Hot Doug's Returns to Chicago for 1 Weekend in June With ‘Dog Dayz of Summer'

Hot Doug's will be back for one weekend only this summer in the form of a beer and music festival.

The owner of the ever-popular hot dog shop, Doug Sohn, teamed up with Goose Island Beer Company again this year to present the 2nd annual “Dog Dayz of Summer” being held on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25.

For $74.84, ticket holders will get an exclusive and unlimited tasting of the “best hits from Hot Doug’s” paired with beer and live music. Cost of admission includes eating as many sausages as your heart desires. There will be 10 dog varieties, but the event urges festival-goers to "eat freely."

For attendees over 21, tickets include three regular beer tickets plus a special token for a specialty tapping of a rare Goose Island beer (while supplies last).

The event will be hosted at Goose Island Barrel Warehouse at 605 N Sacramento. There are three separate sessions to choose from for the festival weekend: Friday 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday 12 to 3 p.m. or Saturday 5 to 8 p.m.

Spots are limited and can be purchased by visiting, with 10 percent of proceeds benefiting the Intonation Music Workshop.

Musical Lineup:

Friday, June 24, 6:00 PM Session - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 

Saturday, June 25, Noon Session - The Waco Brothers 

Saturday, June 25, 5:00 PM Session - The Tossers
