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.

  1. Locally Buzzed screening to kick-off Craft Beer Week in Evanston

    The Evanston Homebrew Club, in conjunction with Prairie Moon, is pleased to present Ryan Cappelletti's documentary "Locally Buzzed" on Thursday, May 19th at 7:30pm. Ryan will be present to discuss his experiences in producing his movie and discuss the finer points of craft beers. Admission to the screening will be $5. Prairie Moon is located at 1502 Sherman Avenue (847) 864-8328.

     From the Locally Buzzed website,"Locally Buzzed is a story of eight microbrew enthusiasts who took eight days out of their lives to drive around Michigan and interview brewers and people in love with Michigan beer, and Michigan. The crew collected over 40 interviews with beer fans from the tip of the U.P. to the streets of Detroit. Our goal is to show people this state has something very special to offer people. From the great beer to the great lakes and the great people Michigan is a very special state. Find out why Michigan is the great beer state along with being one of the top states in the nation."

    May 19th also marks the Evanston Homebrew Club's monthly meeting. If you're homebrewing now, looking to brew, or just love craft beers stop on by and make some new friends!
