It's Chicago Craft Beer Week so why not feature Chicago's very own Local Option. We will be tapping - Local Option Dampf Loc.
Dampf Loc is an all-barley, warm fermented ale brewed by the folks from Chicago’s Local Option; inspired by “Dampfbier” (literally “steam beer”) originally crafted by medieval peasant inhabitants of southeast Bavaria. During the fermentation process generous amounts of foam and surface bubbles burst in the tank, giving the illusion that the ferment is boiling or “steaming.” Tony Russomanno and Noah Hopkins took it upon themselves to brew Dampf Loc as a modern interpretation of its Teutonic predecessor, creating a “Hefe Gerste” ale that is true to its roots; unmistakable in character yet accessible to beer drinkers of all palates. Dampf Loc has a mild hop profile, medium body with pleasant effervescence and a clear, rich, orange hue.
