Gino’s East River North Loves BeerCCBW_Webpage_v2_RN

Help us kick off Chicago Craft Beer Week 2014 at Gino’s East River North! We’ll be knocking back a few of our favorite craft brews starting May 15 through May 25, and you’re not going to want to miss it! But seriously, what’s better than your favorite local ales paired with Gino’s East deep dish Chicago-style pizza? We can’t think of anything that beats pizza and beer!

Craft Beer Week Events

Join us at Gino’s East River North for beer tasting and meet the brewer sessions on three different nights. We’ve got a breakdown of what you can expect at our newest Gino’s location:

May 19-Two Brothers Flight Pairing and Meet the Brewer2 brothers

Stop by on Monday after work to meet the Brewer from Two Brother’s Brewing Co. located in Warrenville, IL. Owned by Jim and Jason Ebel, these guys know how to make a mean microbrew. It must be in the family blood, because their business is 100 percent family owned. The meet and greet starts at 6 p.m. We’ll also be offering mini pizzas with a flight of Ebel’s Weiss, Domaine DuPage and Northwind Imperial Stout all day for $10.

May 20-Aleman-Meet the Brewer and Beer Tastingaleman

It’s hammer time at Gino’s East River North. At 6 p.m. on May 20, stop by our shop to meet the Aleman and have some complimentary snacks while we taste “The Hammer”. What is The Hammer, you ask? It’s a collaboration between two Midwestern craft beer companies–O’so Brewing Company and Taphouse along with Chicago’s own Aleman Brewing. You don’t want to miss this.

We’re bringing the Local Option to you on May 22. At 6 p.m. join us for a brewer meetup with Alexi-the man behind the madness at this Lincoln Park brewpub. Alexi will be giving out Local Option Swag (skulls, anyone?) and we’ll be supplying Voku Hila to quench your thirst.

Gino’s East River North Specials

Can’t make it to any of our Chicago Craft Beer Week events? Don’t worry. We’ll have $4 pints of The Hammer all week and of course our delicious Deep Dish Nachos and Meaty Legend Deep Dish Pizza. Stop in and enjoy a pint with us!
