SXU Beer and Wine Reception - A Great Success! 

On Tuesday, November 18, alumni and friends gathered at Horse Thief Hollow Brewing Company (Chicago, IL) for an evening to remember during the SXU Beer and Wine Reception. Guests were welcomed by the warm, modern atmosphere of the south side brewery and the hospitality of members of the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations. 

Upon arrival, guests were able to mingle and visit with old friends and make new acquaintances. Guests were then invited to sit as the beer and wine pairing began. As the program started, Horse Thief Hollow Brewing Company owner, Neil Byers, welcomed everyone and informed attendees on the four-course beer, wine and food pairing that was to follow. Guests were delighted to hear all about how the particular brew matched/complimented the food courses. The beer samples ranged from crisp with citrus accents paired with seafood to deep and peppery which complimented locally raised beef. The evening concluded with a deep Red Zinfandel paired with a delicious fudge brownie with caramel sauce, ice cream and bacon!
