Sadly, there haven’t been a ton of beer related events in the suburbs this year, so when I see one pop up on the calendar it certainly catches my eye!

This Sunday (Sept. 27), Red Arrow Tap Room (which I believe is now Tapville Social) in downtown Naperville is hosting a beer/cider and cupcake tasting event in partnership with Molly’s Cupcakes.

What I found particularly exciting is the involvement of local beer giant Marty Natchel! The guy is the Chicagoland beer professor! He teaches beer classes at COD, runs his own business Natchel Beer Education, and has literally written books on the subject: Beer for Dummies, Homebrewing for Dummies, and Beer Across America – A Regional Guide to Brewpubs and Microbreweries. Marty will be curating the pairings at this event, so you know they will be spot on!

They have stated their commitment to COVID-19 safety protocols, so attend with peace of mind, but also wear your mask!
