasing our first ever Northeast-style IPA, so cleverly named, "Do You Even Juice, Bro?" Brotally hopped and br-oated up, this beer'll make you wanna be a bro-getter.

Because juice heads love some fresh nectar, we're live bottling this juicy goose from 12-1pm so you can literally buy a bomber directly off the line. Get here early bro-getters! That's some hella fresh haze!

Döner Men food truck will be on hand slingin' some fresh German street food from 12-3pm so you can get your Döner fix.

What kind of block party doesn't have live music? NOT THIS ONE!
Dave Rokos (12-12:30)
The Ramblin' Boys of Pleasure (12:30-1:30)
Matt Zach & Tom (1:30-4:30)

All sorts of block party games and good times will be had by all. So wear your most neon of colors, bust out those tank tops, and grab a cool pair of shades because The Berries and Bros Block Party is all about fun, fun, fun.

4.8% ABV, 18 IBU (draft and six-pack 12oz bottles)

For the second time ever, Chicago's GREAT LAKES TATTOO will be hosting a two-day convention-style tattooing event on March 19th and 20th, 2016.  Twenty artists from all over North America - including the 7 GLT residents and 13 invitees - will be doing one-shot tattoos from flash sheets designed specifically for the event as well as from the extensive collection at Great Lakes Tattoo, making this Walk-Up Classic a unique and important affair for tattoo collectors and casual fans alike.

To kick off the convention an opening party will be held Friday March 18 from 7-10Pm in Great Lakes Tattoo’s gallery space, Great State Gallery.
