All proceeds from the ticket sales for the Lillie's Q Inferno Imperial IPA Release Fundraiser Party will go directly to The Katherine McKenna Brothers Scholarship Fund.

 

Chef McKenna’s aunt, Katherine McKenna Brothers, died in 2000 after a seven-year battle with breast cancer. Charlie’s father, Quito (who was Katherine’s brother), and his uncle, Chris Brothers (who was Katherine’s husband), set up The Katherine McKenna Brothers Scholarship Fund several years ago. The fund provides scholarship money for female students at Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia, where Katherine received her undergrad degree.

 

The Lillie’s Q Inferno Imperial IPA – which chef McKenna brewed with Goose Island’s head brewmaster Jared Rouben – is a double India pale ale brewed with a trio of hops (Galaxy, Cascade, and Citra) and it is infused with inferno chili peppers. The Lillie’s Q Inferno Imperial IPA was brewed specifically to pair perfectly with the award-winning BBQ at Lillie’s Q.

 

The Lillie’s Q Bourbon Cocktail is comprised of the exclusive Lillie’s Q Henry McKenna 10-Year-Aged Single Barrel Bourbon, Briottet Creme de Banane liqueur, Briottet Creme de Noisette liqueur, and Imbue Bittersweet vermouth.

 

There will also be a cash bar available during the Lillie's Q Inferno Imperial IPA Release Fundraiser Party.


All attendees at the Lillie's Q Inferno Imperial IPA Release Fundraiser Party will receive a pink silicone gel bracelet that features the Lillie’s Q name, Katherine’s initials (KMB), and a pig. Anyone wearing the bracelet during future visits to Lillie’s Q and will receive 10 % off all their future tabs at Lillie’s Q for the lifetime of the restaurant. The only stipulation is that patrons must be wearing the bracelet to get the discount.

 

Chef McKenna sold these bracelets for $10 each throughout the month of June at Lillie’s Q and raised over $4,000 for The Katherine McKenna Brothers Scholarship Fund. If all 100 tickets are sold for the Lillie's Q Inferno Imperial IPA Release Fundraiser Party, the event will raise $10,000 for The Katherine McKenna Brothers Scholarship Fund.


About Lillie’s Q: Chef Charlie McKenna (formerly the sous chef at Tru and Avenues) opened Lillie’s Q restaurant in July 2010 specializing in award-winning competition BBQ, Southern favorites and sides in Bucktown as a homage to his family’s deep cooking roots. McKenna has competed on the competition BBQ circuit with his father and friends the last 10 years, and the team won the prestigious Memphis In May BBQ competition in 2007 in the whole pork shoulder category and placed in Top Ten every year from 2006 through 2010 and finished 12th in 2011. McKenna opened an outpost of Lillie’s Q in Destin, FL, with his parents in 2008. At Lillie’s Q in Chicago, McKenna is smoking pork shoulder for pulled pork, tri-tip, baby back ribs, and chicken in two custom built smokers over peach wood and lump charcoal. McKenna began cooking Southern favorites and sides with grandma Lillie and his mother at an early age and those standouts make their way onto the Lillie’s Q menu via shrimp & grits, pimiento cheese, fried pickles, boiled peanuts, Brunswick stew, baked beans, macaroni & cheese and banana pudding.  Lillie’s Q features moonshine-based specialty cocktails (like the “Morning Lillie” that’s a play on a Bloody Mary and the “M&M&M” that’s a mint julep riff), 10 All-American craft drafts and a rotating selection of All-American craft bottled beers. Located at 1856 W North Ave (773.772.5500), Lillie’s Q serves lunch and dinner daily from 11am-10pm Sunday thru Wednesday, and 11am-11pm Thursday thru Saturday. “Like” Lillie’s Q on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/LilliesQ and follow Lillie’s Q on Twitter at http://twitter.com/LilliesQChicago and check out Lillie’s Q on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/LilliesQChicago
