Get excited about the Us Out Here Tour for 2015!                    

Since 2009, Kim & Ellory's Kitchen has partnered with Leinenkugel's Beer & WIIL Rock (95.1 FM) for a series of appearances, called the Join Us Out Here Tour featuring Leinenkugel's Beer, and food created by Kim & Ellory's Kitchen. 

We take actual menu items from each tour location, and modify them using the great taste of Leinenkugel's Beer.

At 7:30am on the morning of each event, we're on the 95.1fm WIIL Rock Tom & Emily Morning Show. We bring in food samples for Tom & Emily to try, we talk about the tour stop for each evening, cooking with beer, as well as cooking in general. 

Tom (and Emily) are always on hand to broadcast the Tour LIVE from every one of these locations, giving away lots of free stuff!

Why is this tour so much fun?
First of all, it's the people. We've gotten quite a following over the years, and it's really become a big family get-together every night.
Secondly, you get free samples of Leinenkugel's Beer, as well as free samples of the great food prepared by Chef Kim, using the various flavors of Leinenkugel's.
