Revolution & Beer Chef, AJ Francisco hosted a tequila tasting at his home base Patron’s Hacienda on Tuesday night, April 30th. This was seriously well attended by a wide range of folks from Chicago, ranging from the touristy suburbanites, to downtown urbanites; even a tequila connoisseur and blogger. And, oh yeah, a couple of family types too.

We do like our beer round-here, but I have to say this was a pleasant treat. I haven’t had a tequila flight before. All in all, I’d have to say the Cazadores Reposado was my favorite. And the strawberry daiquiri at the end…well, that was like a spiked milkshake from the heavens. I even scored a new cow bell to ring at the next rally (or game). See the skillfully crafted, and totally pleasing, menu of pairings below.
