Revolution Brewing creates La Gargola with rock band Chevelle

Revolution Brewing La Gargola

Revolution Brewing La Gargola, a collaboration with Illinois based rock band Chevelle, debuts on August 1st.

The band is playing Lollapalooza on debut weekend in Chicago, and ahead of the hometown swing of the tour, Chevelle brewed a Helles lager with folks at Revolution Brewing.

This classic beer, inspired by the German Purity Law of 1516 (aka the Reinheitsgebot), doesn’t rely on weird adjuncts to drive the flavor. Only the 4 ingredients that beer is really about – hops, malt, yeast, and water.

“One thing that stuck out to me in talking with Pete and the guys was the comparison between making beer and making music.Finding out what works and what doesn’t is almost equally important, just like writing music.” –Pub Brewer John “Jumpy” Palos

Revolution Brewing La Gargola will hit taps at the brewpub starting August 1st, corresponding with Lollapalooza weekend in Chicago.

Style: Helles Lager
Availability: Draft only, Revolution Brewpub
Debut: 8/1/19

Great American Beer Festival partners with Jameson Whiskey on a new barrel-aged pavilion 

Jameson Caskmates Series

When The Great American Beer Festival returns to Denver, Colorado this fall, there will be a new pavilion – the Jameson Caskmates Barrel-Aged Beer Garden.

The Jameson Caskmates Series was created by the Irish distillery a few years ago. Inspired by various craft brewers aging their beers in Jameson Whiskey barrels, the distillery started a new ale finished whiskey program. The Caskmates Series is now home to both a stout and India pale ale finished whiskeys.

The Brewers Association has announced the addition of the Jameson Caskmates Barrel-Aged Beer Garden to GABF this fall. The garden will feature 17 different Jameson craft brewery partners that have aged beers in Jameson barrels. Participation breweries include 8th Wonder, Bale Breaker, Big Dog’s Brewing Co, Black Abbey, Captain Lawrence, Cigar City, DC Brau, Fat Heads, Foolproof, Fulton, Great Divide, Green Flash, Harpoon, Heavy Seas, Parish, Revolution and River Horse Brewing.

The Brewers Association mentions sales of Barrel Aged beers have increased 20% over the last three years alone.

The Jameson Caskmates Barrel-Aged Beer Garden will take up 12,600 square feet of the 100,000 square foot addition to the festival in 2018. Tickets to the festival go on sale August 1st.

Revolution Mother of Exiles, Today

Revolution Brewing (Chicago, IL) releases Mother Of Exiles Pilsner today at the pub.

A German-style pilsner that gets its name from the Emma Lazarus poem, “The New Colossus,” where she describes her personal interpretation of the Statue of Liberty as the “Mother of Exiles.” This beer has a spicy, slightly grassy flavor that kicks in mid-palate and continues on to a crisp, bitter finish. Being a lager-style beer, we gave it an extended cold aging period, which adds to its clean drinkability. 

Revolution Mother Of Exiles is available in 22oz bombers, and draft.

Style: Pilsner
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft. Seasonal.

5.2% ABV, 30 IBUs
