Leinenkugel Dinner: Friday, November 7, 2014  Sorry! This DINNER is SOLD OUT. Leinenkugel Pub Crawl: Saturday, November 8, 2014 One of the beer-lover’s favorite events of the year is our annual Leinenkugel Dinner at Starved Rock Lodge. This event sells out early, so don’t delay. The appetizers, entrees and desserts are all made with different types of Leinenkugel beers. Our culinary team, lead by Chef Bear, creates unique recipes which bring our guests back year after year.  One of the best parts of the evening is hearing what’s new from a member of the Leinenkugel family. Plus, there are great prizes for some lucky Leine lovers! Call (815) 220-7386.
