Chicago Craft Beer Week Dinner
Join us on Wednesday, May 25th, 2016, as we showcase three globally respected breweries - Boulevard, Ommegang and Duvel - alongside elevated food from Chef Brett Neubauer. This special dining event features six food courses, each expertly paired with the Belgian-influenced beers.
The beer dinner includes a welcome happy hour to chat with the chef and beer reps, and to get to know your fellow beer-lovers. We then move into the six-course menu (including dessert), each paired with some rare and potent brews from the breweries. Jim DeBolt, the Duvel area representative for the Midwest, will be sharing his extensive knowledge of beer and helping host the dinner.
The event is priced at $60 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity. Make a phone reservation at 312-262-5310.
