Gringolandia is an affectionate term used by many Latinos to refer to the United States. We’re using the term to paint a picture of our collective 5 Rabbit experience as a Latin-based company in the exciting melting pot that is 21st century Chicagoland, and to brew beers that reflect that experience. It’s our tribute to the American craft beer movement.

After staking out our Latin credentials with several exciting, ingredient-based beers in the “5″ series, we felt it was time to expand our range. These beers are our own interpretations of some popular craft beer styles, changed up a little to make them our own distinct beers different from anyone else’s.

Super Pils is a classic pilsner character in a big, bold beer that drinks like an IPA. Euro-pils character, but bolder. Cool-fermented with our house ale yeast for a clean, smooth flavor with just the barest hint of fruitines. Perfect balance of malt and hops in classic pils fashion—just stronger. Unfiltered for better body and foam.

HonkeyBra (3995) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2016
16 oz. can. Pours a hazed golden pour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of bread and strong hop notes. Flavor is bright, fruity hops and mild bread malt. Medium bodied, above average carbonation. Finishes fruity.

drowland (7775) - Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2016
3/4/16. On tap at The Craft Bar - Grand Blvd. For Frank. Clear golden pour under a nice off-white head, good lacing. Great aroma, doughy pils malts, grassy, a spicy kick, crackery. Disappointing flavor, bracingly bitter and mildly astringent, the malt backbone is too sweet, grassy hops. Would be top notch with a better flavor. Eh.

Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is malt with a little sweetness in the nose. Taste is nice malt backbone with a slight sweet finish. Crisp, nice lacing.

shigadeyo (3589) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2016
2/19/2016: Sweet and grainy with some floral/herbal hop flavor and mild level of bitterness, fruity with a slight sourness in the finish; hazy pale golden color and any average body and mouth feel; although the alcohol is well-hidden, this beer just okay (average at best) as it’s just not what I want when I am in the mood for a Pils. High alcohol or not, a Pilsner should be crisp, refreshing, clean, and sharply hopped and this is none of that. Draught at Mita’s in Cincinnati, Ohio.

drpimento (2896) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Aroma is wet grain and very ripe fruit. Flavor is similar to nose. I’m not too keen on pilsner’s that lean on the sweet side. This beer isn’t for me.

Niko100 (2554) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Hazy straw/gold color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of malt, floral, & some fruit; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, fruit, and light grain; Somewhat medicinal - just decent.

ccex (1181) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2016
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with small disappearing white head and a little lacing. Aroma has bready malts, light yeast, and grass, Taste is slightly sweet with a long dry finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden, until it creeps up on you, which made this a surprising pilsener for me. I doubt I’ll search for it again, though.

JK (5594) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle from Trade Joes, Chicago. Yellow color and a good jead, theu got the appearance right. Sadly it is downhill from there. Some noble hops but not enougj, and to get the alcohol up, they used a lot of malt which makes this too sweet.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2015
