What is the Beer of the Month Club, you ask?
The Hop Review has partnered with Chicago’s own Foxtrot Delivery Market, to bring a monthly, curated selection from some of our favorite breweries–and maybe a few that are new to you–right to your doorstep. The first week of each month, we’ll handpick beers, highlighting a common theme, style or brewery and showcase the selections right here on the site. (See below for membership details).
Visit the app to learn more, and be sure to purchase your subscription by Feb. 9 to receive this month’s box. Cheers!
For February 2016, Foxtrot and The Hop Review will be showcasing the beers of
Marz Community Brewing
We’ve handpicked 4 fantastic beers that showcase this impressively growing Bridgeport brewery, recently nominated as one of the country’s “Best New Breweries” by USA Today. Ordering this month nets you one bottle of each beer below, which includes a special limited release pale wheat ale with mango. The entire package is available for just $35.
This hazy wheat beer hits you with a juicy punch to the nose as soon as you crack the bottle. Strong notes of peach and tropical fruit, with just enough malt characteristic to balance the mosaic hops and Rooibos tea. It’s a memorable brew, and likely one you will want to save all to yourself.
Mango Jungle Boogie
This is the Jungle Boogie we already know and love, but with mangoes tossed in, to play up the already prevalent tropical notes in the beer. *This is the first time this beer is available anywhere. The soft fruit does not push it over the edge, but rather complements an already cohesive theme.
The Bubbly Creek
The first in Marz’s South Side Sour line–bright and lively the way a Berliner Weisse should be. Tart citrus, green apples, and a light funk, from their own strain of lactobacillus, combine to create a unique, light and refreshing brew.
This is how Marz does the trending Gose style. Jammy, with notes of dark berries and sour cherries plus just enough citrus and coriander. Finished off with the addition of lime sea salt that adds the slick saline finish unique to any Gose.
