beerfly.jpgWhat is a Beerfly Alleyfight?

Good question. 

May 14-20 is American Craft Beer Week and to celebrate we are starting the Beerfly Alleyfight.  The Beerfly Alleyfight is a new event that will not just pair, but tri-pair, beer, food, and art.  Ten Home Brewers will be given basic ingredients to brew a beer for the May 19th event.  They will pair it with a food they make (or they have someone make) and then they will be paired with a Chicago artist (could be a writer, a painter, musician, a dancer…) who will interpret the pairing in an ass-kickin’, alleyfight way like you’ve never seen. 

 Artists include Neo-Futurists Diana Slickman, Jay Torrence, and Mary Fons, dancer Mindy Myers, photographer Tracy Hurst, Mucca Pazza drummer Brent Roman, and more to come (I’ll be there too).

When is this Beerfly Alleyfight

…and where?

Saturday, May 19th from 1PM to 5PM at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, 1 E. Grand Ave., Chicago.

Tickets are $10.00 and include food, home brew, and performances.  Pints of Rock Bottom beer will be available for a mere$2 each.
