The choice is yours

If you’re a fan of craft beer, you’ve got a choice to make on Thursday night at 6 p.m.; that’s when two very different brew-fueled events take place.

Feeling the pinch of the recession? Head to Lincoln Park tapas spot Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba, where you’ll get to sample 20 beers (from the likes of Great Lakes, Two Brothers and Flying Dog), plus passed appetizers like pork belly braised in almond milk, for $20 plus tax. The full menu is here.

Want to celebrate the fact that you’ve still got a job? C-House‘s Unibroue beer dinner ($40) should be indulgent enough, thanks to five courses paired with Belgian ales (dishes include an oyster trio, pork, clam & mussel soup, skate & oxtail, suckling pig and artisanal cheese).

In either case, you’ll want to make reservations as soon as possible. And while you’re at it, arrange for a ride home (three of the Unibroue beers ring in at 9% ABV).
