This week's Featured Brewery is Five Rabbit Brewery from Chicago.
Under two years old, Five Rabbit is a newcomer in Chicago’s craft brew scene. Founded by Andres Araya and Randy Mosher, 5 Rabbit has set out to celebrate the rich tapestry of Latin American culture and cuisine. But despite their inspiration, all the 5 Rabbit beers have a 21st century point of view.
An elegant take on a classic golden beer. A base of high-quality malt contributes caramel and honeyed notes, and these are balanced by a brisk, clean bitterness.
12 oz Bottle - $6
Wheat beer fermented with Muscat grape must and almonds. This beer will pair well with our crab cake or a lighter fish like the Whitefish.
12 oz Bottle—$6
Deep amber-colored ale with complex caramel with a long dry and spicy finish. A small amount of roasted ancho chile is used to complement the toasty malt aroma, adding a fruity-toasty depth without heat or strong chile flavor.
12 oz Bottle—$6
October 22 will be Lakefront brew – founded in 1987 by brothers Russ and Jim Klisch grandsons of a former Schlitz brewery truck driver their little operation has grown into one of the mainstays of Midwest Brewing.
Fixed Gear is a big, bold American red ale. A brilliant floral-citrus aroma, thanks to an aggressive dry hopping, caramel flavors balance the citrus bite that comes from Chinook and Cascade hops.
Pumpkin Lager - using real pumpkin and a proprietary blend of spices made here in Milwaukee for us by the acclaimed Spice House, our brewers lager this beer for 4 full weeks. This extra time gives the Lakefront Pumpkin Lager a deep, smooth richness that no ale can match.
25th Anniversary Imperial Stout - a rich imperial stout with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and cherry purée. A strong chocolate aroma arises, followed by sweet malt and mild tart cherry. The full, dense mouthfeel yields a malty sweetness followed by chocolate, cherry, and vanilla flavors, then finishes with a slight alcohol warmth, leaving roasted malt and chocolate notes until the next sip. -
