Close Encounters: Sipping a Glass of 1908 Vienna

  • Cliff Dwellers 200 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

Save your dietary cheat day for this extravagance, our glimpse into Schoenberg’s Vienna by way of your gullet. If you’re on the up-and-up with Chicago craft breweries, you’ve read the ink on Illuminated Brew Works. We’ll all be tucking into a custom draft created especially for this event, resurrecting an early 190Os Viennese recipe from the same era as Schoenberg’s second quartet...all with the Cliff Dwellers' magnificent downtown and Lake Michigan views as our backdrop.

-selections from-
Arnold Schoenberg – String Quartet No. 2 (featuring world-class soprano Kiera Duffy)
Webern’s – Langsamer Satz
Béla Bartók – String Quartet No. 1

We knew that we'd found our local brewery of choice when we discovered that Illuminated makes a Twin Peaks-themed stout called "The Black Lodge."
