The Rave, 2401 W. Wisconsin Ave., has opened The Rave Craft Beer Lounge just off the main lobby. The lounge features over 50 bottled local and national brands of beer, with a focus on Wisconsin and Illinois brewers.
The lounge hosts craft beer tasting events that will feature brand-new selections with a representative from the brewer to provide insight about the brewing process and answer any questions that guests may have. There’ll always be something new to taste, as products will rotate as new brands become available.
The new lounge will also have multiple flat-screen televisions showing the evening’s concert.
