Ørkenoy - Chicago, Illinois

I’m completely smitten with Ørkenoy. Insanely precise in their vision, yet uber comfortable in this casual brilliance I don’t completely understand. But I want to. And that wanting to understand is essentially a fascination I’m having a hard time not talking about. While they aren’t moving towards indoor seating until the second week of March or so, it’s impossible not to consider this place inviting AF. Even my kids mentioned how bright and peaceful the whole space is, but it’s the little details that take Ørkenoy from a cool idea to perfect execution. Standing in their foyer while waiting on food (AND I GOT SHORT RIBS ON TOAST AND I GOT GOOSIES), I kept thinking I was in a gallery space, but the smells from their kitchen and brewery told me I was exactly where I expected to be. Their collab beer with Hope For The Day is named Sundae Prairie and is a hoppy farmhouse ale in style, but hot damn is it the epitome of crusher. 4.2% with a white bright fluffy head, it leads with a tropical lip tickle and finishes with a gentle citrus swallow, and I want allllll of the beers from this place. A 6-month-old concept with a spotless 5 bbl. brewhouse, and they’re dialing in flavorful nuance you won’t ever experience anywhere else because it’s galdarn impossible to care this much. Holy shit, I am in love. COME TO CHICAGO. HEAD TO THE KIMBALL ARTS CENTER. ENTER ØRKENOY. GAWK. ORDER. SWALLOW. TOUCH YOUR BREAST WITH YOUR PALM IN REVERENCE. REPEAT. Seriously. I want the feel of this place to be where I live. Thank you for existing, Ørkenoy. Holy shit, thank you. – Joel
