COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap @ Haymarket. Amber to copper in color with an off-white head. Good hop aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and orange. But, quite caramel forward and malty. Lots of pine as well. Tons of caramel, sugar, malt sweetness. Some pineapple sweetness, too. Grapefruit, tropical fruitiness from the hops, and a bit of pine bitterness. Good hop character, but too sweet.
