Chicago Culinary Kitchen has legendary status for a reason - they are TV famous, and their BBQ is worth waiting for, as the hoards of people in line at their restaurant in Palatine every weekend would testify. Get this famous fare at Chicago Ale Fest from their brand new truck! Think Tex Mex and BBQ, all under one roof. We can pretty much guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Authentic Mexican food, traditional meats, homemade salsas, all super fresh. This is the best of the best with it comes to real good tacos in Chicago. Oh, and they don’t discriminate - breakfast and lunch tacos and burritos available all day!

Sausage Fest


The name kind of says it all. A variety of freshly grilled sausages wrapped in delicious buns. You decide if they are the best sausages in Chicago, period. Plus, is there a better combo than beer and sausage? Side-note: new to the truck is a brand new vegan Italian sausage.

Chicago’s original craft beer festival will have more beer, more attitude and more… other stuff than ever before. What other stuff? In addition to our 100+ craft beers, we’ll have some of Chicago’s favorite food trucks, a DJ playing all your favorites, a beer bicycle, a live photo booth and much more. BeerHoptacular takes place over on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the awe-inspiring Vertiport Chicago. For the ninth time, Chicago craft beer fans will come together to celebrate their love of American beer culture and sample from an enormous selection of beer.

Located on the west side of downtown Chicago, Vertiport is a 30,000 sq ft helicopter hangar. That's right my friend, BeerHoptacular will take place inside a helicopter hanger.
