Beer of the Series 2.9 - Chicago White Sox

Jonathan Daniel

It feels like we have played fewer games than the rest of the majors with having a rainout a week. According to the numbers, we have played two fewer games than the next fewest. We've also had a couple short series' already, so this might come back to bite us later in the season. Here's hoping that this doesn't come back to bite us later in the season.

The White Sox may as well just become the Fightin' Jose Abreus. He's been a revelation since coming to the team in the offseason from Cuba, hitting the ball like Pedro Cerrano. We also know that Alexei Ramirez will probably pull some ridiculous play off to prevent a base hit in the 8th to tie the game. A division rival is as good a reason to start drinking as any, moreso if there's no game to play due to rain.

Revolution Brewing Company opened up in 2010 and has already forged its way into being one of the best microbreweries in the Midwest. They have a diverse, eclectic mix of everyday beers and one of the best seasonals out there in their Fistmas Red Ale. This series profiles the Anti-Hero IPA.

One of the initial investors in Revolution was Ray Daniels, a man known in the beer circles as head of the Cicerone Program (think Sommelier, but for beer; yes, this is a real job, and yes, I am taking donations to get my certification). You would hope that a brewery working with this guy would make a great beer, and they do not disappoint here. This IPA bursts with a bouquet of fresh, clean hops and just the right mix of citrus and floral notes to be pleasant without being too overpowering. The finish is clean and subtly sweet to bring the beer full circle, its coppery, biscuity head evoking notes of honey. At 6.5% ABV and 70 IBUs, this is the perfect ballpark bratwurst beer.

Revolution Brewing Company is located in Logan Square in Chicago, IL.
