The Hilarity of the Half Acre Brewery Tour (Guide)

Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring


Taking a quick break from this week’s 5 Days, 5 Ways challenge to share this story with you.

Last month a bunch of my Chicago Running Blogger friends and I  met up for a quick run before drinking ourselves silly at the Half Acre Brewery tour. I didn’t do a write-up on my running blog but if you’re curious, there are quite a few write-ups from my friends who didn’t fall asleep on the couch when they got home after all that beer.

The highlight (and the reason I’m writing this post) of the tour was drinking three pints of beer in about an hour after very little food.  We got a little giddy and the group decided that we loved our tour guide’s hipster outfit pictured above and wanted to recreate it.  “Host a link-up, Erin!” They said.  So here we are.



Chambray shirt – Old Navy (similar)| Lace shirt – The Limited (similar) | Pants – The Limited (similar) | Shoes – Anne Klein | Belt – The Limited (similar)| Necklaces – gift & post-race swag

Of course, I went with an office-appropriate version so it’s more preppy than hipster. But what about my blogger buddies?  Check out their interpretations below.

      My current “running blog” is mostly just me posting a few times a month about what fun thing I’ve found fitness-wise. My old running blog ( was where I actually blogged all my runs and races.

    I like your office appropriate interpretation! Thanks for hosting this, it’s fun seeing everyone’s outfits. But also, we all need to run and drink again sometime soon 🙂

      I’m so behind on blogs but I hope to read them all soon!

      Also, I scheduled a Tweet for this evening that tags the brewery. Can’t wait to see if they respond…

          Yeah, but I’ve been back since and they didn’t seem to notice. I’ll just avoid wearing running clothes or a chambray shirt and I should be okay.

    Dude. Best. Wardrobe. Challenge. EVER.

    That is just awesome that you all re-wore the guide’s outfit, you all have such a great snese of humor! (What a fun group to go to brewery with, it sounds like you all had a ton of laughs and fun.)
