“Beer Under Glass” was considered the opening event for Chicago Craft Beer Week (CCBW) in 2012. This event was sold-out, with over 2,000 people in attendance. The Garfield Park Conservatory provides a unique atmosphere that fails in comparison to any other outdoor venue.
Festival founder Pete Crowley has turned this annual event into a “must-attend” for every craft beer enthusiast.
