If you're comfortable with vintages and boutiques but couldn't tell an IPA from an American ale or a stout from a porter, this is the event for you! There were munchies and entertainment provided by the LFS brass players who know their beer. We had around 50 guests who attend and expand their beer palates while enjoying some great company before Oktoberfest! 

The Tighthead Brewing Company (nearby in Mundelein and home to the best IPA in the Chicago area, according to Chicago magazine) were all ours for exploration.  Thank you to the LFS low brass for hosting this great event!
