Beer pairs with food on the same level as wine; some might even claim on a level wine can only dream of, given the myriad of flavors and styles one finds in beer. Two of Chicago's breweries are doing tasting events at interesting Chicago restaurants.
May 07: Half Acre Brewing Company is teaming up with Bluprint (in the Merchandise Mart) to do a five course meal featuring five different beers. Three of the Half Acre beers are being brewed specifically for the event. The dinner is $55, call Blupoint for reservations. The menu is here.
May 11th: Goose Island Brewing Company will be pairing their beers with the fine food at Urban Belly in Logan Square; this tasting celebrates the Goose Island Reserve series (Pere Jacques, Matilda) and introduces new beers in the series.
