CHICAGO (WLS) -- Friday Night Flights returns this week to Chicago for the summer season.

It's a chance to try some of the beers made by local craft breweries.

Friday night flights kicks off at Gallagher way on Friday.

The first of two sessions will take place from 5-7 p.m. and the second session will be from 8-10 p.m.

Tasting passes can be bought in advance for $25 and $30 at the door for 10 three-ounce beer samples.

"Chicago's craft breweries play a foundational role in building and sustaining robust economic activity in the neighborhoods and communities they call home," said Ray Stout, executive director for the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild. "During this period of ongoing recovery for our brewing community, events like Chicago Friday Night Flights are instrumental in helping our brewers reach new fans and increase brand recognition, both key to the continued growth and success of these small businesses."
