Howell's and Hood Olympics-Inspired Beer Flight

Olympics-inspired beer flight from Howell’s and Hood


Obsessed with the Olympics yet? We are. (Although, we still need someone to explain ‘curling’ to us.)

Turn your TV-watching time into Sochi social power hour at one of these Chicago spots that’ll help you cheer Team USA to victory morning, noon and night.



Old Town Social

Prepare for a day of cheering on Team USA with the breakfast of champions special. This loaded breakfast includes two eggs, two pancakes, two turkey sausage patties, two slices of house-smoked bacon, hash brown casserole and toast for $13. (Weekends only.) Power up!



Sidebar Grille

Get into the global spirit by enjoying a different themed burger each weekday, including options like the Jamaica burger (jerk turkey burger with mango and red onions) and the Italy burger (beef burger with mozzarella, basil and roasted tomato sauce), served with your choice of side.



American Junkie

Show your patriotic side with red, white and blue snow cones for $10. Featuring Skyy Vodka, the Team USA-inspired cones are pina colada, cherry and blue raspberry flavored. (Available during hockey games only.)



Howell’s and Hood

Give even more meaning to the Olympic rings with Howell’s and Hood’s Olympics-inspired beer flight that — you guessed it — includes five beers from around the world for only $18. Enjoy 6-ounce pours of Bourgogne Des Flanders (Belgium), Meantime IPA (United Kingdom), Krombacher Dark (Germany), Vandermill Blue Gold (USA), and La Fin Du Monde (Canada).



The Boundary

Toast to your favorite Olympic athletes with special athlete-inspired cocktails, including the Kaner-ade (for Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane) featuring Buffalo Trace Bourbon, lemonade and raspberry puree and the Flying Tomato (for Shawn White), which is a bacon-infused Smirnoff vodka Bloody Mary.
