In Pictures: Beer Under Glass

By Chuck Sudo in Food on May 18, 2012 8:20PM

Chicago Craft Beer Week officially kicked off yesterday with the "Beer Under Glass" gala at the Garfield Park Conservatory. This year's event sold out in a day and both organizers and conservatory officials decided to spread the event outside to the conservatory's patios. This was a great idea as it allowed attendees to enjoy some great beers under the evening sun and kept most of the crowd away from the areas of the conservatory still being rehabbed from the damage suffered from last summer's hailstorms

Here are some photos from the event.
