New Releases and Up-coming Releases from Rev:

7/18: Faustenstein - Our latest barrel-aged experiment is the Faustenstein. This beer is a blend of our Fausten Weizenbock and Eugene Porter that has been aged in Jack Daniels and Woodford Reserve Barrels for 9 months. Faustenstein is one creation the good doctor would be proud of. Come get your complimentary samples all day at either the pub or Kedzie taproom! 8-8.5% ABV, 12oz. snifter - $8

8/8: Riot Pilsner - Come celebrate the return of the Riot, our crisp and refreshing Czech Pils. Itís brewed with four separate Saaz hop additions in the brew kettle followed by an aggressive dry hop post fermentation yields a very smooth, balanced lager with a crisp bitterness and a spicy hop aroma and flavor that rounds out this wonderful style of lager beer. Come by on the 8th to get your complimentary mug. 5.3 % ABV, pint - $5

ICBG has an updated website.

Hopothesis apparently brewed a 200bbl batch of IPA that they bottled yesterday, not sure on the date it will be available. Iím guessing it was contract brewed somewhere as they donít have a physical location as yet.

Go big or go home I suppose, thatís about ~2500 cases of six packs. I assume that canít all be intended for Chicago... but you never know.

can you tell where it was brewed? My guess is either Argus (not likely) Minhas or Sand Creek...
