Are you one of those cocktail-fiends who follows your favorite bartender around the city? If so, then you are no doubt already familiar with the work of Benjamin Schiller, who has been raising the bar on the art of the cocktail in Chicago for years. Baconfest Chicago is THRILLED to welcome him and The Berkshire Room to the party.
Nothing goes better with gourmet bacon offerings than cocktails prepared by a true artist. Benjamin will be serving up a custom cocktail at our Friday Dinner session on 4/25 ONLY! Be sure to visit him at the Berkshire Room, and come by to see them at Baconfest!
Plus!!! Mark your calendar for April 1 and watch this space for news next week on another exciting Berkshire Room / Baconfest collaboration!

The Berkshire Room
15 E Ohio St,
Chicago, IL 60611
The Berkshire Room, a craft cocktail lounge inside the ACME hotel with Benjamin Schiller at the helm. The lounge is a throwback to cocktail bars of yesteryear where the focus was on the guest and providing top-notch service. Of course it’s all done with a modern twist.
Schiller’s cocktails are divided into three categories—cocktails, barrel finished cocktails and dealers choice—which all offer creative takes on the standard cocktail. Dealer’s choice follows the “choose your own adventure” route allowing you to pick your liquor of choice, favorite flavor profile and even stemware. Barrel finished cocktails will alter over time as the barrel continues to be filled with various spirits.
