Yeah, I heard the story about the Imperial Cane & Ebel. The version I heard is that it was actually an error with too much sugar and thus a higher than expected alcohol content. Not sure what else they did to it... but yeah, its been on tap Map Room and Hopleaf I think. I'm not sure if it still is. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get out to either spot the last few weeks.

Hopefully they'll have the IC&E on tap at the new taproom. I don't think they're bottling it, are they?

Saturday afternoon 2/9 sounds good to me. I might have SWMBO with me. She's a big fan of their brews as well.

That could be about the sugar, but apparently all their new equipment and set up is much more efficient. I think the other brew that was imperial was the domain dupage (seems odd).

By the way, Thursday Jan. 31 is the Urban Knaves of Grain monthly club meeting at John's Buffet in Warrenville. It starts around 7:30ish and is located in the back room. Homebrew isn't required but is strongly recommended. I'm planning to attend and will probably be there a little early (maybe grab a burger at the bar). PM me if anyone else is attending and we'll meet up.

a new update at the Two Bros site that answers my C&E question. Should be able to grab it before the Super Bowl. And plenty of time to stock up a little bit through March. Nice!


<<You should see our products refilling the store shelves. Thing are calming down here and we finally are catching up. The first bottling of 12oz, 4-pack Cane & Ebel Red Rye flew out in just a couple days. We bottled another big batch yesterday. So, if you missed it or have not seen it yet in your local store, you should see it very soon. We will be bottling this as our late winter seasonal until the end of March. >>

We have also produced the 2008 release of Hop Juice Double IPA. This will be packaged in 22oz bottles and releasing in a week or so.
I've been waiting for this to be released, too!

I stopped in late last week (Jan 17) and the Brewer's Coop was open. They've got their CC machines up, but stock is very limited and, actually, very dusty and dirty.
