‘Beer Chicago’ exhibit chronicles the history of beer in the Windy City

Chicago has a long and storied history with beer, from the city’s first brewery established by German-Americans in 1833 to the Town of Chicago becoming official at a tavern the same year.

The Elmhurst Historical Museum has a free exhibit that traces the history of beer in the Windy City, complete with information about the science behind beer and an interactive video “bartender.” “Beer Chicago: The Refreshing History” opens Sept. 18 and runs through February 14, 2015.
