Firkin Tapping Party

Dunlay’s on the Square is throwing a beer party for the ages on Friday, February 21st.  Beginning at 5:30 pm, beer-lovers are invited to an old school firkin beer tapping, where local brewery Two Brothers will break open an authentic firkin keg and pour uber fresh pints of a special Two Brothers French pressed coffee-infused Domaine DuPage – a Bière de Gardestylecountry ale.  To accompany the beer, 4-Star Restaurant Group corporate chef Kevin Ives has imagined an inspired short rib burger garnished with bacon, fennel, celery root coleslaw, and stone ground mustard.   Pints from the firkin alone will cost $7, short rib burgers $10, and a firkin pint and short rib burger combo for $15.
