Whether you’re in search of a quick post-work brew or a frosty game-day draft, Chicago is home to some of America’s most beloved beers.
Goose Island 312: When it comes to a Chicago beer, nothing quite mesmerizes the palette like a tall, cool glass Goose Island 312. Densely packed with flavor, this Urban Wheat Ale begins with a spicy aroma and is followed by a fruity ale flavor. Compliment this Chicago favorite with a gourmet twist on another city staple, a char-grilled sausage flatbread.
Half Acre Over Ale: This dark malt brew is toasty and lightly caramelized giving off a nutty yet pleasant aroma. It hits the spot with its six varieties of malted barley, balanced with its three generous hop additions. This strong-bodied beer is best served with spicy pork belly tacos topped with a medley of manchego, cabbage and cilantro. Add some fire roasted salsa for the perfect balance of sweet and spice.
Argus Pegasus IPA: The playful aroma of this golden brew will captivate your taste buds with fruity and floral flavors mixed harmoniously into a tall frosted glass. Match this malt beer with a tailgate favorite, mini angus sliders. For an added treat, include cheese and caramelized onions to complete this classic meal.
At Bar Novo, located in the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, the Windy City’s liquid pride and joy is showcased with an extensive selection of home-brewed blends. Jeff Dauksch, a mixologist at Bar Novo, has these hometown beverages.
