    Going to Goose Island Clybourn for dinner tonight and want to go to a really good beer spot after (that may have some good barrel aged bottles for serving). Quick suggestions?

    Northdown just posted photos of several BA bottles on their facebook page. It's a couple miles north of Goose Clybourn. I haven't been there myself but have heard positive reviews.

    Regarding Fischman's: Never been there but would stop by if its worth it to stock up on botoitles. Esp of the GI stuff. Thoughts?

    HEY MOD, or Jason, or Todd, can't we sticky a Chicago thread that has links to the dozens of old threads? It would just make it easier for some people...

    I didnt pick anything up on my trip there but i'll vouch for their impressive selection. they've got more than enough to make me drool all over the place. mostly i was to lazy/broke to bring anything home on my frozen bike ride.

    I'm liking to try some of the rarer GI brews like BCS, etc. I've had pretty much everything else they put out.
