Chicago’s Forbidden Root
Wishing for Summer Botanic Beer Dinner
Chef Dan Weiland
Inspired by their love of barley, water, hops and yeast, Chicago’s Forbidden Root, a botanic brewery, is simply : inspired by nature. Bark, stems, flowers, herbs, spices, leaves, roots, and other foraged flavors have long been a part of beer.
While they don’t claim to have invented botanic beer, we are obsessing on how they have embraced it. All the while believing in the magic of harnessing nature.
Join executive Chef Dan Weiland (formerly of Trenchermen, Blackbird and Avec) on May 5th and 6th inside frame as he brings us a dinner and beer pairing, with a menu that’s American rustic.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
