This event is part of Beer + Glass, an exhibition at Pilchuck created in collaboration with the Chicago Brewseum. The exhibition highlights interpretations on distinctive beer glassware by four Pilchuck artists. Enjoy new perspectives on the Goblet, Pilsner, Vintage Pillar Ale, and Weizenbeer style glassware by artists Sean O’Neill, Victoria Ahmadizadeh, DH McNabb, and Beccy Feather. The month-long exhibition will kick off with a night that launches a specially crafted brew created in partnership with Seattle’s Pike Place Brewery and Chicago’s Forbidden Root Brewery. This collaboration is part of the Beer History + Culture Project, a two-year nationwide initiative celebrating how beer, past and present, is more than just a beverage.
