The Power of the (Cider) Press at Fountainhead

February 5, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - February 6, 2015 @ 12:00 am

Fountainhead and forthcoming The Northman cider bar present The Power of the Press…the apple press that is! Join the minds behind the well-known craft beer bar and Chicago’s first-ever cider bar as they explore and celebrate ciders from throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Spain and France. Beverages made with all sorts of pressed apples from ciders to their spirited relatives will be offered on draft and in bottles, plus some cider cocktails from Fountainhead’s resident mixologist Chris Kafcas. Chef Cleetus and crew will be serving up some outstanding cider-inspired dishes.

A very rare cider has been added to the line-up: hand pulled on the beer engine, Aspall Temple Moon! Fountainhead is amongst the first to pour this cider in this fashion and is one of only two bars in the city to receive this rare and delicious Aspall cyder.
