Sonas Hospitality Co. is proud to announce the newest addition to their growing portfolio, Midnight Pig Tap Room, 1557 Sherman Ave., which will open its doors in Evanston, Thursday, April 19, 2018. Created for both the passionate beer lover and novice, Midnight Pig Tap Room’s unique concept allows guests to experience their self-serve beer tap room in which a central wall houses more than 30 beer taps. The highlight of the beer selection is their new Midnight Pig craft beer line that is brewed in Plainfield, Ill. The new, 2,200 square foot tap room will seat 125 people and be the perfect spot for intimate gatherings. Casual and inviting, with a wall of taps and no bartender, guests will use a card loaded with their desired dollar amount, which they scan by the taps to self-pour beer by ounce.
The Midnight Pig Tap Room will also feature a limited menu created by Executive Chef Marcus Mooney. The casual, pig-inspired menu features pork-based starters, soups, salads, entrees, sandwiches and sweets, including charcuterie boards with local and imported meats and cheeses, warm pretzels, hand-breaded Wisconsin cheese curds, pork confit poutine, porchetta baguette sandwich, buttermilk fried chicken & chorizo, pastrami reuben, bacon beer filet tips, warmed spiced donuts, chocolate brownie pig out and more.

In a nod to the prohibition era, the name “Midnight Pig,” inspired by speak easies, bootleggers and moonshiners, credits the “pig,” which was a vessel used to carry alcohol surreptitiously during this time. Honoring its namesake, Midnight Pig Tap Room captures the essence of the prohibition-era with a first-come, first-serve policy, old fashioned-style table seating, a lounge seating area, and beer served in old fashioned ball jars with handles. At any time 12 to 15 Midnight Pig brand beers will be available with other local favorites, all available in two oz. to 16 oz. pours.
“We are thrilled to introduce a brand new concept to the Evanston community,” said Edward Carrella, chief executive officer, Sonas Hospitality. “As the creators of the cherished Evanston hotspot Tommy Nevin’s, we wanted to bring something new and special to patrons who have supported us throughout the years. Midnight Pig Tap Room will give guests a space to enjoy the newest local offerings and serve as a unqiue yet comfortable place to gather and socialize.”
The signature Midnight Pig beer, brewed at Nevin’s Brewing Company in Plainfield, is served at all Sonas Hospitality restaurants and sold across Chicagoland. Their local, craft beers including Apocalyptinator, Hook & Hatchet, Shamefaced, Snitches Get Stitches, Tumultuous and Pinched, are brewed year round with special seasonal releases.
Midnight Pig Tap Room’s beer taps are supported by new technology from PourMyBeer, a Chicago based technology company specializing in self-serve dispense technology. Their proprietary system, allowing customers to pour their own beverages, requires guests to check-in with staff every two drinks.
Managed by Sonas Hospitality Co., Midnight Pig Tap Room will be open Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m., Friday from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information about Midnight Pig Tap Room, please visit click for details or follow Midnight Pig Tap Room on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
