ZAP BITES: Quench Your Thirst on National Drink Beer Day


Calling all beer lovers! September 28, otherwise known as National Drink a Beer Day, is the perfect excuse to go out and grab a beer to celebrate this holiday. Before the seemingly never-ending winter weather hits Chicago, most of us want to kick back with a beer on the last few warm days. So, if you’re looking for a place to quench your thirst on National Drink a Beer Day, check out some of these city hot spots!


Summer, or as some of us like to call it, “rooftop season,” is dwindling away -- but not at Boleo. Located on the rooftop of The Kimpton Gray Hotel, this stylish South American restaurant & bar is open year-round. Its retractable glass roof means that rooftop season never has to end, despite Chicago’s four seasons. Not only does Boleo offer a variety of craft beers from Hopewell Brewing, Revolution Brewing, and more, but it also offers unbeatable views of the city.

Fisk & Co.

For those who prefer to stay grounded and enjoy the warm weather from a patio rather than a rooftop, Fisk & Co. is the place to go on National Drink a Beer Day. Fisk & Co. combines two staples of summer dining: fresh seafood and cold beer. During its “Aw Shucks” happy hour on Monday-Friday from 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, Fisk & Co. serves a ½ dozen oysters and beer from their rotating selection for only $10.


With the unpredictable Chicago temps, sometimes we need to escape the sweltering heat and cool off with a beer in some AC. Latinicity is a great place to enjoy some of the hotter hours of the day, otherwise known as happy hour. Latnicity’s happy hour is from Monday-Saturday from 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, with $4 cerveza specials that are sure to satisfy your taste for beer on National Drink a Beer Day while enjoying the food hall’s trendy atmosphere.
