You probably know this, but beer is, like, a thing right now. Of course, beer’s never really not been a thing — but there was a time when watery corporate brews were ordered without a second thought. Today, the labels you’re scraping off your amber bottles are of the local, microbrewed variety and there’s a whole culture based around consuming the stuff, which is a far less stuffy community than its wine counterpart. The Four Corners Brewery Beer Dinner at Cook Hall, 2440 Victory Lane, is the perfect place to enjoy the unstuffiness of brew culture — while, of course, stuffing your face. At 7 p.m. Friday, Cook Hall Chef Rick Graff will serve up a five-course dinner perfectly paired with IPAs, pales, ambers and porters that the local craft beer gurus at Four Corners are churning out. Also, know that there will be a beer sundae. Wine people would never do that. Tickets are $55, and reservations can be made by calling 214-397-4111.
