Chicago Craft Beer Week 2014

There’s been a lot happening around here, but that doesn’t mean we’re not stoked to get in on some Chicago Craft Beer Week action! So, we’re tapping a keg of Founder’s Brewing Co’s elusive KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) on Saturday, May 17th!

We’re not saying you have to drink it at breakfast, but you should absolutely drink it while you brunch on Chef Mickey’s awesome menu.  Our beer dude, Kris Nagy, will be pouring some tates of other Founder’s hard to get brews, like Bolt Cutter, Doom and Sweet Repute.

Is it too soon to say we want to see you again next week for brunch? Well we do — and we think honesty is important in this relationship — so how do you like them apples? On Saturday, May 24th, we’ll be featuring all kinds of crazy (and some classic) ciders. There are some radical evolutions happening in the cider world, and we want to share the bounty with you. Featuring super cool cider makers like: Vandermill, Aspall, Anthem and Uncle John’s!

All the CCBW fun starts at noon each Saturday. And let’s be honest, when we open at noon on weekends,  the fun really lasts all night, so we’re not gonna put an end time on our dates.

Spring Cocktail Menu

This week’s forecast has two consecutive 70 degree days in the forecast — you'd almost believe it was May so we thought we’d let you get up close and personal with our newest cocktail menu.

And, yes, to answer your next question, each Spring sipper is patio approved.
