Darryl Postelnick has a pretty simple description for himself, one that many could relate to: He’s a dad who likes to cook and drink beer and wine.
“That’s just kind of what I do,” he said.
Except he’s not like everyone else. The Chicago-area businessman is the star of the viral TikTok page “Cooking with Darryl,” which transformed into a success after creating its second video and has since ballooned to more than 2 million followers.
There’s no secret sauce to Postelnick’s videos: He introduces a recipe and the equipment he’s using, mixes the ingredients — with fancy, battery-powered salt and pepper grinders — and then cooks it all together, ending each one-minute segment with a bite into his creation and his signature catchphrase: “Are you kidding me?”
Oftentimes, he pairs his dish with a beer or a glass of wine. And several of the beers he has featured come from a prominent craft brewery in Michigan: Saugatuck Brewing Co., where one of Postelnick’s longtime friends is an investor.
That relationship is now the inspiration for a new West Coast-style IPA from Saugatuck called R U Kidding Me? that’s brewed with hops from Great Lakes Hops in nearby Zeeland. It’s available in the Chicago area now and will come to Michigan by early spring.
