Beer of the week

Beer: Goose Island Ten Hills

Style: Pale ale

Alcohol: 6.2 percent by volume

Price: About $10 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Total Wine & More

Story: Ten Hills, available through March, is the first in a series of Goose Island beers showcasing hops varieties. The three used in Ten Hills (Cascade, Perle and Saaz from Idaho’s Elk Mountain Farms) give the brew a peachy aroma and flavors of kiwi and sumac. Though Goose Island is not technically a craft brewery — Anheuser-Busch InBev paid $39 million for it in 2011 — I give Ten Hills a pass for having an interesting story and being a standout pale ale.

Pairing: The juicy tropical-fruit notes and earthy finish of Ten Hills complement the pear and fresh herbs in the warm brussels sprouts salad at Harry’s Pizzeria in the Design District.
