New on Tap

In the mood for something new? We recently tapped English Sporting Beer from Midwest Coast Brewing Co., and we can’t get enough of it. Here’s how the brewer describes it on Untappd:

The British ESB (Extra Special Bitter) is a staple in the pub culture in England. A traditional style, English Sporting Beer has a nice malt backbone that balances well with earthy, herbal, and slightly fruity English hops. This beer is about putting our differences from 1776 and 1812 behind us, and hoisting pints with your mates.”

Laughs at Lakeview

Laughs at Lakeview is back with some of the best comics that Chicago has to offer. Come grab a beer and enjoy an amazing standup show this Thursday at 7 pm.

Who you ask? Follow the Laughs at Lakeview Instagram account for weekly updates on who’ll be passing out laughs each Thursday.

Tickets are $5 at the door and the show is 21+. Seats fill up fast, so be sure to snag a spot early.

Ready for some spook-tacular fun? We’re celebrating your festive spirit all weekend long, with beer deals for dress’er up’ers, plus a costume contest with awesome prizes. It couldn’t be easier:

First, don your costume and get 20% off your first beer. Easy as that.

2nd, enter our Instagram costume contest for your chance at amazing prizes. Simply come into the taproom rocking your best Halloween costume, snap a selfie, and tag us when you post it on Instagram with the hashtag #LakeviewTaproom. Just like that, you’re entered to win one of the following awesome prizes:
