In honor of Officer Mathias Degan, the first of 8 of Chicago’s Finest to lose their lives in the line of duty during the Haymarket Affair. Copious amounts of Citra Hops deliver wonderful citrus and mango notes. At 10% ABV, we feel Mathias is a proper representation of the strength and courage of our Boys in Blue. Raise one to thank the fine Officers of the Chicago Police Department for their sacrifice.

A version of Uber Mathias is Mathias dry hopped with 10 lbs of Cascade per barrel.

This was the best I’ve had from Haymarket so far. Lots of floral hops and a big flavor kick that doesn’t give you a bitter slap in the face. Very smooth actually, and the abv wasn’t noticeable at all.

4 oz pour at the Haymarket brewpub in Chicago Illinois. Pours a hazy copperish colour, white head and lacing. Aroma is sweet, a little hop and nice fruits like orange and grapefruit. Tastes a little bready actually, but the hops champion through for some citrus bitterness.

4oz pour. A little darker than expected caramel color pour with a nice sized pillowy head floating on top. Huge resinous citrus hop notes are mixed well with some tropical fruit and more dank dank dank. Flavor is a bit more malt forward than I figured. Aggressively bitter finish, great carbonation for the style. Very nice.

By far my favorite Haymarket brew. Ripe, tropical fruitiness that dominates your palate with flavor. Rediculous finish to this beer, and with such a juciy finish you won’t even realize you are on your 4th serving! This beer is ranked #1 by my bowling team, as "Mathias Tuesdays" has quickly taken Chicago by storm!

On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011. Clear dark orange with a small white head. Good aroma of fruit, hops and some malt. Quite a lot of pine in the taste, also other fruits, malt and caramel. Easy to drink, not as bitter as expected. A solid beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with a near white head that laces slightly and dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of non sweet mango with some grass and a hint of grains. Flavor is similar with a lot of mango, hint of grapefruit and some backing hay and grass.

On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is huge citra hops, tea and marmalade. A very smooth flavor if citra hops, very light bitterness, of course massive tropical fruits. Very solid and super smooth.

On tap @ brewery! Headed over after an amazing meal at Girl and tge Goat. Bright copper/brass pour with a small white head (very dim lighting, so I apologize for any inconsistencies). Nose of sharp citrus, harsh pine, and caramel. ABV marvelously hidden...orange peel and resin are balanced by light honey. Medium to syrupy mouthfeel.
