Many of the kegs would work out at $1.61 a pint or cheaper.
One of Andersonville’s favorite haunts is selling craft beer by the keg as they look to see out the new wave of COVID-19. Hopleaf Bar down at 5148 North Clark Street in Andersonville has been forced to close its doors temporarily due to the latest coronavirus health and safety measures. The bar has been featuring unique beers, wines, and spirits since 1992 as well as popular mussels & frites from their Belgian-inspired kitchen.
It has now turned to its large variety of local and regional leftover kegged beer that are difficult to find anywhere else in Chicago. More than 20 kegs lie waiting to find their way to a new happy household. Hopleaf owner Michael Roper resorted to Facebook on the weekend in a bid to see if any beer-loving Chicagoans might be interested in enjoying a keg of craft beer from the comfort of home.
The post read “we hoped that we’d turned the corner on this pandemic but Covid is not done with us and thus we once again have some full kegs that we are offering to our customers.” The fresh and well-priced kegs are being sold on a first come first serve basis with some of the finest beers in the United States available at prices you would never have paid before. Roper writes that “the Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale can be bought and enjoyed in the comfort of had in the comfort of your home for as little as $1.61 a pint.”
As well as kegs of Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale there were kegs of Half Acre Tome Hazy Pale Ale, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Plank Dunkler Weizenbock, and Old Irving Beezer to name a few.
The kegs can be bought by emailing owner Michael Roper at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can arrange pickup time and later the return of the empty keg which requires $30 keg deposit.
