Catch a Flight at The Florentine

There are so many breweries and craft beer bars in Chicago that it's easy to overlook a venue tucked away inside a hotel. I'm ecstatic to have discovered The Florentine, located inside JW Marriott Chicago, thanks to the Activate events hosted by the Chicago Loop Alliance. The Florentine is sophisticated, open, and inviting with a separate lounge and dining area serving scrumptious Italian cuisine.

The Florentine also offers an impressive list of 12 drafts as well as 10 packaged products. My beer of choice was a local fave, Apex Predator, which is a Saison brewed by Off Color. I was yearning for a second; however, my eyes and stomach had another idea. I couldn't help myself from devouring an entire wood-fired Margherita Pizza. I'm not one to polish off a pizza in one sitting, but it was that good. The crust is thin like I prefer and it was perfectly seasoned.

To demonstrate how serious The Florentine is about beer, they even created three flight selections. Each flight is just $10 and consists of three 6-oz pours from some of their favorite breweries. Next time I get a flight with a pizza to go!
