Double Release! Market Rate and QingMing

No reservations for this summertime release, friends. And as humbled as we are to see people lining up early to snag a spot in line, there is enough beer to last late into the day. We promise. Past experience shows the line dies down sometime after 2pm, and we'll stay open till about 5pm. For information on these beers, head over to the RELEASES page. Cheers, y'all!

Hear from our co-founders Dave and John, as well as essential Field Museum staff.

Tickets are $40 (for non-members) and available on Eventbrite. This beer will be in the Bottle Shop on Friday, July 14 and will be distributed throughout Chicagoland soon after. ICYMI: These 750mL bottles will enjoy a preview sale on Sat. 6/24. Read more about that release day here.
