Boulevard Brewing Co. by American Kolsch

Mark M. is drinking an American Kolsch by Boulevard Brewing Co. at Sylvan Park

For the first official weekend of summer, a nice crisp American ale. Plus, all the other beers at Jacks seemed to be hop infested pale ales.

Excellent dunkel. Rich, smooth malts, yet a little sweet and a crisp finish.

Jackalope Brewing Company by Great Horned Owl

Mark M. is drinking a Great Horned Owl by Jackalope Brewing Company at M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers - Sylvan Park

Very good!! Malts blend nicely with the subtle fruitiness of a wheat beer. I'm a big fan!

Blackstone Brewing Company (TN) by Nut Brown Ale

Mark M. is drinking a Nut Brown Ale by Blackstone Brewing Company (TN) at Sylvan Park

I think one of Blackstone's finest. Rich malts, just the right touch of nut flavor.

Blue Moon Brewing Company by Belgian White

Mark M. is drinking a Belgian White by Blue Moon Brewing Company at Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) (Chicago Midway International Airport)

Didn't clear standby but I did find a different airport bar. I like Monday's Allagash better than this. Lighter, crisper.

Goose Island Beer Co. by 312 Urban Wheat Ale

Mark M. is drinking a 312 Urban Wheat Ale by Goose Island Beer Co. at Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) (Chicago Midway International Airport)

Kinda boring, middle of the road wheat beer. Not particularly light or crisp (certainly not heavy), almost nonexistent fruit tones.

Great Divide Brewing Company by Velvet Yeti

Mark M. is drinking a Velvet Yeti by Great Divide Brewing Company at Jake Melnick's Corner Tap

A classic stout, very similar to Guinness. Toffee, coffee, and a dry finish.

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales by Madrugada Obscura (2016)

Mark M. is drinking a Madrugada Obscura (2016) by Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales at Jake Melnick's Corner Tap

I got the 2015 version, and I'm fairly disappointed with it. Way too fruity (cherry) for an imperial stout, IMO.

Allagash Brewing Company by White

It's been a minute since I've had a witbier. This is a nice change. Very light, tastes like summer.

Guinness by Smithwick's

Mark M. is drinking a Smithwick's by Guinness at Timothy O'Toole's Chicago

Disappointed with the selection at an Irish bar in Chicago, but Smithwick's always wins.
