Chicago Week in Beer, December 6-9

Chicago Week in Beer, December 6-9
December’s Deep Wood beers from Revolution

I’m wondering if we’ll see many beer places with New Year’s Even parties. We are teetering on the edge of a new Omicron variant shutdown, and people may not want to make those kinds of plans. If any establishment out there is planning on a beer-centric NYE, please let me know!

The Open Bottle Lockport, 16437 159th St., Lockport, IL (815) 293-6350 Map
We’re excited to be apart of Revolution’s latest Deep Wood release! Join us as we tap kegs of 3 different barrel-aged beers including their Ryewine, a Barleywine dripping with real maple, and an all-new Imperial Milk Stout. Dave from Revolution will also be here to hang out, enjoy some beers, and pass out swag!
RYEWAY TO HEAVEN – 15% ABV
Bourbon and rye barrels work together in harmony to breathe life into our Ryewine. This unforgettable ale is brewed with over 60% rye, yielding entirely unique malt- and barrel-derived complexities. Enjoy an ample body that suggests sweetness but still finishes smooth and dry. Enjoy life now, or store cold.
DARK MODE – 13.8% ABV
A blend of chocolate malt, traditional roasted barley, and debittered black malt lend this Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Milk Stout its nebulous, void-like hue without harsh, detracting astringency to make your mouth sad. Golden oats enhance body while a dash of applewood smoked malt provides the gentlest expression of smoldering depth. Go dark now or store cold.
MAPLE JACKET – 14.4% ABV
This dry English Barleywine, created with our friends at Chicago Maple, rested for one year in freshly emptied maple syrup bourbon barrels before being sweetened with that same syrup just prior to packaging. Subtle maple aromatics and flavor complement the classic vanilla and toffee notes we’ve come to expect without detriment to balance. Enjoy now or store cold.
