BEER (Half Acre, Goose Island, Metropolitan, Pipeworks, Piece and more) + FOOD (Urban Belly, Derek’s Dogs and Nice Cream) + MUSIC (Mucca Pazza) + ALL YOU CAN DRINK & EAT = ON PHOTON.
When tickets went on sale a couple weeks ago, they sold out in less than an hour. This party did not disappoint. I’m sure the Half Acre guys will put on several more successful events like the On Photon party, and the tickets will be even harder to get your hands on once word of this party spreads. Having a brewery like this in Chicago is great for the city and great for fans of craft beers. Can’t wait for the next event.
Note: Pipeworks was one of the highlight breweries for me at this party. I loved their Abduction Ale and Smoked Porter. These local Chicago guys are running their own Kickstarter campaign as I write this – looking to raise $30k before January 1st – and they are oh so close to their goal. Spend a little bit to help them get started (click here) – their beers deserve to be in your refrigerator.
Here are some of my favorite pics of the evening. You can see them all below – or click here for the full Flickr set.
