The second annual Chicago Craft Beer Week, May 19-27, will have an outpost in Evanston at Prairie Moon restaurant.

The event aims to celebrate all the outstanding beers available in the Chicago area and the restaurants and bars who bring them to us.

It’s organized by the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild as an exhibition of the city’s craft beer community, the venues serving craft beers and the breweries served in those venues.

Prairie Moon, at 1502 Sherman Ave., will host 4 events, kicking off the week with a special evening with the Evanston Homebrew Club:

  • Thirsty Thursday—Homebrewers of the World Unite! May 19
  • Firkin Friday with Arcadia Ales. May 20
  • Great Lakes Brewing Company… Great Beer and a Great Brewer. May 23
  • New Holland Brewing Company… Hell Yeah! May 25

Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl said she’s “thrilled” that the locally owned and operated Prairie Moon restaurant is hosting some of the craft beer week events.
