What we're about

Are you a nerdy Chicagoan who loves beer and board games? Us too! Come join us for regular boozy sessions at bars and breweries across the city as we get our game on.

Our usual events are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at Navigator Taproom in Logan Square. We also try to add in a weekend event once a month at a different brewery to accommodate those who can't make our usual time. At B&BG events, we always bring a sizable amount of games from our own collections, but feel free to bring that game you've been dying to play!

In addition to regular get togethers, we're also working on arranging testing and launch events for new games, bulk orders and other specials from gaming retailers and websites, and much more.

BOARD GAME DESIGNERS! If you are getting ready to launch a game on Kickstarter, please reach out to our admins about demos! We are happy to preview your game at our events. We get to offer our members exclusive sneak peeks, you get a shot to earn more backers, it's a win-win! If you are a Chicago-based designer, please reach out to us as well. We're trying to build a community of game players and creators in the city, and we have some ideas about future events.

Beers & Board Games Roadshow: Motor Row Brewing

Motor Row Brewing

Come play some games, drink some beers and meet your new best friends. Beer & Board Games Chicago is a regular get-together to celebrate the holy trinity of hops, cardboard & good times. In addition to meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at Navigator Taproom in Logan Square, we also meet once a month at a different brewery in Chicago to showcase how the awesome efforts of our city's brewing community - many of which also happen to be a great spot for gaming! This month, we'll be visiting Motor Row Brewing on the Near South Side. Priding themselves on their innovative brews, they've taken on the identity of their location, a former hub for both Chicago's automotive industry and its blues scene. It's a blue collar ethic that puts community front and center, and we are all here for it. BYO food, and games if you like (we'll have plenty to choose from, but feel free to add anything you're itching to play).
