New Exclusive Beer Celebrates Sue, The Field Museum's Beloved T-Rex

The Field Museum has been doing some pretty awesome things with beer lately. They serve a special collaboration with Off Color Brewing, Tooth and Claw. They've brewed beer based on an ancient recipe. Now, they're bringing a new brewery in for a special, exclusive beer.

The museum announced that they have teamed up with Toppling Goliath Brewing Company, out of Decorah, Iowa, to bring in "Psuedo Sue," a pale ale that will be available in Illinois only at the museum, starting January 25. The brew features evergreen, for what the museum describes as a beer that is "delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish."

Toppling Goliath may not be as familiar as some of our local brewers, but according to the Tribune, they recently made headlines for releasing one of the most expensive beers in history. The beer isn't brand new, exactly, but this is the first time it has been available in Illinois.

The new beer, which features a growling T-Rex on the bottle, will launch at a special event on Jan. 25, 2017. Tickets are $40 for non-members, and include the beer, food pairing from the Field Bistro and a special glass to take home. After that, it'll be available at the Field Bistro and at the Museum Store for purchase.
