  • Winter Brew

  • Each winter the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce takes the Chicago Street Festival scene indoors for the annual Winter Brew!  The weekend starts off with a smaller, more intimate VIP experience at Architectural Artifacts where local Ravenswood restaurants pair up with local Ravenswood Breweries. Then the big event takes place on Saturday with local breweries from around Chicago who set up shop on the 5th floor ballroom and 6th floor skyline lounge of the Dank Haus German American Cultural Center.  Each brewery will showcase at least two different craft beers, with some limited releases being offered.  It’s sure to be an event you won’t want to miss!
