Private Events

Located in the South Loop neighborhood of Chicago, Moody Tongue Brewing Company may be found within walking distance of McCormick Place, numerous area hotels and a growing hospitality community. The Private Dining & Events Program at Moody Tongue showcases chef-driven beers, elevated service and a focused food menu from nine-time Michelin-starred recipient Executive Chef Jared Wentworth. The brewery's mid-century modern aesthetic and refined industrial design set the tone for a distinctive dining and event experience, while a professional onsite event team ensures attention to every detail.

Coordinating these details leading to a successful event can be stressful, and the event team at Moody Tongue brings focus, care and hospitality to you throughout the process. Our goal is to help create a unique and memorable event, tailored to your needs. Whether you would like to entertain a select group of clients or host a reception or private dining experience, we offer a number of possibilities within the brewery’s three venues.

All three venues offer flexibility, style and comfort which may be curated for a variety of engagements. Moody Tongue's award-winning beer and Chef Jared Wentworth's elevated dining offerings provide an undeniable backdrop to distinguish your next event.

    offers our most intimate experience. Leather booths and chairs, large blackened oak table tops and sophisticated tablewares combine to elevate the perception of a brewery dining experience. Brewmaster Jared Rouben's dream of marrying fine dining with exceptional beer pairings may now be experienced in private engagements with a 12-course tasting menu. Plated and family-style dining options are also available for seated dinners while an extensive banquet menu provides excellent options for reception style events.

    The Bar

    provides a comfortable backdrop for larger events. A vibrant fireplace lounge and library of historic brewing books anchors the room beneath the original industrial skylight. The central black marble bar focuses guests attention inward towards 18 gleaming draft towers. The room is open and flexible, without feeling too expansive. Dining options may be catered to either seated plated and family-style meals or standing reception-style affairs. Semi-private reservations are available in this venue upon request as well.
