Chicago Craft Beer Week–Founder’s Brewing 5/20/14

founders

Founder’s Brewing Co. is coming to the Moon this Tuesday!

In honor of Chicago Craft Beer Week, we’ll be tapping the rare and delicious Founder’s KBS, along with their All Day IPA, Rübæus, and Barrel Aged Red’s Rye. Try all four in a flight, or enjoy a pint of your favorite!

All Day IPA (4.7% ABV)

All day keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. Naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.

Rübæus (5.7% ABV)

Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandy—Rübæus is Founders’ way to celebrate the season’s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

[Barrel Aged] Red’s Rye (6.6% ABV)

Red’s Rye has serious hop bitterness, along with an unyielding grapefruit bouquet from the Amarillo dry hop, balances the malty richness of four varieties of imported Belgian caramel malts. Pours a spectacular crimson with a creamy tan head. A generous addition of rye malt accentuates a spicy, crisp finish. Then barrel it and put it in a cave for a few months and you get something very special.

KBS (11.2 % ABV)

KBS is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.

__

In addition to the flights, we’ll have a limited number of last year’s KBS in the bottle for those who’d like to taste the difference from year to year.

Come on by and enjoy some amazing and rare Founder’s brew with the Prairie Moon & Founder’s crews!

Cheers!
