I’m Brandon.  Born and raised in Chicago, IL right in the Lincoln Square neighborhood.  I love everything about this city – the people, the sights, the bars… everything.  It truly is a great city to live in for many reasons, even more so if you love beer!

I have a multitude of jobs, but working on events at Fischman Liquors and Tavern up in Jefferson Park is a blast!  We took an old school taproom and liquor store, sprinkled in some of the best craft beer you can find, added some bi-weekly events and created something very special in the city.

Our bi-weekly tapping events are, of course, centered around craft beer.  Be it a specific brewery, or style of beer, we create a delicious beer line up, then invite out some of the cities best food trucks, kick in some live music and we have ourselves a little party!  On top of those events, we also through in some very special events we have each year, our Kegs for Kidneys fundraiser that we hold every June is a craft beer tasting in support of the National Kidney Foundation.  With over 30+ breweries representing, this surely is an event for beer lovers of all levels.

We also have our annual Fischmas event where we pull together 12 rare or highly sought after beers and have a 5 hour tasting!  The event includes live jazz music, raffles, an ugly Christmas sweater contest, snow and more!  This year, the event is on Saturday, December 14th at 2:00pm.  Tickets are still available for a cost $30 in advance, and $35 at the door!  The twelve selected beers for this event are:

  1. Samichlaus 2012
