So happy and fulfilled from our dinner at Avec, we went to State and Lake at The Wit hotel for a nightcap.

The U-shaped bar had quite an impressive lineup of beer. I wanted to try everything, so I ordered flight called "For the Love of Beer," for $7 (what a deal!).

My favorite, surprisingly, was a milk stout (I tend to gravitate towards lighter beers) from Colorado brewing company, Left Hand. Dark, rich, malt-y and with hints of coffee flavor. I like.

After getting to know the friendly, deep voiced bartender, Mike, he ended up giving us both free beer. Woo hoo. Chicago is such a generous town! Free steak, free wine and now, free beer. ;)
