Art And Alcohol Mix Well At Edgewater’s First Ever Craft Cocktail Crawl

For all those who appreciate a good craft cocktail and enjoy artistic outlets, a new local event is right up your alley.

The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce has partnered with some of the area’s most notable businesses to bring a variety of spirited options. The first Craft Cocktail Crawl will take place in Edgewater on November 9, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Participants of the event will be able to channel their inner artists by partaking in hands-on activities at local stops while sipping on their specialty drinks.

“Participants are going to have a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Executive Director of the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce Katrina Balog. “They will visit 10 businesses in Edgewater. At each stop they will experience something a little different. Experiences include a tour of Gallery 1070, which is not yet open to the public, while sampling CH Distillery, hands on jewelry making with AVP Jewelry and Beads while sipping Crafthouse Cocktails, and candle-making demonstrations with Edgewater Candles while sampling spirits from Rhine Hall.”

Participants include:

• Thorndale-area stops: The Growling Rabbit, Income Tax and Independent Spirits

• Norwood-area stops: RAM Art Studio and Edge of Sweetness

• Granville stops:  Chicago Mosaic School, Revival Social Club, AARTWERK Studio,
AVP Jewelry and Bead

The Edgewater Chamber along with their partners; CH Distillery, FEW Spirits, KOVAL Distillery, North Shore Distillery, Rhine Hall Distillery and Edgewater Candles have created a video about the event on YouTube.

“The idea for the craft cocktail crawl came from wanting to highlight our arts-based businesses in Edgewater,” Balog added. “What better way to bring people to Edgewater to experience what our creative businesses are doing than by inviting Chicago-based distilleries to sample at Edgewater businesses.”

Tickets are $40 and available through Brown Paper Tickets. For more information, go to edgewater.org.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Edgewater Chamber to help support their small business programming and also the Chicago Mosaic School, the center for mosaic education in the United States.
