Hey, there's a beer festival in Ye Olde German-Towny Hyde Park, complete with Bavarian views of alpine Lake Michigan, lots of jugs, lots of beer, some of it in jugs, and plenty of volkstümlich Gemütlichkeit of the kind only available in the neighborhood of Louis Farrakhan and Barack Obama. What the hell, it's a beer festival, people. There used to be Germans down here. Use your imagination.
Festivities along 53rd Street between Dorchester and Kimbark avenues include a beer garden, food vendors, live music from classic beer hall, brass bands like Akasha, Full Circle, and L.V. Banks, plus arts and crafts and export-oriented, precision machine tool technology, a pumpkin patch, and Germanic, beer-related kids activities, like bobbing for apples floating in large tubs of beer.
Cost: IT'S FREE!!!!
