Hops for Humanity - Winter 2019 Event


Doc's Victory Pub

Doc's Victory Pub opened in the fall of 2017,  at the site of the former Doc Ryan's, with new ownership completing a restoration and renovation of the interior, modeling a new facade with open windows after Temple Pub in Dublin. Doc's Victory Pub features pub-grub favorites, late night pizza, Sunday brunch, and traditional Irish fare.


Alter Brewing Company

Beer for our event will be provided by Alter Brewing. The Alter Brewing vision began way back in 1992 when the first batch of home brew was made in a ceramic coated brew pot on the stove top of a Chicago north side city apartment. Fast forward.

The year was 2013.  Three men with a passion for beer came together and began laying the foundations for a new brewery.  Then in 2015, building upon a passionate love for the beer industry and its people, as well as formal brewing education at the Siebel Institute, BJCP Certification, Cicerone CBS and on the job training at breweries across the country, Alter Brewing Company was born.

Our next event will occur on Monday October 29th, 2018, at 6:30 pm and will be hosted by Lagunitas Brewing Company in Chicago.  LAGUNITAS CHICAGO is located at 2607 W. 17th St. Chicago, Ill. 60608. To celebrate Hops for Humanity’s 16th event and four tremendous years of helping so many deserving charities, we want to kick-off a special event!!! 

Our host for this event, Lagunitas Brewing Company, is providing us with a fantastic event space that will hold up to 300 people!  To keep Hops for Humanity growing, all 1st time attendees (defined as somebody who has never been to a Hops for Humanity event), will have the opportunity to attend the event for FREE (and also enjoy some great beer)!  Hops members who have not been to an event in over one year are also invited to attend the event for FREE and see how we have grown.  

This event will be slightly different from the past.  Lagunitas provides us with the space, but our members and guests must purchase the beer.  A pint is $6.00, but Lagunitas we donate $5.44 of each pint sold back to Hops.  The cost for members to attend has also been reduced to only $85.00.

Lastly, you will also have the option of taking a bus to and from the event!  The cost for the bus is only $20.00 person, but we are limited on space, so the first 54 people to select the “Bus Option” will have a reserved seat. The bus will leave from Elmhurst (location TBD) at 5:00 pm, and depart from Lagunitas back to Elmhurst at 8:30 pm.

This is a phenomenal opportunity to invite family, friends, neighbors and coworkers for FREE. Don’t forget about your friends in the City, this would be an ideal event for them to attend!

Because of this great opportunity, we have changed up registration. There will be four options to choose from. There is the “free” guest option as well as guest option with bus trip for $20.00. The Committed Member donation is reduced to $85.00 to allow for beer purchases.  There is also the committed member plus bus option for $115.00. Note, for those registering for the bus option, payment must be received in advance, by October 20th, either through PayPal or  the receipt of your check.

Remember, if you selected to pay through PayPal, a convenience fee will be collected.

Let’s fill the space with 300 people, and show them what “Good Beer, Doing Good” looks like.  Food will be provided at the event through a gracious donation by Dietz & Watson! The Wheelbarrow of beer raffle will also return for this event!

 Doors open at 6:00 pm to check in and beer will be flowing.

There are multiple registrations options for this event...So please choose accordingly.
