2009_02_26_strongale.jpg There's always a beer tasting around town, and if you don't think so, you just aren't looking hard enough. Tonight's tasting, from 6-8 p.m. at Binny's South Loop (1132 S. Jefferson St., 312-768-4400), will focus on strong ales and barleywines. This is definitely not for session beer lovers.

The highlight of the event will be a 5-year vertical tasting of North Coast Old Stock Ale, covering 2004-05 and 2007-09. Other selections of note at the tasting include Malheur Dark Brut and Southern Tier's Jah-Va and Backburner.
