Stout Barrel House To Host Deschutes Brewery Launch Dinner Tomorrow Night


More beer news is always good news, and the latest good news is the arrival on our shores of Deschutes Brewery, an Oregon-based brewery entering the Chicago market through a partnership with Wirtz Beverage IL, who are making a new push into the craft beer market through the formation of a dedicated Craft Beer team. There are a number of launch events this month all over the area, which you can see here, but the most interesting one to us is a four-course dinner with pairings tomorrow night at Stout Barrel House & Galley, which is going for the crazily reasonable price of $35 per person (plus tax & tip). Chef Chris Curren will whip up the menu, each paired with a different one of Deschutes' new-to-Chicago brews. See the menu below; for reservations call 312-475-1390 or go to OpenTable.
