Celebrate National Lager Day

Tagged:

For brewers, lagers are a labor of love. As much as brewing is an art, it is also a science, and producing a clean and satisfying lager is no easy task. Crucial to their success is a period of cold conditioning, or lagering, from which they take their name. Interest in lagers is growing and we are happy to report that there are breweries right here in Chicagoland who are producing world-class lagers. So, this National Lager Day raise a toast to lager, a refreshingly diverse category of beer that America’s craft brewers are embracing with gusto!

Celebrate America’s Signature Holiday with America’s Signature Whiskey: Rye

Tagged:

Bourbon may officially be America’s spirit, and the 4th of July our celebration of independence, but two important traditions existed at least as early, if not before. Thanksgiving Day and Rye Whiskey. In the early years of American whiskey production, rye was the dominant style, especially in the east, eventually supplanted by the sweeter, rounder and easier to produce bourbon. As you give thanks, raise a glass of the spirit that shaped our whiskey tradition.

Big Beautiful Bastards from Founders and Arrogant Brewing

Tagged:

“This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it.” This famous declaration is proudly printed on the back of every bottle Arrogant Bastard. Uninterested in appealing to the masses, Stone bucked conventional wisdom and created the beer they wanted to drink, and a loyal fan base fell in love with a beer that many others deemed undrinkable. After nearly two decades of arrogance, the bastard is alive and well, periodically reappearing and reinventing himself in delicious new ways.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Jazz Age

Tagged:

Originally, the Sazerac cocktail was made with French brandy. In 1873, the recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail was altered to replace the French brandy with American Rye whiskey. We decided to recreate the original with Hennessy Cognac – plus ginger syrup, a few dashes of barrel aged bitters, and of course, a heavy absinthe rinse.
