Link’s Taproom Hosts 4th Annual Battle of Lake Michigan

May 18 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us at Link’s Taproom Thursday, May 18th for the 4th Annual Battle For Lake Michigan Keg Race, benifiting Alzheimer’s research! The battle pits Illinois vs. Michigan vs. Mindionsin (MN, IN, WI) in a heated battle to see who is the master of the greater Lake Michigan area!

Each state recieves 10 CO2 kegs and a firkin to start the race. The winner is the first state to run out of their kegs and firkin, and you can watch the up to the second progress of EVERY KEG in the race on our DigitalPour Menu Screens or at www.linkstaproom.com/beer-menu

The race is on for the duration of CCBW17, or until a winner and runner up are determined. The winning state will have a $500 donation made to its chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association on behalf of Links Taproom. Also at stake? A spot on the coveted Asian Carp Trophy along side the winner of 2014, 2015, and 2016, Illinois!
