Golden Prairie Craft Beers to Drink at Sheffield’s Chicago

Sheffield’ s Chicago is a longtime neighborhood bar with a large beer garden.  Along with cold brewskis and bar food, Sheffield’ s is a great spot for barbeque.  Out in the beer garden, where brisket is basting and succulent slabs of ribs are smokin’ under the smokers, dine on the best BBQ south of Memphis with a fine American craft brew in hand.


Speaking of craft brews, Golden Prairie Fermentations – Chicago’s original small batch brewery, is throwing its 20th Anniversary Re-Release Party at Sheffield’ s on August 25th at 3pm.
