Blind taste over a dozen specially selected beers while enjoying delicious appetizers, entrees & sweets at our 45th Annual Fall Tasting!

This year’s tasting will be our 45th — one of the oldest and longest running beer events in the country!

For the 2022 edition, we are planning for a truly special evening at Double Clutch Brewing Company, who’ve just returned from the Great American Beer Festival carrying not only two medals, but also the title of Small Brewery of the Year!

Attendees will participate in a blind tasting of over a dozen Chicagoland craft beers before voting on their favorites. This allows the specially procured beers to be judged strictly on their own merits. When the blind portion of the tasting ends, the beers will be revealed and will remain available for your continued enjoyment, so feel free to go back for repeated samples of all of your favorites!

Our menu for the evening features a variety of mouth-watering options from the talented kitchen team at Double Clutch:


  • House Salad
  • mixed greens and kale with tomatoes, cucumber, red onions, pretzel bread croutons

  • Humus Platter
  • Bruschetta
  • Charcuterie
  • meat & cheese boards


  • Beef Sliders
  • Amish Wings
  • chicken wings with bbq or buffalo sauce

  • Portabella Mushroom Sandwiches
  • marinated roasted portabella, vegan mozzarella, pickled red onion, arugula, and roasted garlic balsamic vinaigrette on a toasted tomato focaccia


  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Mexican chocolate Cookies
