About this Event


The Open Bottle Fest is back for the 4th year in a row! We’re closing down the shop to bring you some of the finest liquid from Chicagoland and beyond! We’ve asked all participating breweries to bring limited-released and one-off beers only.

Brewery reps will be stationed throughout the shop, talking all things about their breweries, giving away swag, and pouring beers! Guests will also receive limited edition TOB Fest 4 glassware upon entering.

Any additional future details about the event will be posted on this Facebook event page.
