I received the usual newsletter, which describes the two breweries featured. This month’s breweries are Brau Brothers Brewing Company and Church Street Brewing Company. I am not familiar with either company, so this booklet will definitely come in handy when trying the beers. It also helps in appreciating the brewery’s process and ultimately discovering what I like or dislike about each beer.
Church Street Brewing Company hails from Chicago and specializes in European-style beers, particularly German lagers.
The first beer I tried from them is this light and refreshing lager. It is light and golden in color and is smooth and refreshing. It has an alcohol content of 5.4% and very low IBUs, so not at all hoppy. I sense a citrusy flavor and found this beer very easy to drink.
The second Church Street beer is a slightly hoppier Belgian ale, with an alcohol content of 8.8% and just as drinkable as the first. Again, it tastes super clean although being a bit stronger. If you’re a fan of Duvel, you’ll like this beer. Microbrewed Beer OTM mentions stone fruit notes and a touch of cotton candy! I, unfortunately, don’t taste the latter but there is a spicy citrus taste to this beer. It’s good, but I think I liked the first one better.
Brau Brothers Brewing Company was founded in 1999 by a husband/wife duo from Lucan, Minnesota. Their beers are entirely homebrewed, from farming their own hops to bottling in-house.
Sheephead is referred to as an American Bitter and I can taste why. With an alcohol content of 7.7% and IBUs of 77, it’s is by the far the hoppiest of this month’s bunch. Normally I would be totally turned off by such a hoppy beer, but the mix of citrus, spice, and chocolate balances the hops nicely. It’s strong, but good!
Hands down favorite of the month! MooJoos is Brau Brothers flagship beer and accounts “for over 40% of their annual production.” This is the smoothest oatmeal milk stout I’ve ever tried. There is an alcohol content of 5.5% and IBUs of 24, so I can see why it’s super easy to drink despite having a strong taste. And I especially love the cocoa and dark chocolate notes.
Here’s a comparison of all the beers. From left to right: Heavenly Helles Lager, Devil’s Advocate Ale, Sheephead, and MooJoos.
Verdict: I am seriously loving the Midwest representation in this box! This month’s The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club was my favorite yet. All four beers were delicious and I liked learning about each of these new-to-me breweries. I like that this subscription not only sends quality beer but also a lot of information promoting the brewing companies.
For $42.95 a month (including shipping), you receive 12 beers, which breaks down to $3.57 a beer. While not a bargain, you would likely pay more for each beer out at a bar or sampling at the brewery itself. I like how this subscription brings local and craft-brewed varieties straight to your home, and feel the value is there for me again this month.
