Mash Tun is a new craft beer festival featuring some of the world’s best breweries. Flagship and rare beers will be poured alongside one-of-a-kind concoctions at the stunning Bridgeport Art Center at 35th and Racine. The festival will be held in the 19th century loading dock next to the center’s sculpture garden.
We will be pouring over 30 brews by participating breweries including our friends at: Half Acre, Three Floyds, St. Feuillien, Dogfish Head, Stone, Founders, Lagunitas, La Trappe, Pipeworks, 5 Rabbit, Virtue Cider, Unita, Great Lakes and others.
The festival is a celebration of the release of Mash Tun: A Craft Beer Journal, a new publication put out by your buddies at Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar and The Public Media Institute, a non profit arts and culture organization. Mash Tun is our paean to beer. It follows the pleasures and aesthetics of craft beer and how it intersects with food, culture, and society. We think you’ll like it.
Festival tickets are $40 each which includes unlimited pours of flagship beers, tickets for rare beers, a tasting glass, a copy of the Mash Tun Journal as well as some snacks. Food trucks will also be attending and vending. Tickets are available online through the Public Media Institute paypal website below or in person at Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar.
The Bridgeport Art Center has parking for over 400 vehicles, is close to the White Sox 35th St Red Line, the Ashland Orange Line and the Metra. The Chicago Beer Bus will offer rides to the Red Line L Station during the festival hours.
There is limited capacity and there will be no ticket sales at the loading dock.
