Kiss Me, I'm Sauced! St. Patrick's Day Night Market

Windy City Beards will be out tomorrow night getting Sauced! What could be better then joining us for for some St. Paddy's day festivities?

Celebrate Chicago's favorite adopted holiday, the Day of St. Patrick, by breaking out your inner irishman for a night of eating and drinking Sauced-style. “Kiss Me, I’m Sauced” will be the words on everyone’s lips, when they are not busy eating sausages, dumplings and Royal Pies.

There will be no green beer, but there will be craft beer as well as maybe a green cocktail or two from Chicago Distilling Company.

Come for the food, stay for the assortment of local goods for sale, and never leave because the DJ just won't stop spinning your favorite tunes. Per usual, the event is free and open to the portion of the public that are older than 21.

A Big Chi-beria Thank You!

We want to thank everyone that came out to the Naperville Winter Ale Fest and supported Chicago's Beards!  It was a cold day, but that didn't stop thousands of people from bundling up, grabbing a pretzel necklace, and drinking some amazing beer in the 20 degree weather. We would consider this a HUGE success and look forward to doing it again.

Come Hang With Us! Sauced Night Market Chicago - January 20th, 2015

Sauced is a roving night market dedicated to emerging culinarians, artists and that guy from high school who’s a DJ now – an evening of food, art and debauchery set to the tune of “Hypnotize.” Sauced pops up from the underground once a month to make your evening more interesting – like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with less pizza and more steamed dumplings.

So this month Sauced is bringing the sauce - also known as local, crafty beer for your drinking pleasure. Oh, plus food, art and some guy who makes board games out of reclaimed barn wood. Friendly reminder, this event is free and open to the public (21 and older, please). Here's a little taste of what's to come:
