Happy Hour Is Back At River North!

Happy Hour at Gino's East

Happy hour specials are back again, and this year we are celebrating with our own Gino’s East Brewing Co. craft beers! Come by the River North location from 2-6PM for 3 dollar pints of any one of the unique craft beers from our in house brewery.

We have the Lasalle Street Lager, a traditional German Helles, which took the gold medal in the 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championships for the Munchner Helles category. This unique craft brew contains bitter German Magnum hops, and blends with the German Splat hops to create a crisp and light finish.  Come by the brewery for happy hour and  find out for yourself what a gold medal champion craft beer tastes like.

How to Pair Food With Craft Beer

What is beer pairing?

A true foodie doesn’t just love good food; they understand it. Understanding what makes great food different from good ones is not as simple as identifying what tastes good. It is about analyzing the complex elements that make up a single flavor and identifying its components. The amount of ingredients it takes to create a single flavor can be astonishing, and a true foodie studies flavor and learns to break it apart.

Gino’s Pale Ale is Here

Our Newest Pale Ale

GE Beer

To welcome the spring season, Gino’s brewmaster Kevin McMahon has come up with the perfect accompaniment to dining alfresco (and inside, too!). He’s has been working on this one since the first day of spring; he could not wait for the perfect taste of spring.
We are pleased to introduce as a limited seasonal item our GPA (Gino’s Pale Ale). This craft beer takes after the Belgians, it has the perfect balance of fruit aromas, a touch of biscuity sweetness paired with Centennial and French Aramis hops round out the spicy characteristics of the blended saison yeast culture. As always, this beer was designed to accompany a great night and give you taste buds a memorable flavor. Since we’ve stopped production of this beer, it’s only available for a limited time.

GPA Flavors

This Belgian Pale Ale is on the rich side in color and is not strongly bitter, highly recommended for someone new to craft beers. Recommended food accompaniments include the Jumbo Chicken Wings, BBQ Brisket Sliders and any of our meaty pizzas. Come into 500 N. LaSalle and try Gino’s East River North’s latest micro brew.
