Chicago Summer Events: Lagunitas Brewing + Great American Cheese Collection Tasting Event to Benefit SitStayRead Literacy Organization

Beer & Cheese: A Love Story is a curated beer & cheese tasting event featuring five Lagunitas ales and five extraordinary cheese selections from Great American Cheese Collection. Great American’s own cheesemaster Giles Schnierle will be on-site explaining how to make taste combinations that will work best for your palette…You won’t want to miss this!

As though eating cheese (Woof! Yes, please!) with perfectly paired brews wasn’t already the coolest-sounding way to spend a summer night, it gets even better. Proceeds for the event go to SitStayRead, a non-profit that pairs dogs with struggling readers in helping to develop important early literacy skills. To find out more about SitStayRead, visit their website or check out WGN TV’s recent firsthand coverage of the organization’s in-classroom initiatives.

OK, so here’s the plan:

  1. Tell your dog you have a rare evening work meeting as to avoid inciting cheese-eating envy
  2. Schedule an OUG! visit to keep his mind and four legs occupied while you’re away
  3. Come home talking about TPS reports and fax machines until you both fall asleep

No, wait, that’s not gonna work because your dog will somehow as though telepathically know you’ve eaten delicious cheese without him.

I notice you have cheese

New plan:

  1. Tell your dog all about the great cause you’re supporting
  2. Schedule an OUG! visit to keep his mind and four legs occupied while you’re away
  3. Eat some awesome cheese & drink tasty brews
  4. Come home and assure him he didn’t miss any fun, that the cheese was neither all that nor a bag of chips (although, come on, who are you kidding? It’s cheese we’re talking about here!)

Event Details:

Monday, June 30
6:30pm – 8:00pm

    I’m a pretty big cheese fan, and a beer and cheese tasting event sounds like an absolute dream situation! Also wanted to say thanks for the tips on how to avoid inciting some cheese envy, our furry friends can get pretty crazy when there’s cheese on the line.

    You’re right, Stephen, when there’s cheese on the line, anything could happen! You’ll definitely want to take preventative action and manage the flow of cheese information to your furry friend from the get-go. Hope you can check out that event, & let us know if you attend! 🙂
