Last night I attended a Chicago Microbrewery beer dinner at Wildfire in Oakbrook. It was a supplier-hosted event, so it was on their dime and I was technically working.
Below are the courses, beers paired and my Beer of the Night ranking.
Grilled mini Polish and Italian sausages, sauerkraut, carmelized onion, spicy mustard.
Church Street Brewing Heavenly Helles Lager - 2
Jumbo lump crab, shrimp & coconut cocktail with saltry plantain chips.
Half Acre Akari Shogun American Wheat - 4
Korean style BBQ tacos, soy/sake garlic marinated ribeye, kimche, corn tortillas.
Hopothesis IPA - 1
Mustard, fennel & beer braised pork belly.
Revolution Double Fist double pale ale. 3
Cinnamon sugar donuts, salted caramel ice cream, toasted pecan brittle.

All of the food was delicious and the beers were excellent as well. Fun event.
