Public House's Upcoming Gluten Free Beer Dinner

Fancy dinners paired with alcohol are always fun, right? Unfortunately they aren't always plentiful for gluten free peeps like us, with the exception of Wildfire's Annual Gluten Free Wine Dinners or Woodchuck Cider's restaurant takeover for Gluten Free Cider Dinners. Now, thanks to Public House, one of the first ever gluten free BEER dinners is on the books for next month.


Public House is a gastropub in the River North area of Chicago that has a pretty extensive beer list. Over a hundred beers available and even taps at some tables and on the walls. There are also six cicerones (the equivalent of a sommelier) on staff.  Hi. They're obviously serious about beer. 

Public House has hosted beer dinners in the past, but never a gluten free one. Since they already have a gluten free menu and they're all about they beer, they thought why not? This event will mark their very first gluten free beer dinner.

The six-­course pairing menu from Chef David Blonsky & Chef Jeremy Tannehill was created to complement the hand-­picked gluten-free beers:


While most of the beers chosen are gluten free, some are gluten-removed which some gluten free or celiac diners might be wary of. Public House will gladly substitute one of the other gluten free beers on the menu for those who ask.  Public House also has a high level of preventing cross-contamination in their kitchen, using separate food prep surfaces and separate utensils, along with following their gluten free kitchen guidelines.

The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. on September 18th and is $35 (not including tax and gratuity) per person. Tickets are limited and are available in advance at publichousechicago.com/glutenfreebeerdinner. I already bought my ticket, so I hope to see you there!
