Cigars and Stripes will unearth Bigfoot this Saturday!

Cigars and Stripes is hosting quite a unique event this Saturday, September 22 from noon til 8:00pm. This bar is truly a hidden gem among the Chicagoland craft beer scene.

In 2007, Cigars and Stripes buried an anniversary barrel of Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot Barleywine ten feet into the soil of the bar’s beer garden. September 22nd, 2012, the day after the Mayan calendar ends, is approaching. On this day, this prized brew will be exhumed.

Simultaneously in California the same vintage is being stored in an oak barrel, climate controlled environment, along with other Sierra Nevada classics. Come help us celebrate this brew’s 5th birthday at this lively tent event with great food, great beer and live entertainment by the Butterfields, a surfa-billy psychedelic power trio.
