Beer Under Glass at Chicago Union Station

A cornerstone of Illinois Craft Beer Week, Beer Under Glass returns to kick off the celebration Friday, May 13. Hosted where the State of Illinois meets the City of Chicago – under the glass at Chicago Union Station – Beer Under Glass will celebrate the collaborations, partnerships, and connections that define the Illinois craft beer community.

Beer Under Glass traditionally has been held at Garfield Park Conservatory. Ongoing renovation and construction would have severely limited capacity for both brewers and attendees, so organizers opted for a new twist on the classic fundraising event. Guests will enjoy a one-of-a-kind evening of craft beer that pairs samples from more than 110 Illinois craft breweries with the history and architectural marvel of the iconic venue.

Beer Under Glass runs Friday, May 13 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., with VIP early entry beginning at 4:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $50, and VIP tickets are $60. Current members of the Guild’s enthusiast program, ImBIBE, are eligible for a free VIP ticket upgrade as part of new membership benefits for 2022.
