Exhibit Opening "Beer Wars: Wets vs Drys on the North Shore"

Sunday, October 28, 2018
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Come raise a glass to the opening of "Beer Wars"!  Our new exhibit chronicles the story of Chicago breweries and of North Shore saloons and their battles against temperance activists who advocated for their demise. Included in the exhibit are historic photos and ads, part of an original bar counter, saloon amenities, and a special section about the saloons of Gross Point (now largely part of Wilmette). Please join us at the opening reception to explore a fascinating slice of North Shore history accompanied by craft beer tastings, soft drinks and pub snacks.
