Brewmaster Chris Rafferty invites craft beer fans to taste the newest brew, Harvest Moon Rye Lager, at Rock Bottom Brewery Chicago. Rock Bottom will host a complimentary tapping party from 6-7 p.m. on Thursday, October 20. The Harvest Moon Rye Lager is a medium-to-full bodied copper lager with unique spicy malt flavors instigated by the use of malted rye. The lager is balanced with a brilliantly perfect amount of hops and pairs well with aged white cheddar, blackened chicken, beef sliders and beer poached pears.
Rafferty has been making beer since 1994, when he got his start at Tennessee’s first microbrewery in Nashville. Since then, he has worked at various microbreweries and joined the Rock Bottom team in 2006. His beers have been awarded several gold medals at the Real Ale Festival, Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup competitions.
Rock Bottom’s monthly tapping parties are open to all, simply become a member of the “Mug Club” (anyone 21 and over will quickly be signed up in the brewpub prior to the tapping party). Following the tapping event, Harvest Moon Rye Lager will be available by the pint for $5.25.
