Usethe and Fünke Blue Release

Date – October 25 Location — Brewpub, Tap Room  /  Chicago, IL
Time – All Day

Oct

25

Usethe, a Schwarzbier (Usethe Schwarz) returns to Revolution on Wednesday, October 25. We will also be introducing Fünke Blue the same day.

Usethe is a German-style black lager is dark in appearance, with a a light-medium body. The use of Briess Midnight Wheat and Patagonia Perla Negra barley malt gives it its deep brown hue, without the associated roast malt bitterness that you might get in other dark beer styles (like Porter or Stout) -- and the smooth character is aided by an extended maturation period (nearly  seven weeks in the fermenter). It is a malt-forward brew, with earthy-roasty notes, and finishes with a medium hop bitterness from the German Spalt.

ABV: 5% IBU: 30. Availability: Draft only. Brewpub & Tap Room. 

Fünke Blue, a sibling of the ‘Freedom’ beers, this Blueberry Kettle Sour was made with a slightly different grain bill, but like it's siblings, had the addition of nonfat plain Greek yogurt to the kettle. The Lactobacillus strains in the yogurt eat some of the sugars and produces the lactic acid, which in turn imparts a tart character to the beer. This time we fermented the beer with our house ale yeast strain and added blueberry concentrate to the serving tank to give the beer a pinkish hue, and some sweetness to balance the acidity.

ABV: 3.4% IBU: 10. Availability: Draft only. Brewpub & Tap Room.
