Drinking Up the Flag Beer Dinner
On Wednesday, March 4 Trenchermen is proud to host historian Liz Garibay to celebrate Chicago's 178th birthday! We are the culminating event in the five week Chicago Flag series. Liz and illustrator Phil Thompson of Capehorn Illustration collaborated on the series to honor the city's eating and drinking history through the iconic city symbol.
Chef Patrick Sheerin will prepare a Five Course dinner inspired by the five main elements of the Chicago Flag: Each of the four stars and the Blue and White stripes. Each course will be paired with a beverage that also represents the flag and has been a part of the story series.
You can expect pairings from local breweries and distilleries, including Metropolitan Brewing, Penrose Brewing, Koval Distillery, Three Floyds Brewing, Local Option Bierwerker and Pipeworks Brewing.
