ROCK BOTTOM CHICAGO CELEBRATES PHISH WITH A FUNDRAISER

Rock Bottom Brewery in Chicago is once again fundraising for The Mockingbird Foundation!

If you're planning to attend one or more of the shows this weekend, or even if you're not, we hope you're able to support this fundraiser by visiting Rock Bottom and drinking some fine ales. They will be serving a strong, hoppy red ale, called "Sample in a Jar," throughout this weekend, and a portion of the proceeds from each sale will benefit Mockingbird. This ale has a "pungent heady hop aroma from loads of Citra and Simcoe hops," and it will be sold in mason jars with the Foundation's logo (as well as Rock Bottom's logo) on them.

Here are the details:

Thursday, July 17th: Summer Honey Tapping Party beginning at 6pm. $1.00 from every "Sample in a Jar" that is sold will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation! There will be live music from Whiskey Jezebel.

Friday, July 18th through Sunday, July 20th: The party at Rock Bottom continues... $0.50 from every jar of "Sample in a Jar" sold goes to The Mockingbird Foundation.

You can purchase the mason jar for just $2.00 from your bartender, server or host! Feel free to stop by to pick up your jar after the show as well for the same price.

The brewery's hours are 11 am until 2 am, and all ages are welcome. There are two main bars, as well as a rooftop beer garden. Please hit them pre and post show, if you can, and support this effort. They are right off the Grand stop - CTA Red Line, at One West Grand. From the venue, you walk about twenty minutes to the Red line at Roosevelt (the closest stop to the venue) and then head towards Howard. They're 5 stops away (7 or 8 minutes).

Phish.Net and The Mockingbird Foundation cannot thank Rock Bottom Brewery - Chicago enough for their generosity. This is the second year that they have hosted this fundraiser, and we are blown away. We hope you all support this effort. Thank you!

If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Phish.net. Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

Sativar Sample in a Jar is good beer, but they kept running out of the Mockingbird jars last year. I had three of these beers, but none out of the jar. Kinda kills the novelty of it. Regardless, good on Rock Bottom for helping to support our community!

jonnylips I got into Chicago in the morning last year so I hit up Rock Bottom right when they were opening up to drink a few of these and snag a jar. It's probably my favorite, and most used, Phish memorabilia. The beer was also very tasty and had a high ABV of 7.4%...

Yes, and Rock Bottom and the Foundation are both disappointed about that! And because that happened last year (I saw it happen myself), they ordered TWICE as many jars this year as they did last year.

So please, drink some "Sample" ale at Rock Bottom, and definitely let me know if they run out of the jars this time around. Thank you!

Yes, I meant to add in my comment above that the jars are very handy for storing goods of all kinds, whether intoxicating or not.

ProfJibboo If there are any mason jars leftover, please make them available on the .net store.

trogas Wish I could be in Chicago, but if those mason jars can be purchased from afar, I'd love to support the MBF and get a jar in the process!
