Chicago's Week in Craft Beer, March 1-4

Chicago's Week in Craft Beer, March 1-4
The latest Seipp "Retro-brew"

Flash! The chicagonow.com site finally upgraded to WordPress’ Gutenberg system. Bad News: I can no longer link to my calendar articles through an <iframe> tag to my Google Calendar. Until I get this issue settled, I’ve pasted in “hard” copy of my current GCal listings, which I may or may not be able to update as I try to figure this out.

No bad news to report this week. Instead, we finally have a few events on a Monday, a new retro-beer from Seipp Brewing, and Two Brothers reopens its Warrenville taproom.

There are 3 things you need to know about the staff at Gillerson’s:
First, we love each other and have one helluva time at work.
Secondly, we are fiercely collaborative.
Thirdly, we f*cking love Foo Fighters.
So when we found out Riverlands Brewing Co. released a Foo tribute beer called Colours & Shapes (paying homage to the Foo album, The Colour and the Shape) we decided to dedicate a week to Foo & Riverlands and give you…
Taylor Hawkins drum roll please…
Foo & Brew!
From March 3 – March 6, we will have Riverlands Colours & Shapes and the “Lil Rebel Dave” burger available.
Since Dave Grohl loves to spend quality time with his smokers (fun fact, he has his own BBQ company called @backbeatbbq and he has some pretty serious #foodporn on that account ) we’re going to take our famous Rebel Duck burger and make it a Lil Rebel Dave by adding @chefgabrielsmith scratch-made habanero BBQ sauce for $10.
(4 oz. steak patty topped with pork shoulder, bacon, white cheddar, fried onion strings & habanero grubby bbq with your choice of fries or tots)
Anyone who purchases a Colours & Shapes beer or a Lil Rebel Dave burger will also be entered to win a @foofighters Medicine At Midnight Merch Bundle!
Winner will be able to select their size t-shirt and it will be shipped directly to their house.
Merch bundle includes:
Medicine at Midnight Embroidered black foldover beanie.
Stacked Eye Medicine at Midnight Raglan
Medicine at Midnight Button / Sticker Pack
Price value: $45
(please note, size small shirt is no longer available)
Oh, and yes, if you purchase a Colours & Shapes beer AND a Lil Rebel Dave, you will receive TWO raffle ticket entries.
This event/contest is available for dine-in, carryout & delivery orders.
If you purchase for dine-in or carryout, you will receive an entry slip to fill out.
If you purchase for delivery, we will fill out a slip for you and add it to the big ol’ raffle ticket fishbowl that once was a home for a fish named Marvin.
