If you enjoy freshly brewed beer, delicious food and the opportunity to socialize with professional athletes, then there’s only one place to be on Wednesday, Feb. 28: Hofbräuhaus Chicago in Rosemont’s Parkway Bank Park Entertainment District.
That’s where the Chicago Wolves are hosting the fourth annual Brews and Bites fundraiser, which offers the opportunity to spend quality time with Wolves players in a relaxed atmosphere while aiding Chicago Wolves Charities. Forwards Tomas Hyka, Wade Megan, T.J. Tynan and Scooter Vaughan and defenseman Chris Casto are slated to be a part of the festivities from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Hofbräuhaus.
“It’s an amazing venue and how it’s set up really allows for fans to mix and mingle with the guys,” said Wolves senior vice president of operations Courtney Mahoney. “There’s great food and great beer and it’s fun to see the players and the fans having an equally good time.”
Every attendee gets to visit with every player as they sample several of Hofbräuhaus’ finest beers, which are carefully paired with specific foods to maximize the authentic experience. As part of the evening, the Wolves are offering raffle prizes and the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind auction items. The lengthy list features customized six-packs representing the players that amplifies each one’s personality or hometown: There’s Casto’s Stillwater Brew, Hykaweiser Budvar, Megan’s Malts and Swaggy Clause Christmas Ale.
