Things are about to heat up at The Aviary. The Chicago restaurant and artisanal cocktail bar will not only debut its very own porter next month but it is offering diners a taste of their first beer collaboration with Evil Twin, a Danish brewery considered the best in Europe by Rate Beer.
Next Tuesday, a few lucky diners will get to enjoy a tasting series of 10 beers brewed for The Aviary by the Evil Twin team. Each beer will be served along with food that compliments the brew. ''The tasting is small pours so nobody has to crawl out the door,'' sous chef Micah Melton announced on Facebook.
So far, we know the beers are Belgian Ales that have been aged in a series of different barrels. Beer Advocate reports that Aviary Six and Aviary Eight were aged in Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky barrel and a Cognac barrel, respectively. Sounds incredibly interesting!
Melton said his personal favorite is beer Aviary Nine. He said the restaurant will serve the collaboration beers for as long as they last. ''[We] don't know how fast they'll sell out,'' he told Facebook fans.
