Beer in Chicago
 
I'm in Chicago for the weekend, which gives me the opportunity to try some beers I've never had before. I had an Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, which was extremely good, a Founders Red's Rye PA, a Goose Island Frere Jacques and Sofie. All were great with the Edmund Fitzgerald being a slight favorite.

Anything else I should seek out while in town?

Any thing 3 Floyd's makes or better yet get out to the brewery it's 30 min from Chicago. Are you downtown?

Revolution, Haymarket, Flossmoor Station, Crown Brewing, Half Acre, Piece are either brew pubs or have tasting rooms and worth the visit.

Some favorite Chicago-brewed beers (in addition to those above) are Finches, Metropolitan, 5 Rabbits, Pipewrench

Was just there last weekend. Some good bars with great tap selections are Oscar Wilde Bar, The Local Option, Paddy Long's (they had beer and BACON pairings!), and Clark Street Ale House.

Anything by 3 Floyd's. Also, if you go somewhere that serves Goose Island's Green Line, give it a shot. It's a really nice APA that is served only on draft and also only in Chicago (and the burbs).
