A Classic Brew: Micro and Music at Ravinia

A summer night never sounded this savory. On Sunday, July 17, sip and sup with some of Chicagoland’s best brews in a pre-concert craft beer tasting event.

Afterwards, stick around on the Lawn to hear Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 (a.k.a. the “Pastoral” Symphony), performed by the incomparable Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Ravinia Chief Conductor Marin Alsop.
