There’s a Shewolf Coming to Chicago

Two of the area’s great microbrewries are collaborating, and the result will be a big IPA called Shewolf – to be released on or about Friday, July 2. Both Three Floyds (well known for its Alpha King) and Half Acre (which makes a similarly great beer, Daisy Cutter) know their way around hoppy brews. So Shewolf IPA (a strong brew, at 7.5% ABV), should be outstanding. If I can’t get to the release party in early July, I’ll have to stop by Half Acre (4257 N Lincoln, Chicago) and see if I can pick up a growler.

Said Gabriel Magliaro, of Half Acre, on the collaboration, “There are some similarities in our brewing mantras. If anything, this is a more unique approach for us.” He describes it as a “minimalist approach,” light in color, using a lot of Pilsner malt, and Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe hops.
