Chicago, IL Edition: Haymarket Pub & Brewery
There was a long wait at the restaurant we planned to have lunch at, so we walked across the street to Haymarket Pub & Brewery to wait until our number was up.
We perused the list of beers and picked out a few that looked appealing. We just went for four samples this time, because I wasn't sure how long the wait for lunch would be (it ended up being like an hour and a half).
We ordered a Speakerswagon Pilsner, a Red Sock Monkey Tart Cherry Wit, the Mathias Imperial American I.P.A. and The Defender American Stout.
Most of these were fairly harsh on my palate. I didn't take to many of them, but I did love the Tart Cherry Wit. I saved it for last so I could finish on the tastiest note. Except, I ended up spilling half of it on the table. And, here I was, thinking I could go a whole trip without spilling a beer.
This space is cool, and I'd like to try some of the other beers on the list. I'd definitely come back for the Tart Cherry Wit. Otherwise, might try some of the other options!
