Veranda parties start Memorial Day Weekend. Outdoor dining mixed with great music and an amazing view of the scenic Illinois River Valley is a combination you must try this summer! See you there! Music kicks off at 8 pm and runs until 11 pm. Music will return inside to the Back Door Lounge after Labor Day.
We have our own special beer and it’s called Starved Rock Signature Ale. Produced by Leinenkugel Breweries, the hand-crafted beer is a cross between an English-style amber ale and a pale ale. It’s fresh and it’s on tap.
“You can’t buy it in a store,” said Food and Beverage Manager, Andrea Yeruski, “You can only get this at Starved Rock’s Back Door Lounge.” The last time we counted, Starved Rock sold 7,582 pints of Signature Ale! And that number doesn’t include the kegs which were featured at over 80% of our wedding receptions. At our Leinenkugel Dinner, both John and Dick Leinenkugel were our special guests. They talked about this special craft beer and how it is made for Starved Rock.
