Half Acre Brewing (Chicago, IL) is releasing some new beers in the coming weeks. The first of what is sure to be some interesting brews celebrates Chicago Craft Beer Week 2011. The week runs from May 19th-29th this year. The beer? Meat Wave. Half Acre talks suds:
We’re going to release a number of beers in the coming weeks, but for one we aimed at capturing the essence of what Chicago is and how it’s people do what they do. Clearly our city hosts all kinds of interests, but we combed the fabric of this town and came back with: Pigs. Chicago has been romancing pigs and their tasty bodies in ways like never before. Pigs are hot, totally trending, and part of what we do. Chicago popular culture is running rampant with our succulent friends, while our history is steeped in pork parts. What we’re saying, is that Chicago has been entrenched in the pig for ages and we’re about to climax. Meat Wave is an english-bent India Pale Ale that will be our Chicago Craft Beer Week beer. Earthy delicious, this meat centric offering is for you, Chicago.
