A Note on This Beer
Scoring a bottle of today’s Le Grand Monde 2018-2 is like your initiation into a Secret Sour Society.
Crafted by the masters at Chicago’s Une Année, one of Forbes’ Best Breweries in Illinois, these Wild Ale virtuosos specialize in hyper-focused, complex, barrel-aged brews. And today’s tart sippin’ bottles are part of an ever-changing, limited-release series.
Normally, the only way to score Le Grand Monde is by spending several hundred dollars and joining Une Année’s private bottle club. Even after you pay the dues and probably learn some complicated secret handshake, you have to drive all the way to the cozy 15-barrel taproom to wait in line and pick-up your bottles.
So imagine the look on your craft friends’ faces when you pull out today’s Le Grand Monde 2018-2 and tell them it was delivered to you straight from Une Année’s private cellar!
You could even host your own private Sour speakeasy by inviting over a small, select group of your most devoted Sour buds to share this coveted pour with.
Just make sure to think of a codeword to ask at the door. Because once it gets out that you’ve scored Le Grand Monde 2018-2, all your craft lovin’ friends near and far will be swarming to sneak a sip.
Cracking open the 4.22 UT-rated bottle releases a field of berries beneath your nose. From the slightly opaque pour, bursts of tart strawberries tingle the tongue from the addition of real fruit like a homemade spiced jam. Hints of oak comes through in the finish from barrel-aging, elevating each puckering sip with a well-rounded complexity.
Welcome to the exclusive Secret Sour Society of Le Grand Monde.
