From Brewmaster Davin Bartosh, who came up with the idea after watching an episode about popcorn on Alton Brown’s Good Eats. From his training at the Siebel Institute of Technology, he says that he realized that wet popcorn would be the perfect grain to brew malt liquor. Using 20 pounds of popcorn (basically the entire volume of his Toyota 4Runner) from Schiller Park’s Popcorn Palace, he created a strong American-style lager dubbed POP! Popcorn Malt Liquor.
To get your taste, head on down to Rock Bottom Brewery during the month of July.
