Whiner Beer Le Tub
A Blended Barrel-Aged Wild Saison. You'll want to bathe your mouth with it. Le Tub is a saison that is blended with a second saison that has been soured with Lactobacillus (a form of bacteria common in brewing), then aged in cabernet barrels with the addition of Brettanomyces bruxellensis (aka Brett), a yeast that adds a funky, earthy tone to the beer.
Housed in The Plant, a net-zero energy business incubator located in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood, Whiner aims to promote environmentally responsible brewing. The brewery will play a major role in the operations of The Plant’s anaerobic digester. Once up and running, Whiner’s spent grain will help fuel the digester, producing energy for the entire building.
