Haymarket Chicago Tavern Beer

Chicago Tavern Beer

Tonight I had Chicago Tavern Beer. This is a lager from Haymarket Beer Company in collaboration with @ChicagoBars

This is a beer flavored beer and it’s terrific. I am enjoying everything about this one. This has a nice pale golden color, good aroma. The taste is spot on! Really good carbonation and finish here as well. I’m not sure what rock I was hiding under, but this is the first time I’ve had this beer. It’s been around for a few years and I picked this up at Binny’s the other day. This was canned on 9/27/21 and like I said, it’s worth checking out. Haymarket has been putting out some great beers since 2010 and @ChicagoBars is always there for the bars and taverns in this great city!

I could see me having a few of these in an old tavern smoking a Pall Mall, talking about today’s Royko column and calling the people who run our sports team Jagoffs. If you see Chicago Tavern Beer around, be sure to give it a try you will not be disappointed!

Alarmist Brewing Angel Of Fire

Good show this week where I’ll have a wonderful roasted lager from Alarmist Brewing in collaboration with the Chicago Brewseum. I’ll also have some St Louis beers from Wellspent and Perennial Artisan Ales thanks to Brian at Three One Pour. Plus I’ll call out a former Chicago athlete who’s known for his allergies to gratuities as a Jagoff of the week!

Première De Roncier

Première De Roncier by New Braunfels Brewing Company

Tonight I’m having a terrific Première De Roncier from the New Braunfels Brewing Company in New Braunfels , TX. Kelly K.F.M. Meyer was kind enough to send me this prior to our interview last week, and I wanted to share this with Ruby since she is a fan of sours. This is outstanding! What a fantastic beer! I get a huge hit of the raspberry/blackberry up front, then the tart hit me in the back of my cheeks as puckered up. This is sour AF and I love it!

From the notes on this: Mixed culture wheat beer barrel-aged prior to refermentation with whole raspberries and blackberries. The premiere is the first of two presses from the fruit that are blended together to craft our Saison de Roncier.

I’d normally say to grab this one of you can find it, but according to the bottle, only 96 bottles of Première De Roncier were produced for this blend in December 2020. If you see anything from the New Braunfels Brewing Company, be sure to pick it up as the 2 different one I’ve had so far have been killer! Thanks again to Kelly for sending this one out to me, and to my mail carrier for not dropping the box!

You can find info on Kelly’s book and podcast here!
