St. Feuillien Brewery in Le Roeulx, Belgium is world-renowned for producing some of the best Abbey-style Belgian beers for 141 years. Fourth-generation owner Dominique Friart will be in Chicago this week and the Trencherman and Fountainhead are hosting her.

Tomorrow Tuesday, November 11, Trencherman (2039 W. North Ave.) is serving up a dinner paired with five of St. Feuillien's beers, including their critically-acclaimed saison paired with chicken-fat roasted carrots, apricots, and smoked fried chicken. While eating and drinking, Friart will discuss the history and future of the brewery. Tickets are $75 a person. View the full menu and purchase tickets at Brown Paper Tickets.

On Nov. 12, Friart will be at Fountainhead (1970 W. Montrose Ave.) starting at 7 p.m., where six St. Feuillien beers will be available on draft:

Belgian Coast IPA
Brune Reserve
Biere de L’Amite

And bottles of St. Feuillien Grand Cru will be available. No tickets are needed, just show up and grab a beer. Beer prices will range from $7-$10 and there will be St. Feuillien -inspired food specials.
