Maplewood Brewery & Distillery Brownie Points
5.16 gal sixtel (D System)
Full of malty chocolate and toffee flavors, this beer drinks easy and finishes bold yet crisp. Oats are used to lend a creamy body and mouthfeel.
Maplewood Brewery & Distillery was started by two home brewers/distillers whose hobbies spiraled into a full production facility. The name Maplewood was chosen in honor the former village of Maplewood, which was one of the outlying towns that survived the Great Chicago Fire, and is where the brewery is located. Maplewood's former residents, largely immigrant builders, aided in rebuilding Chicago. Eventually, Maplewood was annexed by Chicago to form Logan Square, which we think is pretty great.
