COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As a brewery, we haven’t been brewing lagers for a while. This or that has kept us distanced from that world, but we’re dipping back in with a release that’s coming to you on Friday 10/28. You can expect a beer that’s much like an Octoberfest, with a sturdy malt frame, but cloaked under the cover of October’s timely neighbor, November. Come see us and take a drive through Lager Town

My second favorite from my visit to the tap room. Big nutty taste followed by a burst of piney hops. Great fizz to it as well. Growler worthy.

rubbishystuff (1809) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Howler from the brewery. I was sure it said something about it being a rye lager. It certainly seemed like it had that spicy rye taste and a reddish brown color. Slightly cloudy beer. Very good. Serving: Tap
