Next month Go Bronzeville, a campaign to help Bronzeville residents take advantage of the many transportation choices in our city, is co-hosting our monthly reader meetup. This will likely be the start of a series of hangout sessions for Streetsblog Chicago readers and members of transportation advocacy groups and organizations in various parts of town.

The upcoming event takes place on Wednesday, October 5, 6-8 p.m. at Baderbrau, one of Chicago’s newest breweries, located at 25th and Wabash. Streetsblog’s meetups are always a great opportunity to hang out and network with folks who are passionate about sustainable transportation and livable streets. Here are the details:

Baderbrau is an 11-minute walk south from the Cermak-McCormick Place Green Line station. For a shorter walk, you can also access the brewery via several CTA bus routes. The nearest Divvy Station is at 26th and Indiana, by Mercy Hospital — from there it’s a 5-minute walk northwest to the taproom.

The brewery doesn’t serve food, but you’re welcome to bring your own.
