Fall Cider Cruise w/ The Northman Beer & Cider Garden

Kick off your Fall Festivities with The Northman Beer & Cider Garden! Join us for our annual Cider Cruise aboard Chicago’s Classic Lady. There will be numerous producers sampling cider around the boat, as well as hors d’oeuvres from The Northman menu. During the 2-hour cruise, we will host a few short talks on the history of cider, as well as highlights of the architectural history along the Chicago River. Participating vendors TBA soon!
Tickets cover the architectural cruise itself, as well as the food and cider during the cruise. There will be a wide variety of cider available, as well as a non-cider alcoholic beverage option (TBD) included in the ticket price. For those who like to enjoy cocktails & wine they will be available for purchase with a credit or debit card from the Classic Lady’s Bar. Cash is not accepted onboard the boat.
Hor d’oeuvres will be served on board the cruise and are included in the ticket price. No other food will be available for purchase during the cruise. Join us at The Northman Beer & Cider Garden pre-cruise for a light dinner before you board!
