Jameson (12 year old special reserve), Kaluah and Bailey's. I've always been told not to mix Bailey's and whiskey, but it tastes fine and there's no separation issues. The three really compliment each other nicely. Plus it's a small glass filled with ice so hopefully it's not enough to cause stomach problems.

Y'know... I'd always thought that cucumber flavored beverages sounded like a weird idea. Then I tried a beer that was brewed with cucumbers recently. Not bad!

This is more directed to JBI, or anyone in the chicago area with beer experience:

Using the best site known to man on finding any breweries in any area in the USA, http://beermapping.com/

These are the likely choices:

Goose Island Brewery (http://www.gooseisland.com/)
Rock Bottom (http://www.rockbottom.com/)
Haymarket Pub & Brewery (http://www.haymarketbrewing.com/)
Moonshine (http://www.moonshinechicago.com/)
Piece Brewpub (http://www.piecechicago.com/)
Pipeworks Brewing (http://www.pipeworksbrewing.net/)
Revolution Brewing (http://www.revbrew.com/)
Metropolitan Brewing (http://www.metrobrewing.com/)
Half Acre Brewing (http://www.halfacrebeer.com/)
Finch's Beer Company (http://www.finchbeer.com/)

Which is a lot of choices... I'm looking to narrow it down to the top 3, and I really don't want to visit Goose Island - so pass on that.

Thanks!

Of those listed I'd say Haymarket, Revolution, and Piece would be my top 3 picks. I don't know anything about Moonshine or Pipeworks. I have not been to Goose since they got bought out by InBev, but last time I was there (couple of years ago) they had a number of beers on tap that were not available outside the brewpub.

If you're looking for an interesting beer bar (as opposed to a brewpub), check out The Map Room (http://maproom.com/).

And if you're coming out on I-94, be sure to stop at Greenbush in Sawyer MI!

Used to be a pretty good Euro Pils if you got a reasonably fresh pint on draft or a bottle from an unopened case so it wasn't lightstruck. Seems to have slipped in recent years. Sadly, I'm not a fan any more.

Man going on a trip to Chicago is crazy expensive as it is... And even more so when visiting the boatloads of craft breweries around the vicinity!

With the exception of New Glarus, which I just drove to the border, a town called Kenosha, for the sole purpose of purchasing New Glarus beer.

This is the list of beer I purchased at each place:

New Glarus
1x bottle of Wisconsin Belgian Cherry Red
6 pack containing: 2x spotted cow, 3x fat squirrel, 1x dancing man wheat
6 pack containing: 1x moon man, 2x totally naked, 3x two women
6 pack containing: 2x black top, 2x blonde, and 2 other random Wisconsin beers (1x polish moon from MKE, and 1x shine on from Central Waters)
6 pack of laughing fox
4 pack of imperial ipa (IIPA - thumbprint series)
4 pack of barley wine (thumbprint series)

3 Floyd's
6 pack of zombie dust
6 pack of jinx lager
6 pack of alpha king
6 pack of gumball head
1 very special super limited bottle of CABRA (barrel aged robert the bruce scottish ale) w/raspberries... numbered 40/579, waxed
1 bottle of moloko milk stout

Two Brothers (Tap Room)
1 bottle of pillar of salt white rye ale
Note: their cinnamon rootbeer is freakin' out of this world jaw-dropping awesome. Why I didn't bring home a growler of it is beyond me.

Flossmoor
1 bottle of finlaggin scotch ale (limited/waxed/bourbon barreled)
1 bottle of imperial schwartz (limited/waxed)

...which all ends up around $200 - I just wanted to spread what I had in a vast quantity and rare selections.

Oh yeah, and finally:

I managed to go to the Map Room and have 2-3 beers. Very nice selection of draft and bottled beer. Thanks JBI!

Deschutes Black Butte Porter Reserve XXIV

Ordered a 1/3 keg(1/6 barrel) of their normal Black Butte Porter for $62 - when at the store to pick it up they had accidentally ordered a 1/2 keg of the yearly reserve edition(11% abv) so that's what I got instead. $270 half keg for about $60.. I think the store lost about $140 on the transaction.

Last time I ordered a keg through this same store they messed up my order and sold me a sam adams keg at cost to make up for it; I paid $80 for a full keg of sam adams(usually around $150). While the store I go through never gets my order right I am still their customer as it always works out in the end.

Heh... as long as you weren't dead-set on getting a specific keg, it seems you've done quite well at that store! :lol:

I'm drinking random homebrew today. ESB with all New Zealand hops... Belgian-style strong dark ale... Cherry Imperial Stout...

I know it's not what I'm drinking right now but I had a Sam Adams cherry wheat draft a couple weeks ago and it was amazing.

Right now I'm drinking blue Moon harvest pumpkin ale.

This one will have you stumped: cytrynówka. Yup, you read it right; the cytrynówka. I had it on my recent trip to Poland and it was excellent! A little stronger than vodka but so much better! Yum!!!

Ardbeg 10. Like! Quite strong-tasting and smoky. It's like Laphroaig and Bowmore had a baby.
