A Very Beer-y Brunch

Hometown heroes, Spiteful Brewing, are stopping by for brunch this Saturday. And they’re too polite to arrive empty handed. We’re tapping their Absinthe Barrel-Aged Klutzy Buffoon Saison with Cherries. It’s the perfect brunch companion at 5.8%! Plus, the cherry aspect put this brew firmly in the fruit juice category of a balanced breakfast.

You’re an educated drinker, so your first question is: Yes, but in which absinthe barrel did they age this delightful concoction? Spiteful Brewing is interested in only the finest, so they sourced barrels from Letherbee Distillers, a supremely cool Chicago spirits company that’s always had a home behind our bar and in many of our cocktails.

We’re mixing up a special Letherbee cocktail, featuring two of their spirits in honor of this momentous partnership: Letherbee Gin, Cherry Heering, Carpano Bianco Vermouth, Angostura Bitters, Letherbee Aged Absinthe.

With a brunch party like this, there’s no such thing as one and done. So, we’re whipping up an extra special brunch special to prolong your drinking experience: Chicken Bouillabaisse, with PEI Mussels, Littleneck Clams, Grilled Baguette, Housemade Rouille.

We start beer brunching at noon on Saturday, December 6th!
