Return Of Cleetus II. A Celebration Of Collaboration At Fountainhead
November 20, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Fountainhead, a well-known craft beer and whisk(e)y bar in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood focusing on local and seasonal food, is excited to raise a glass to Cleetus for the second annual Return of Cleetus collaboration event. All of the gastropub’s tap handles will be dedicated to the collaborative brewing efforts of executive chef Cleetus Friedman for a Cleetus Tap Takeover!
For the last three years, Chef Cleetus has been partnering with Midwest breweries from Michigan to the Windy City. With the help of these amazing brewers, Chef Cleetus has created some amazing, one-of-a-kind beers and he is excited to celebrate these breweries which have opened their doors (and fermentation tanks) to share in the creation of some great brews. This celebration is the perfect time to taste all of these amazing collaborations in one place and learn about the inspiration behind the masterpieces directly from Cleetus & some of the collaboration brewers in attendance.
Chef Friedman’s signature beer-inspired dishes will be on special during the event including charm city crab cakes and fried chicken & whiskey bacon waffles with rosemary syrup. Chef Cleetus will also provide menu pairing suggestions with the featured beers from Fountainhead’s regular menu. Beer prices will range from $6-11 and nips & pints and Cleetus flights will also be available for purchase.
