Craft beer is a huge movement in Chicago and beer dinners are becoming more common than wine dinners. Another new trend is pairing beer with cheese. That's something that's usually reserved for wine!

Owner Mike Roper is teaching guests how to best pair beers and cheese, while guests sample perfectly paired combinations.
