More beer news is always good news, and the latest good news is the arrival on our shores of Deschutes Brewery, an Oregon-based brewery entering the Chicago market through a partnership with Wirtz Beverage IL, who are making a new push into the craft beer market through the formation of a dedicated Craft Beer team. There are a number of launch events this month all over the area, which you can see here, but the most interesting one to us is a four-course dinner with pairings tomorrow night at Stout Barrel House & Galley, which is going for the crazily reasonable price of $35 per person (plus tax & tip). Chef Chris Curren will whip up the menu, each paired with a different one of Deschutes' new-to-Chicago brews. See the menu below; for reservations call 312-475-1390 or go to OpenTable.
