Dolomite at Piece

Dolomite Malt Liquor at Piece

Piece (1927 W North) is already a favorite of Team Gerdes — Erica likes the exotic pizza toppings like mashed potatoes and artichoke hearts and I like the New Haven-style Plain Crust because I’m not actually a big cheesey-pizza fan. We both like the beer — the Worryin’ Ale has, indeed, washed away many of our worries and the beermosa (a sour German beer and orange juice) is fifty times better than it sounds. Tonight, I ordered the “Brewer’s Choice” to get a dollar off my beer and it was the Dolomite — Piece’s own micro-brewed malt liquor. Which they serve in a glass in a paper bag. Erica laughed every single time I took a drink and refused to let me take it out of the bag. It also got me well-buzzed. Got-a-quarter?

    I used to go in there from time to time when I lived in Wicker Park. They used to have this “Jockey Full of Bourbon” on a shelf of the bar, and I thought that was pretty cool. I can’t remember exactly what it was or what it was for, but any place that pays tribute to Tom Waits like that is o.k. in my book.

    Ok, this one’s on my list to check out while I’m there in July and I’m nominating this one for Metblog Best Of.

    The Tom Waits tributes continue — they’ve got a “Big Black Mariah” Porter right now.
