After a whirlwind six months (has it been that long already?), we’re finally settling into a good rhythm. Our taproom draft lines are full, the first barrel-aged brews are on the shelves and going fast, and we’re all set for GABF.
But that doesn’t mean we’re getting complacent. In the next few weeks, we’ll be making some changes to better quench your thirst for unique craft beer.
First, we are tweaking our weekly Wednesday special release, formerly known as Barrel-Aged Wednesday…
Introducing Wayward Wednesdays! In addition to our barrel-aged releases, we will now occasionally offer experimental variations of existing River North beers. This will allow us to offer a greater variety of rare tappings, and allow you the chance to taste how subtle variations in the brewing process affect beers made with the same recipe.
For our first Wayward Wednesday, this week on August 8th, we will tap what we are calling “Modified Theory.” Based on our Unified Theory recipe, we fermented the wort with Bavarian Weizen yeast (not a Belgian strain, hence the term “wayward”) and will dry-hop it in the keg with Apollo hops. So think of it as a Keg-Hopped Imperial Hefewiess…or something.
Also, while we will continue to bottle most of our barrel-aged releases, Wayward experiments will all be one-time, small-batch releases, typically about 5 gallons. Hence, they will only be available on the Wednesday they are released, on draft in the taproom only.
And second, starting Monday, August 20th, the River North taproom will be open 7 days a week!
Our new hours will be:
- Monday – Thursday: 3pm – 9pm.
- Friday: 3pm – 10pm.
- Saturday: 1pm – 10pm.
- Sunday 1pm – 7pm.
With the new hours, we will also expand happy hour, offering $4 pints Monday through Friday from 3pm – 6pm.
You. Are. Welcome. (Seriously, Thanks. We couldn’t do it without you.)
