Beer of the Week: Huitzi

Very few of our Beers of the Week have had the distinction of being named in a lawsuit at the same time The Hopleaf’s Michael Roper was singing their praises, but such is the situation this week for the talented guys over at 5 Rabbit in Bedford Park.

But internal issues aside, this week’s pick is a winner. I know where Roper is coming from on this one. The Huitzi is a very special beer, with its hints of chamomile, hibiscus, fresh ginger root and some local Chicago honey. The warm, amber color makes it a perfect mid-winter beer and the aroma is, well, you’ll have to see for yourself. Cheers.
