No cost to attend
Brewmaster Chris Rafferty is giving beer fans the opportunity to be the first to try his new brew as Rock Bottom Brewery Chicago hosts a tapping party from 6-7 p.m. on Thursday, July 21.
The brewmaster will release his “Fear! El Chupacabra” beer during the festive tapping party. Rafferty describes his creation as a “New World Vienna Lager, medium bodied dark lager, low hopped with complex malt flavors.”
Rafferty has been making beer since 1994, when he got his start at Tennessee’s first microbrewery in Nashville. Since then, he has worked at various microbreweries and joined the Rock Bottom team in 2006. His beers have been awarded several gold medals at the Real Ale Festival, Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup competitions.
Rock Bottom’s monthly tapping parties are open to members of its “Mug Club” (anyone 21 and over will quickly be signed up in the brewpub prior to the tapping party).
