  • Winter Brew

  • Each winter the LSRCC takes the Chicago street festival scene indoors with Winter Brew!  On Saturday, Jan. 27, local brewers from around Chicago will be setting up shop in the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center's 5th floor Ballroom and 6th floor Skyline Lounge.  Each will showcase at least two different craft beers, and rare, specialty beers will be tapped throughout the day.  Come in from the cold and warm up with us!
