GOOSE ISLAND CRAFT BEER DINNER
6:30 p.m. Sonny Williams' Steak Room. $75.

Goose Island bills itself as "Chicago's Craft Beer." That's a pretty bold statement, but have you tried any of these beers? They're delicious, especially the Summertime, a Kolsch-style beer that's light and refreshing and tastes like the nectar of the beer gods.

While the Summertime and the Honker's Ale and the Mild Winter are all stellar brews, the beers in question at this dinner are the Belgian style offerings from Goose Island. Perhaps you've eyed them in the liquor store, the big bottles with the labels that look more like something you'd see on a nice wine? Yeah, those. If you've had a hankering to try these fancy beers, Sonny Williams has the ticket.

This beer dinner includes the following four brews: Sofie and Pepe Nero, both farmhouse style ales; Pere Jacques, a Belgian Abbey Ale; and Matilda, a pale ale. While $75 is a bit pricey for a lot of folks, consider that you're getting a four-course meal at one of the best restaurants in town, plus what will almost certainly be four incredible beers. Call 324-2999 for reservations.
