Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with this Groupon.

At Beer Fest, representatives from craft-beer breweries such as Anchor, New Belgium, Sam Adams, Goose Island, Dogfish Head, and Leinenkugel host tastings. Groupon purchasers receive the Silver package, which includes entrance, a keepsake tasting glass, the chance to taste beers and talk with brewers, and access to raffles and giveaways.
Elgin Public House’s menu includes a Bleu Horse burger with horseradish ($9.95), a pulled-pork sandwich ($8.50), an 8-ounce hand-cut rib-eye steak ($18), and a pub-beer brat ($7.50). In addition, the value of this Groupon can be put toward the Friday fish-fry and dinner tastings.
Elgin Public House
Visitors to the Elgin Public House step into a cozy interior reinforced by exposed-brick walls. A culinary crew revives weary locals with a menu of hearty pub eats and a beer selection of 87 varieties imported from across Europe and the United States. Chefs use certified-Angus beef for burgers, stuff pork chops full of bleu cheese cornbread and mango chutney, and hand-cut steaks in-house after aging them a minimum of two weeks to ensure optimal flavor and prevent them from prank-calling patrons. A calendar of weekly events keeps things lively with regular offerings such as Wednesday-night trivia, Friday-night fish fries, and daily specials. One Tuesday each month, limited-seating dinner-pairing events offer six-course meals, with each course accompanied by an alcoholic beverage, such as red wine or tequila.
