Ravenswood on Tap

Malt Row is one of the most prolific craft brewing communities in the country – and it’s right here in Ravenswood! Each year, we celebrate this cultural ferment with Ravenswood On Tap, a two-day outdoor festival that is all about local.

Enjoy brews from Malt Row, KOVAL Distillery cocktails, special tappings, axe throwing, live music, local artisans, and some of Chicago’s favorite food vendors. Ravenswood On Tap is open on Saturday, 7/22 (12-10pm) and Sunday, 7/23 (12-6pm). Enter at Ravenswood and Berteau. A suggested donation of $10 benefits small business support and community programming from the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce (501c6), and public art and placemaking projects from the Ravenswood Community Council (501c3).

Local Music & Artisan Crafts

The Ravenswood on Tap festival also features a killer lineup of live music and handmade crafts from local artists and vendors.

Check out our Ravenswood on Tap playlist on Spotify. If you like what you hear, please support these Chicago bands directly by going to their next show, buying their music on their website or on Bandcamp, and asking for them at your local record store.

Proceeds from this event support the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce (501c6), Ravenswood Community Council (501c3), and several other community organizations. Volunteers can also help our Malt Row brewers pour beer as they raise funds for local greening and public art projects.

Ravenswood On Tap Wants YOU.

Our community-centered events are powered by volunteers like you. Sign up to help at the gate or ticket tents and we’ll donate $14 an hour to our non-profit partners. All volunteers receive an exclusive Ravenswood On Tap t-shirt from our friends at Luckyprints (plus some drink tickets)!
