DARK HORSE AND LOCAL OPTION NIGHT!!! Thursday 4/26: Marshall, MI’s own Dark Horse Brewing, Co. is our Brewery of the Month, and we’ve got a special line-up of Dark Horse heavy hitters and Local Option beers brewed at DarkHorse. On tap: Dark Horse Plead the Fifth Imperial Stout, Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree IPA, and one of only a few barrels of Proportions, a very limited, citrus-forward Belgian IPA. Chicago’s own Local Option brews some of their delicious brews at Dark Horse and we’ll be pouring both of those, the hardcore American Muscle Imperial IPA (12.5%!!) and Sweet Lief Belgian Pale Ale. More details HERE.
SAMUEL SMITH SALUTE! 4/16 @ 7pm. The Bar On Buena carries one of the largest Samuel Smiths bottle selections in Chicago. If you’re a fan of these classic English beers, come in and receive a commemorative Samuel Smith Salute glass or T-Shirt. If you’re unfamiliar with Samuel Smith, it’s a great night to try some (or all) of them on for size.
DUTCH ‘KINGS’ DAY, SATURDAY, APRIL 26th. Join us for a line-up of great Dutch beer in honor of the Netherlands “Kings” Day. Each year since 1890, right around April 30, the entirety of The Netherlands has broken out in a flood of orange- their national color- to celebrate Queen Beatrix. Known as Koningennedag in Holland, it’s a day of celebration, flea markets and great Dutch Beer. In 2013, the Queen abdicated to her son Prince (now King) Willem-Alexander, so this year they celebrate King’s Day for the first time in more than 130 years! In honor of this momentous occasion we will be tapping some great Dutch Beers, Urthel Saisonniere and Hop-It, and La Trappe Witte. Check it here.
