The Bad Apple's First Beer Dinner

North Center's newest beer bar the Bad Apple, which opened in mid-September, is hosting its first beer dinner Monday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. The six-course beer dinner is $50 per person; call (773) 360-8406 for reservations. Chef/co-owner Craig Fass has designed a menu (details after the jump) that highlights the nuances of craft beer and incorporates beer into seasonal food. We certainly hope this is the first of many more mouthwatering beer dinners to come. [Inbox]
