Lush Indeed. Hello again Chicago.

Back again.

September 2011 - Chicago - The Lost Abbey's The Angel's Share

I visited a really lovely spot in Chicago called Lush. It had a number of specialty beer and wines, and the bartenders knew their beer. I tried The Lost Abbey's The Angel's Share because it had a cool cork top. No, it doesn't take much to impress me. Everyone had a sip, and everyone's eyes bulged out like Roger Rabbit's at seeing Jessica.

It was a kick in the face of a beer. It might be nice over ice, sipping it as one would a fine scotch.. it was heavy in a regular glass. It turned out that this particular bottle had gone slightly bad. If you'd like to read more about this beer, please do so on their site. It's really an interesting read.

As for this third trip to Chicago in 2011: My kind tour guide from Chicago, chapter 1, is still around. I commandeered a couple of his friends who brought be here. Lush is a definite recommendation for those looking to talk beer or wine, and try some rarities.

Oh, and they had O'Fallon Pumpkin Beer.
