Moody Tongue Hosts Painting Class Aug 24

Moody Tongue, possibly the most artistic of all breweries and one defined by its “culinary brewing” style, invites you to tap into your own creativity. On August, 24, attendees can visit Moody’s Pilsen neighborhood tasting room from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM and engage in some “painting and pours.”

The Painting

Inspired by Green City Market, where Moody sources ingredients for its Farmer’s Market Series, Moody Tongue will ask attendees to create a one-of-a-kind still life masterpiece featuring vibrant and seasonal fruits and vegetables, guided by guest artist Maira Egan and class coordinator Annika Swenson. All you need to do is bring your enthusiasm; all the art materials including the canvases, paint, and brushes will be provided to you.

The Pour

While painting, Moody Tongue guests can sip on perennial beers created by brewmaster/founder Jared Rouben, such as Sliced Nectarine IPA or Peeled Grapefruit Pilsner. I mean, what better way to get the creative juices flowing than by sipping a great beer?

For those unfamiliar with Jared, he attended New York’s Culinary Institute of America and subsequently worked in Michelin-starred kitchens such as the Martini House in Napa, CA, and Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York City. After that gastronomical journey, he moved to Chicago to pursue a brewing career, hence the term “culinary brewing.” Moody’s tasting room provides one of the warmest, comfortable tasting rooms in Chicago.

Bring a book, drink more beer

If you have a used book laying around, be sure to bring it to the event. Not only will Moody Tongue collect them and donate them to nearby Open Books Pilsen — a good cause, indeed, but also that action will garner you an extra perennial beer.
