Michter's Whiskey
Our next whiskey dinner here at Maxie’s is set for Monday, Feb. 22, featuring Michter’s Distillery of Louisville, Kentucky.

Michter’s continues a history that harkens to America’s first whiskey company, reborn in the 1990s to create exceptional whiskey. Enjoy original Maxie’s dishes paired with cocktails crafted from some of Michter’s best stuff.

$75 includes four courses plus reception and beverage pairings (tax and gratuity not included). Call 414-292-3969 to reserve. Reservations required. Our most recent whiskey dinner, featuring KOVAL Distillery of Chicago in December, was a blast.

Koval Distillery Dinner 12/8/2015

We hosted our first whiskey dinner on Dec. 8 with KOVAL Distillery of Chicago. KOVAL market manager and Booze Sherpa Alex Diimig spoke about the history and craft of KOVAL, which uses only the “heart” cut of the distillate to create brighter, cleaner take on whiskey – the good stuff.

Executive Chef Jacob Schick collaborated with Chef/Co-owner Joe Muench, Sous Chefs Joe Singer and Elgin Harris, and Pastry Chef Kim Pollman to create an epic Maxie’s meal. Each course was paired with cocktails crafted by Maxie’s Mick Laughran, and set a high bar for future collaborations. We’re already planning our next dinner.
