This Saturday we're celebrating not one but TWO great collaborations between Illuminated Brew Work's Brian Buckman & Haywood Tavern's Chef Rodney Staton. And we're doing it with a side of canteloupe and calling it brunch.
This Saturday at the Haywood Tavern (2759 W Augusta) from 11am - 3pm we'll be tapping both of our collaborations with the Haywood - Barrel Aged Son of Toucan Sam (7.6% Belgian Bock Aged in Cabernet Barrels for 9 months) and Feefe in the Night (6% Schwartzbier) - along with Brainwash (7% Tart Farmhouse) and FNORD (7% WIT) and we'll be enjoying them alongside Haywood's killer brunch menu. This is a damn fine way to start your Saturday day drinking properly.

Now, with your base coat properly applied, you can head down to either CBS' Day of the Living Ales or The Chicago Beer Festival. Unfortunately, we had a bit of an accident with our cask for DotLA and wound up power-washing our brewery with it, so we won't have our cask conditioned Fnord with Honey & Amarillo this year. Bummertown. But you should still go and support this awesome and unique event!
And tickets are still available for the Chicago Beer Festival at Chicago's historic Field Museum. This is always a great event and a fine way to end the first chapter of this weekend's bender. Do it!
