Moody Tongue Tasting Room to Tap Shaved Black Truffle Pilsner on Draft Friday, December 2


Chicago, IL – This holiday season, Moody Tongue (2136 S. Peoria St.), the culinary brewery in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, is giving their guests the gift of truffles with its Shaved Black Truffle Pilsner available on draft for the first time ever. Beginning Friday, December 2nd at 5 p.m., guests will be able to sip and savor the extravagant and extremely limited beer in the Tasting Room at Moody Tongue.

Created with premium Australian black truffles hand-shaved by Brewmaster Jared Rouben, this German-style Pilsner’s aromatics combine fresh black truffle and baked pear with subtle notes of toasted pilsner malt. The flavor profile marries that of a traditional German-style Pilsner with one of the most sought-after culinary ingredients in the world.

The Shaved Black Truffle Pilsner, which was previously only available to the public through a lottery or at select restaurants, will be offered at the Tasting Room at Moody Tongue on a first come, first served basis. Guests will be able to enjoy the beer in a 5-ounce champagne flute for $20, while supplies last.

About Moody Tongue Brewery
Moody Tongue Brewery (2136 S. Peoria Street, Chicago, IL; 312.600.5111) opened in 2014 under the direction of acclaimed brewmaster Jared Rouben. Moody Tongue, a nickname for a guest with a discerning palate, features “culinary brewing,” Rouben’s original approach that combines the worlds of brewing and cooking through the application of a chef’s mindset to the brewing process. Classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Rouben worked in Michelin-starred kitchens such as the Martini House in Napa, CA, and Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York City before moving to Chicago to pursue a career in brewing. In fall 2016, Moody Tongue introduced a tasting room to its brewery in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, serving year-round and limited-release beers in an intimate mid-century modern atmosphere with Michelin-minded service. The Tasting Room is open Thursday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m.; Saturday from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.; Sunday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and Monday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The Tasting Room is closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
