The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Savor a patriotic treat with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a beer and burger package for two at Chicago Brewing Company (up to a $32 value). The burger package includes:
- Two 22-ounce beers of your choice (a $10 value)
- Two burgers of your choice, served with fries (up to a $24 value)
Chicago Brewing Company's head brewer David Pascual crafts frosty brews that pair perfectly with hearty burgers and garnered gold and silver medals at the 2010 World Beer cup. While twosomes relax, sudsy servings of Ramblin' Reck amber ale swirl taste buds in a ruby-colored blend of five domestic and imported barley types. Old Town Brown, a German-style brown ale, enchants sensory muscles with dark malt tones and a mild chocolate aroma that, along with sauerkraut, is the official scent of Berlin. In between hoppy gulps, dinner duos can squelch stomach rumblings with any two burgers such as the classic Brewhouse burger—a juicy Black Angus patty topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion. The open-faced Chicago chili cheeseburger ($11) stops hunger in its tracks with regular fixin's and a heap of house-made chili. To meet dietary requirements, all burgers arrive alongside a serving of french fries.
Chicago Brewing Company tickles guests' midwestern fancies with a lofted, Chicago-style pub interior replete with hardwood floors, exposed ductwork, and the ghost of Al Capone. With spacious tables and a well-lit bar, patrons can lounge in comfort or strike up a conversation with any of the friendly bar tenders or beer taps.
