Rock Bottom Launches "Tasting Tuesday" and Hosts Craft Beer Appreciation Events to Celebrate Unique Beer Styles with GuestsReady to discover your next favorite brew? Since tasting them is half of the fun, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery has launched “Tasting Tuesday” to celebrate craft beer nationwide with beer enthusiasts as they explore unique beer styles. To keep in the spirit of its 25th anniversary, Rock Bottom will be hosting “Beers & Bites” craft beer appreciation events at its downtown Chicago, Nashville and Denver locations.

At all 32 Rock Bottom locations throughout the country, every Tuesday will now be transformed into “Tasting Tuesday,” where guests can select from five 1 oz. pours for only $4. With five-featured beer styles to choose from, guests can enjoy a variety of craft beer creations brewed on-site by local award-winning Rock Bottom brewers. Featured beer styles include: Hoppy, Wheaty, Fruity & Spicy, Crisp & Refreshing, Malty and Dark & Roasty. Rock Bottom fans can also use our simple guide as a menu tool when they select a beer style to complement the menu item they will be enjoying during their visit. Rock Bottom offers a fun infographic that includes beer and food icons to make pairings easy and interactive for guests.

“Get ready to turn your ordinary Tuesday into an extraordinary experience at Rock Bottom with the addition of our weekly special created by our local brewers as you taste your way through an expansive selection of unique beer styles and popular American craveable food to pair with our signature brews,” said Tom Dargen, Vice President of Brewing Operations at CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries. “With so many options to choose from, there’s no better place to enjoy an engaging craft beer experience where you can connect over stories, inspiration and love of craft beer. Come in and begin a new tradition for yourself that is over two decades in the making with your local brewer and team.”

To continue the celebration of its 25th anniversary, Rock Bottom will host “Beers & Bites” craft beer appreciation events beginning in Downtown Chicago on Oct. 26. Additional events will take place later this year in Denver and Nashville. During the events, guests have the chance to experience unique beers in all of the Rock Bottom beer style categories and learn which foods pair perfectly with their beer. At the end of the evening, attendees can submit a “guest vote” for their favorite beer featured during the event. Rock Bottom Downtown Chicago is located at 1 West Grand Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.
