Moody Tongue Brewing Company
Private Dining & 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.
The Dining Room at Moody Tongue 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 either a 7- or 10-course tasting menu. Plated and family style dining options are available in this venue upon request as well.
The Bar at Moody Tongue offers 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.
The Brewery Floor at Moody Tongue is available for our largest engagements. Located immediately within Moody Tongue’s brewing facility and beneath an expansive skylight and original bowstring truss roof, the brewery has dedicated over 2,500 square feet to private reservations. Flanked by exposed brick walls and racks of whiskey and wine barrels, this venue enjoys a private entrance, coat check, restrooms and wedding suite. A dedicated kitchen will cater to groups with over 100 guests and a centrally located bar will feature exclusive Moody Tongue options only available on-site.
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.

Exceeded our expectations!
When we set out to plan our 75 person wedding, our priorities were to find a cool small venue with good food and booze. We reached out to Moody Tongue on a whim since we were big fans of their beer and the brewery, and Moody Tongue fit the bill for all three of our criteria. To top it off, they were one of the more reasonable venues we contacted. From our initial contact, the Moody Tongue team was super warm and accommodating. They listened to all of our wants and needs and were incredibly flexible on everything we asked for! MT handled all of the equipment rentals (we needed linens and extra tables and chairs) and day of setup. They executed the vision that I had even better than I could have hoped! We chose the Mexican menu they offered (from Pollo Express in Pilsen, yum!) and their famous chocolate cake and it got rave reviews from our guests. And of course the Perennial beers and City Winery wine options were top notch. They also opened the brewery to us to drop off all the decor a few days in advance, to host a rehearsal in the brewing room the day before, and they repacked all of the decor for pickup the day after. The staff went above and beyond to make it a great day and genuinely seemed to love hosting the wedding! Don't hesitate to contact them, we have zero regrets and lots of happy memories that we can keep celebrating there for years to come!Sent on 10/25/2018
