Church Street Brewing Company’s Holiday Art Market returns Dec. 16-17

Church Street Brewing Company, in collaboration with the Streetz Artz Alliance, proudly announces the much-anticipated return of the Holiday Art Market, set to take place at its Itasca location from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 16-17.

This unique event promises an unparalleled experience, boasting a carefully curated selection of over two dozen local artists showcasing an eclectic mix of high-quality handmade creations. From captivating artwork to one-of-a-kind crafts, patrons will have the opportunity to explore and support a diverse array of talents while indulging in the holiday spirit.

“The Holiday Art Market is a celebration of creativity, community, and craftsmanship,” says John Streetz, organizer of the Streetz Artz Alliance. “We’ve handpicked each artist to ensure a wide variety of exceptional handmade items that resonate with our patrons.” In addition, there will be a different mix of artists both days.

Amanda Steinbraker, social media and marketing manager for Church Street Brewing Company, shares, “We’re excited about our diverse beer offerings. While our Advent Calendars are sold out, we’re offering mix-and-match 4-packs or cases. Our new barrel-aged selections include Russian Rhapsody Imperial Stouts in four different varieties—Scotch, rye, Amburana, and bourbon barrel. My favorite is the Holy Moly Milk Stout aged in Port Barrels.” Additionally, the brewery is featuring a Maple Wheat Wine, Hefeweizen, five ales, five sours, three IPAs, seven Lagers, and Seltzers with craft cocktails and mocktails.

Attendees can immerse themselves in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere at Church Street Brewing Company. With an assortment of beer styles, non-alcoholic options, and a delectable menu offering shareable items, sandwiches, pizzas, and salads, the brewery invites guests to sip, savor, and shop to their heart’s content.

Santa will be making a special appearance from noon to 4 p.m. both days and there will be live music by Johnny Don’t on Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m.

Adding to the enchantment, Ten Cups Tarot & Creations will offer tarot readings and showcase their latest publication, catering to enthusiasts and those seeking unique holiday gifts.

“Kiki’s Vintage and Glass will be at the event! Showcasing new stained glass designs and gifts! Come by for a righteously good time with friends, family, and supporting local artisans!” said Kiki Harrison, owner of Kiki’s Vintage and Glass.

The event is open to all ages and free to attend, embodying a spirit of generosity by not charging a cover, encouraging support directly to the artists and the brewery.
