Choosing beers from A to Z is a challenge and it’s one we take very seriously. We strive to curate a well-rounded list of beers that not only represents every letter of the alphabet, but also showcases the many different styles available. The breadth and depth of creativity exhibited by brewers locally, nationally, and internationally is astounding and we take great pride in bringing a cross-section of the best that’s out there to you.
At our sixteenth event we’re excited to partner with Barley’s Angels Chicago. This group works to expand the appreciation and understanding of craft beer among women by bringing them together with craft beer professionals to explore craft beer. As AlphaBeer is an event that was inspired by a woman, founded by a woman, and emceed by a woman we couldn’t think of better co-hosts.
