Join us as we celebrate saisons with our Saisonathon event during Illinois Craft Beer Week!
With last year’s Saisonathon being an unbridled success (featuring an appearance by Joe Lo Truglio!), we decided to bring it back again this year better than ever! While still focused primarily on Chicago-area crafted saisons, we’ve expanded it a bit to include other saisons made in the United States.
Saisonathon will be happening Monday, May 21, 2018 at Pub Royale beginning at 5 PM. All types of saisons will be on tap, from those fruited, to those barrel-aged, to just standard saisons. We’ll be taking over at least 12 of Pub Royale’s 24 taps with saisons, so there’s no excuse for saison palate fatigue! And while you’re there, enjoy some paneer and curry as well, as it pairs well with this versatile style.
Scheduled to participate:
Corridor Brewery and Provisions – Jam Jam Bigelow (blackberry saison)
Temperance Beer Co. – Birdsong (tequila barrel-aged saison with cucumbers)
Afterthought Brewing – Saison Avec: Lime & Yuzu
Whiner Beer Co. – Sasha Fontaine (barrel-aged raspberry wild saison)
