Beer on the Wall, 106 Main St., Park Ridge 312-720-3732 🌎
We've all been to the those New Year's parties. You probably already have about 5 invites in your inbox and each one of them requires babysitters, waiting 20 minutes for an Uber with a 10x surge multiplier, or trying to hail a cab while simultaneously fighting off exactly 7 other people also trying to hail that same cab when it comes time to go home. SKIP IT! Join us for an alternative New Year...the Belgian New Year.
You already mostly celebrate New York's New Year with ball drops and Seacrest so why not celebrate the New Year at 5pm CST (midnight in Brussels) and do as the Belgians do by indulging in rare Belgian and Belgian-inspired beers much more delicious and interesting than that $6 bottle of Andre you picked up at Jewel 20 minutes before your other party. We'll stay open a little after 5pm so you can enjoy the merriment and joy of a New Year, but we'll close up the shop at 6pm per usual. You can then head out to another party, or just throw on your jammies and be asleep by 8pm, like we plan to do. Your call!
Oh, and let's have a bottle share while we're at it. A BELGIAN-inspired bottle share. Keep your stouts at home kids, lambics, quads, tripels, saisons etc, coming out in full force. Taplist for the night still in the works but expect goodies from Drie Fonteinen, Une Année, Dovetail, Off Color, Firestone Walker, and more! No reservations, no cover charges, no bullsh!t, just show up and drink some delicious beer without all the hassle. Proost!

4:00 pm - 2:00 am 🍺 Special NYE Tappings at SV
Sleeping Village, 3734 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago 773-654-3971 🌎
SPECIAL NYE TAPPINGS AT SV |
RARE BEER # 1: Firestone Walker Brewing Co. - Stickee Monkee
Each year, Paso Robles' Firestone Walker releases a small-batch Barrel-Aged Central Coast Quad (Stickee Monkee) and a Barrel-Aged Barley Wine (Sucaba). This New Years' Eve we're tapping a rare barrel of Stickee Monkee, a lush, full-bodied dark ale with tons of barrel expression, from toasted oak to leather and rich cigar tobacco. This is the first of 5 special tappings we'll be doing on New Years Eve, so stay tuned for more!
#2 OEC Brewing - Antioch Blend #2
From Oxford, Connecticut's OEC (Ordinem Ecentrici Coctores or "Order of the Eccentric Boilers") comes a blend of ales that falls somewhere between a Flemish Red and an Oud Bruin style. About a third of the beer is taken from a blend of red ales matured in a large Sangiovese cask, while the other two thirds are from various ales matured anywhere from 6 months to 3 years in red wine barrels.
#3: Dovetail Brewery - Kriek
Earlier this year, Chicago's own Dovetail Brewery released a very small amount of kegs of its spontaneously-fermented Kriek, a cherry lambic style originating in Belgium. The brew was aged for a year in oak barrels before being rested with 2,300 pounds of Traverse City cherries. We procured a small barrel of what is likely the first spontaneously fermented ale brewed in Chicago since Prohibition and saved it for our New Year's Eve celebration!
#4: Cascade Brewing - Primordial Noir.
This blend of imperial red ales from Portland Oregon's, Cascade Brewing, is aged in Bourbon barrels with cherries and clocks in at 10.5% abv. Not often seen outside of the Pacific Northwest, this special brew is definitely a contender for rarest beer on tap on New Year's Eve!
