Online Doc Beer! Chicago! Beer! Maps! Beer!

by Tracey Urbick on Tue, Jun 25, 2013 at 03:57 pm

Your friends at MAGIRT have teamed up with their friends at PubQuest to create a special Chicago craft brewery and beerpub map for all of us heading to ALA Annual 2013!  Download and print it here, or get some of the limited printed copies that will be available at the MAGIRT area in the Membership Pavilion.

Have fun, enjoy, and we hope it gets you some good beers and good times!

Cheers from MAGIRT!

Every conference I make my own personal schedule which originates with the list of official MAGIRT events then gets embroidered with all the other events, official and personal.  I'm attaching the official MAGIRT listing converted to Word format, embellished with the beginnings of the dinner details for you to adopt if you wish.
