If you are celebrating Hanukkah or even if you aren't it's a great time to try the recent spate of Hanukkah-themed beers and doughnuts. Fountainhead (1970 West Montrose Avenue.) is serving Eight Beery Nights of different variations of Dr. Dreidel’s Imperial Chanukah Porter, a collaboration between Chef Cleetus Friedman and Begyle Brewing.
Dr. Dreidel’s Imperial Chanukah Porter with...
December 16: The Base Beer
December 17: Coffee Bean
December 18: Cayenne Pepper
December 19: Chai
December 20: Malted Milk
December 21: Marshmallow, Graham Cracker, Chocolate
December 22: Vanilla Bean & Cinnamon
December 23: Nitro
There will also be plenty of traditional Hanukkah dishes like latkes to eat.
If that's not enough Hanukkah beer for you, Shmaltz Brewing is releasing two Hanukkah beers: Pass The Beer, a dark ale brewed with 8 malts, 8 hops, and 8% ABV and Jewbelation, a high proof (12.8 percent!) brew 18 made with 18 malts, 18 hops. You can taste it and some of their other beers at a tap takeover hosted by World of Beer (1601 Sherman Ave, Evanston) Friday, Dec. 19 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
For sweet treats, might as well pair all that beer with Hanukkah-themed doughnuts. Glazed and Infused (multiple locations) is offering a cranberry ginger ale jam doughnut inspired by the traditional Hanukkah doughnuts, sufganiyot. Sweet Cakes Bakery (1223 N. Milwaukee Ave.) will offer a different treat every day for the holiday starting with apple cider doughnuts today.
