You’ve got to hand it to Chicago – when it comes to beer, they’re not only smart, they’re tenacious. John Ewald Siebel started the Siebel Institute of Technology in 1868, to teach brewers the ins & outs of brewing. When Prohibition hit, the institute taught baking to survive, and then went right back to brewing when it was repealed. In today’s Chicago, the explosion of good food & great beer means we wouldn’t miss the chance to return to the city for the third year of The Mash. Check out the events below, then get your tickets.
DIY Dinner Party with Athenos: Chef Andrew Gerson teaches you how to create a four course dinner that’s party-ready. Once you’ve cooked your meal, sit down to feast & learn how to pair beer with food. Tickets: $30
State of Craft Beer with First We Feast: Brooklyn Brewery co-founder talks with local craft beer luminaries from Solemn Oath Brewing, Aquanaut Brewing, & All About Beer about the present & future of craft beer. Tickets: $6
Secret Supper with Dinner Lab: We can’t tell you the location (it’s secret), but we can tell you these multi-course beer dinners have previously been held in nuclear reactors, parade float warehouses, and children’s museums. Tickets: on sale soon.
Good Beer Hunting with Garrett Oliver & Michael Kiser: Garrett Oliver makes his long-awaited return to Chicago to do a live podcast recording with Good Beer Hunting, followed by an old-fashioned cookout. Tickets are limited, details here.
