Cupid’s Countdown #3 | A Valentine Toast from Wild Onion Brewery with a BBQ Built for Two

Cupid’s Countdown #3 | A Valentine Toast from Wild Onion Brewery with a BBQ Built for Two

For Number 3 on his Countdown to Valentine’s Day in Barrington, Cupid found a spot at the bar next to Wild Onion Brewery Founder & CEO Mike Kaniz to find out what his plans are for Valentine’s Day. Mike says he’s been working hard to keep his beer brewing crew in good spirits this past year. They’ve cooked up a special Valentine’s Day menu to celebrate and are ready to keep the beer flowing all weekend long. Before Cupid left, Mike made a toast to great beer, close friends and good times ahead in Barrington! 🍻

Now that Illinois has relaxed some of its Covid-19 restrictions, The Wild Onion is happy to be safely easing back to business as ‘almost’ usual and they couldn’t be more excited to welcome us back through their doors. They’ve been busy preparing their handcrafted chocolate dipped strawberries as just one course from their special Valentine’s Day Weekend Menu that offers a taste of just about everything your beer-lover’s heart desires! Keep in mind they offer dine-in service, carry out and delivery so there’s something for everyone.

Wild Onion Valentine’s Day Special Menu

BBQ for Two
Friday night through Sunday, February 14th, 2021

  • 2 BBQ pulled pork sliders
  • 4 pieces of brisket
  • 1/2 slab of ribs
  • 2 sides (fries, coleslaw, mac & cheese or salad)
  • 4 chocolate covered strawberries
  • 4 pints of standard craft beer or glasses of house wine, dine-in $69
  • Non-Alcoholic Drinks or Carryout – $59

While you’re there, be sure to pick up one of Wild Onion’s new Nordic hoodies! Here, Founder & CEO, Mike Kainz is modeling what would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for the beer lovers in your life!

This guy is a true craft beer pioneer….brewing his first batch of Paddy Pale Ale in his parent’s garage in 1995. 🤯 Twenty-six years later, he’s still making sure the beer is flowing so no one goes thirsty. Mostly, he’s fixing moving parts, because, in their words, “Sh*t’s always breaking down in a brewery.” Let’s give it up for this beer visionary, engineer & mechanic, who is always willing to roll up his sleeves to get the job done (as long as there’s a cold one waiting for him at the end of the day).

Happy International Women’s Day to all women who live with, or care for someone with, mental illness. According to NAMI, “1 in 8 women experiences depression in their lifetime; twice the rate as men, regardless of race or ethnic background.” Furthermore, “some experiences are unique to women, including post-partum changes, infertility, and hormonal fluctuations throughout their lives." Access to mental health care is critically important, as shown during COVID-19, as well as the equality of access to it.
