puree to allow the sugar to ferment out, leaving the tropical aromas
of the fruit. American Chinook, Cascade and Citra hops were selected

yeast that brings a layered fullness to the beer, making this
dry-hopped IPA notable for its bold flavor, tart characteristics, and
approachable hoppiness.

American IPA
India Pale Ale

deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend

bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Schlafly brewers
select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific
Northwest.

Petrus Sour Beers Prairie Moon Evanston

Petrus Sour Beer Night

Join us APRIL 21  as we feature Belgium’s Petrus Sour Beers.

Petrus is all but an average beer. Petrus is a real sour, with roots that date from ages ago, brewed in Belgium according to the finest brewing tradition. Despite its age, it is young at heart!

It is the sour beer reference. Though not for sour people, but for people who don’t care about trends and hypes. People who trust their senses, rely on their own good taste and are eager to explore new boundaries.

Petrus is a slow, unpredictable and wild beer that takes lots of patience. No wonder it is a beer for people who understand the urge to slow down. This beer, aged for 2 years in oak foeders, should be enjoyed sip by sip. Indeed, a real sour… takes time.

Do you dare to take that experiment to the next level?

Simply savoring Petrus is already quite a rewarding experience, but do you dare to start your own blending experiment with the Petrus sour beers? How sour do you want your Petrus blend? Try and taste until you reach your personal level of sour beer perfection.

FEATURE BEERS

Petrus Aged Pal
7.3% ABV

Petrus Aged Pale is a 100% beer from our foeders. Michael Jackson, the
beer hunter, chose the name in the late 1990s – and he was the first
to sell this beer in his beer clubs. Today, it is still the reference
for sour beers in the US. Petrus Aged Pale has won multiple gold
medals in beer competitions worldwide. Moreover, ever since the start
of the brewery, the beer has been used as a blending-beer with other
beers to give them fresh, slightly sour flavors and aromas.

Petrus 50/50
7.9% ABV
Petrus 50/50 is a blend of half Petrus Aged Pale and half Petrus Aged Red.
Petrus 50/50 is our brewmasters favorite blend! Normally only
available only in the Sour Power Pack as a limited edition beer but
Prairie Moon got one on tap!!!

Pertus Oud Bruin
5.5% ABV
Petrus Oud Bruin is a blend of 33% Petrus Aged Pale, pure foeder beer
that has been aged for 2 years in oak foeders, and 67% young brown
beer. In this blend, the young dark beer contributes the reddish-brown
color and the Aged Pale contributes the slightly sour flavor. Petrus
Oud Bruin is a typically Flemish red-brown ale as tradition dictates.

This experimental varietal of hops is being described in many ways at our brewery. A lot of juicy derivatives, an array of bong driven superlatives and a series of tree and fruit benchmarks. What’s important is that people are digging through their sensory rolodex to find ways to explain new qualities. Hop growers are being pushed by the rabid interest in expanding the profile hops can create. Science and farming collide to twist on you in new ways. Taco Day takes note of the culinary institution that is tacos. You love tacos.
