Beer Sleigh History
Since 2014, Barley's Angels Chicago has held this annual (with the exception of 2020) holiday-themed brewery crawl we call the Beer Sleigh.
Every December, we get dressed up in our best (and worst) holiday outfits like ugly Christmas and Hanukah sweaters, gaudy light-up necklaces, Santa hats, jingle bell bracelets, etc. and descend upon 3 breweries.
The Sleigh itself has changed year to year: sometimes it's a trolley, a nice bus, or a school bus. One year we had to do Ubers because buses were too expensive. In 2022 we've upgraded to a fantastic barrel-shaped bus from The Barrel Run. No matter what, we always have a blast!
Here's a comprehensive archive of each Barley's Angels Chicago Beer Sleigh - thanks to member Beth T for starting this archive and sharing it with us so we could share it with all of you!
