A Note on This Beer
Illuminated Ingredients: Double dry-hopped with Motueka, Citra, and Mandarina Bavaria Hops for mouthful after mouthful of tropical delights. Fun Flavors: Candied citrus washes into melon and ripe mango, finishing with a gush of pineapple. Magical mouthfeel: Succulently smooth!
Illuminated Brew Works is one of the Brewers Association’s Fastest Growing Breweries in the Nation because:
- The tourism website, Choose Chicago, calls them out for taking “particularly bold approaches to many traditional styles of beer” and urges craft fans to “pay special heed” to Illuminated’s unique pours.
- Their limited batches and old Nabisco factory brew space (seriously) have helped them build a massive cult following.
- You’ll get lost in the awesomely fun colors and details of their can art.
But the real reason Illuminated is snatching up craft fans faster than the wind grabs a toupee? They take all your favorite childhood flavors and whip them into even more delicious, sippable beer form!
And just wait til you get a taste of today’s Fruit Slave.
Just like that striped, colorful gum you chomped as a kid until your mom made you stop, it’s tropically delicious and proudly contains no actual fruit. Only it’s even better than any kind of chew confection, because it comes with a 7.5% ABV!
Before you get totally lost in juicy rapture, be sure to stock up on extra. Childhood was fun, but it turns out adulthood is even better — you’re in charge of your candy consumption now!
