Sing the Oskar Blues on Thursday

We hope you’ve spent the past few days cleansing your palates, because we’re opening up about some cool happenings we’ve got planned for Chicago Craft Beer Week (May 16-26).

This Thursday, we’re joining forces with The Rocking Horse to give beer lovers two locations to taste and appreciate some of the finest suds available from Oskar Blues, plus score sweet brewery swag. 

Feel like you just might want to appreciate these beers a little too much? We got you. We’ll be running a shuttle between Scofflaw and The Rocking Horse from 6pm-9pm, so you can take advantage of all the beer bounty available.

The Oskar Blues beersperience starts at 5pm, right when we open, so make sure you bring your photo ID to work, folks. Entry is free (but you need to make a purchase to ride the shuttle).

Oh yeah, and the beers:

On Tap: G'Knight Imperial Red and Chaka (one of two barrels making its way to Chicago!)
In Cans: Dale's Pale Ale Stovepipes (19.2oz!)

Rocking Horse
On Tap: Yella Pils, Gubna IPA and Oak Aged Smidy
In Cans: Dale's Pale Ale Stovepipes (19.2oz!)

Allagash Beer Brunch!

Have you always dreamed of having brunch at Scofflaw? Perhaps you remember eating Chef Mickey’s brunch specialties back when he was at Longman & Eagle, or maybe you just imagine how beautiful the bar might look in the morning (alright, afternoon) light. Either way, here’s your chance: At 1pm on Saturday, May 25th, we’re hosting a beer brunch with Allagash Brewing Company in honor of Chicago Craft Beer Week.

Our resident beer geek, Kris Nagy, has been a longtime fan of the Portland, Maine, brewery because of their top-notch classic Belgian-style brews. “I don’t like assholes. I try to stay away from them,” Kris says. “Their stuff is incredible, and they’re really cool people.”

Some cool things about this brunch:
  • Curieux, the Belgian-style triple brew that’s aged in bourbon barrels, is Kris’s favorite Allagash beer.
  • Scofflaw is getting a Methusalem of the Tripel Ale. (That’s a 6 liter bottle for anyone not fluent in beer.)
  • The first beer Allagash has ever done in foudres (big oak tanks), is called FV 13, and only two barrels were sent to Chicago. Check out who got just enough to pair with the fourth course of their beer brunch... (We did).
  • A representative from Allagash will be there, so you can ask them what it’s like to live in Maine. (They’ll probably be like, “It’s wicked cool, ay-yuh!”)

As you know, Scofflaw doesn’t usually do brunch, and because we only have 20 seats at this event, your ticket inherently comes with some bragging rights. We’ll open to the public at 5pm that evening.

Realize your Scofflaw brunch dream for only $75 per person (excluding gratuity). Each ticket includes brunch and a copy of Allagash: The Cookbook - signed by Rob Tod, the founder of Allagash. If you’re not already running over to Scofflaw to purchase your tickets at the bar, check out the menu above. Or if you’re stuck at your desk, shoot an email to Kris Nagy (kris@scofflawchicago.com) and reserve your ticket electronically.
