We have amazing member events Birch Road Cellar. All events are personally curated by the founders and unique to Birch Road-ers. Below is a small taste of the complimentary events we’ve hosted for our members in the past. Don’t miss out on our upcoming events and schedule your visit to Birch Road Cellar.
MEZCAL VS SCOTCH SHOWDOWN:
Scotch whiskey is often praised for its long history and the labor of love and time required to create the perfect profile. But, what about mezcal? For 500 years Mexicans have been making mezcal from baked and fermented agave plants that grow anywhere from seven to 30 years before they are ready to be crushed and fermented. Experience the similarities and differences in both spirits with a curated collection of mezcals alongside a variety of single cask scotches bottled by the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society.
BUT FIRST, CHAMPAGNE:
The perfect start to any night, let’s toast with Champagne. Our resident wine expert has just returned from her trip to Champagne, France, and will introduce us to the champagnes of Laurent-Perrier. Don’t worry, there won’t be a slideshow with her vacation photos. This night will be about introducing you to the region and tasting some bubbly deliciousness!
GONE WITH THE GIN:
Gin is in and we’ve got nothing but the best for Birch Road-ers. Set aside all your misconceptions about gin and learn from FEW’s award-winning gin distiller about the different styles of gin. So if you don’t know the difference between an American Gin and a London Dry, join us and you will walk away with a new appreciation of this up-and-coming spirit.
A NIGHT IN CALISTOGA:
Get a taste of Calistoga and spend an evening with an impressive group of founders and winemakers from this popular Napa region.
These small production wineries, 2,000 cases per year or less, are making amazing wines that are not available in Chicago. Stop in and get this rare opportunity to experience some of Calistoga’s best without hopping on a plane!
DRINK & THINK TRIVIA NIGHT:
We already know Birch Road-ers are smart, but just how smart? Drink & Think on this night and test your knowledge at our quarterly Drink & Think Trivia Night. Enjoy all the fun that comes with a typical Trivia Night at a bar, minus the sticky floors and well drinks.
