Meat Wave

Chicago Craft Beer Week is rapidly approaching -- May 19th through May 29th.

We're leaving it all out on the field this year. We have a load of events, which we will post shortly. It is our request that you abandon any real life responsibilities and celebrate the mirth of craft beer with us for a full ten days. Details to follow.

We're going to release a number of beers in the coming weeks, but for one we aimed at capturing the essence of what Chicago is and how it's people do what they do. Clearly our city hosts all kinds of interests, but we combed the fabric of this town and came back with: Pigs.

Chicago has been romancing pigs and their tasty bodies in ways like never before. Pigs are hot, totally trending, and part of what we do. Chicago popular culture is running rampant with our succulent friends, while our history is steeped in pork parts.

What we're saying, is that Chicago has been entrenched in the pig for ages and we're about to climax. Meat Wave is an english-bent India Pale Ale that will be our Chicago Craft Beer Week beer. Earthy delicious, this meat centric offering is for you, Chicago.

T-shirts too....

Gabriel said...

No, sonny, not in the beer. Everywhere else.

Sounds great. Say Gabe, if I wanted to make a clone of Overale...where would you suggest I start? Any hints on the malt bill and hopping?

perhaps a different moniker: 'Pork Soda'?
