Draft Beer Selection

Berghoff Rockin'Bock - Chicago, IL Style: Specialty
This beer combines two great beer styles--hefeweizen and maibock-- to create something unique and new, offering clean bright flavors and just the right amount of sustaining richness and complexity. Wheat adds a nice creaminess as does a little rye, also bringing a deep spicy/ fruity character.
  Alcohol By Volume: 6.4%
Gatecrasher - Evanston, IL Style: IPA
Gatecrasher gets into the sold-out show without a ticket. It doesn’t have to shout for people to listen. It arrives fashionably late but closes the place down. Our India Pale Ale stands apart from the bitter crowd and entices with bountiful aromatic hops and a touch of malt sweetness, proving there’s more than one way to crash a gate.
  Alcohol By Volume: 6.6%
Guinness - Ireland Style: Stout
Guinness is based on the porter style that originated in London in the early 18th century. A distinctive feature is the burnt flavor which is derived from the use of roasted barley.
  Alcohol By Volume: 5.4%
Harp Lager - Ireland Style: Lager
This classic Irish lager has a pleasant buttery sweet aroma. Crisp and dry, Harp finishes remarkably smooth. Harp's distinctive, refreshing taste has earned it six gold medals in the annual Monde Selection beer tasting competition. It is Northern Ireland's number one lager.
  Alcohol By Volume: 5.0%
Lagunitas IPA - California Style: IPA
Lagunitas IPA was our first seasonal way back in 1995. The recipe was formulated with malt and hops working together to balance it all out on your ‘buds so you can knock back more than one without wearing yourself out. Big on the aroma with a hoppy-sweet finish that’ll leave you wantin’ another sip.
  Alcohol By Volume: 6.2%
Radeberger Pilsner - Germany Style: Pilsner
Radeberger was viewed as one of the most eloquent drinks by Germany's nobility. Made in Germany's first brewery to brew exclusively according to the traditional Pilsner art. This expertise gives them a sense of pride and responsibility as keepers of a time honored style.
  Alcohol By Volume: 4.8%
Revolution - A Little Crazy - Chicago Style: Belgian Pale Ale
Pilsner malt base provides a nice toasty flavor with hints of caramel and enough fermentable sugar to make this a rather substantial beer. Pilsner malt is the base with a little carapils and belgian caramunich. Hops in brewhouse are magnum,cascade and citra with a dryhop blend of citra and cascade. This drives home the aromas of fresh citrus rind to make this a very drinkable and extremely aromatic Belgian American Pale Ale.
  Alcohol By Volume: 6.8%
Smithwick's Irsh Ale - Ireland Style: Irish Ale
A refreshing & clean ruby color Irish Ale with a balance of bitterness from the hops and sweet/malty notes from the malts. It finishes with hints of roast/coffee.
  Alcohol By Volume: 5.0%
Stiegl Goldbrau - Austria Style: Lager
The 12'' original gravity is unparalleled in its even taste and ability to refresh. Mildly hopped, golden in colour, a great head with superb finish. Stiegl Goldbrau is considered to be the world's finest beer by many beer connoisseurs.
  Alcohol By Volume: 4.9%
Stiegl Grapefruit - Austria Style: Radler
A beer for the summer. This beer is made with real grapefruit making it both sweet and tart. Delicious and very refreshing.
  Alcohol By Volume: 2.5%
Ten Ninety Witbier - Chicago Style: Belgian-Style Ale
Witbier is a Belgian style ale that is typically pale and cloudy due to a high concentration of wheat and barley protein. Traditionally spiced with coriander and Curaçao orange peel, witbiers are light, refreshing, and complex. Ten Ninety Imperial Wit is highly versatile and compelling. Our Imperial Wit has a body and alcohol level typical of many table wines, with a drying acidity, lighter body, and notes of orange peel and coriander. Lighter seafood and cheese perfectly complement the tart fullness of Ten Ninety Imperial Witbier.
  Alcohol By Volume: 10.1%

The first beer to be brewed by the Trappist monks of Chimay. It is noted for its coppery, attractive color.

  Alcohol By Volume: 7.0%
beer label
Delirium Tremens - Belgium Style: Golden Ale
The name Delirium Tremens speaks for itself. The color is golden and the head is creamy and light. The aftertase is fruity, almost cherry.

  Alcohol By Volume: 8.5%
beer label
Golden Draak - Belgium Style: Tripple Ale
One of the owners favorite! It is a dark brown Triple Ale which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples. The second fermentation offers the nice creamy head and full body. It balances a natural malt toffee-like sweetness with mellow happiness and some hoppy accents. You sip and enjoy this beer slowly, probably as a dessert.

The Pub Experience "Craic"

In the small villages that dot Ireland, the pub culture plays an important role in social life: it is the social hub of the community. Half of the magic of Ireland lies in the people, for whom great conversation and good humor are at the very heart of a wonderful culture. For instance, in a town with a population of 1,000, there are often as many as 50 pubs. Village folks don’t sit in front of the television after supper, they meet at the local pub and don’t go home until everyone at the table has politely bought a round.

Craic is an atmosphere that will be different from pub to pub, yet will be the main difference between us and all of the other pubs, restaurants, and bars in town. Craic is not something that you can hold in your hand, nor can you see it on the wall yet, when you walk into a pub and it is there, you can definitely feel it. Craic is the little something extra that is done to make our guests have a great time.

The Irish are well known for their appreciation of good drink. Beer and ale are almost as important to the Irish diet as food, and pub life is a critical aspect of the Irish social culture. Stout, a strong dark, malty-tasting beer, is Ireland’s most popular drink; and Guinness, a name that is synonymous with stout, is a national treasure. Here at the Curragh we guarantee that your pint will be the best around. In recognition of our dedication to pouring the perfect pint, the Curragh has been awarded the Guinness Gold Standard Award for perfect pints!

Thank you for visiting the Curragh Irish Pub and Restaurant and we hope you enjoyed the "Craic".
