(Mokena, IL) – WHAT:
Tribes Beer Company, a premiere brewery and craft beer bar with locations in Tinley Park and Mokena, is excited to invite you to Meet the Brewer Night! On Tuesday, January 16, meet Matt Voelker, Tribes Beer Company’s head brewer and enjoy the debut of Mon Frere, a new Belgian-style Tripel.
Mon Frere (“my brother”) begins with a complex bouquet of fruity spiciness, mixed with hints of clove and even bubblegum. The pale orange color comes from a wide variety of malts and adds to the overall rounded sweetness of the beer. Rather deceptively though, living up to the style, Mon Frere weighs in at 9.1% ABV.
Other Tribes’ beer will be tapped!
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
Beginning at 4 p.m.
Tribes Beer Company
11220 W. Lincoln Highway

There is no charge for entrance to the event. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
