Wow. Press release from the Field Musuem of Chicago. Does Tree House, Russian River, or Trillium make any dinosaur themed beer?
Long known as a Chicago destination for lovers of science and natural history, The Field Museum is embarking on a unique partnership with Toppling Goliath Brewing Company of Decorah, Iowa. One of Toppling Goliath’s most popular beers, Pseudo Sue features the image of beloved T. rex SUE, who is displayed in Stanley Field Hall at The Field Museum. With SUE as the backbone of this collaboration, The Field Museum and Toppling Goliath are planning exciting future projects including a brew exclusive to The Field Museum.
Toppling Goliath President Clark Lewey said, “We’re proud and very excited to show our appreciation for the great work The Field Museum does, preserving our past, inspiring curiosity and of course, educating us all. We’re looking forward to brewing up history with them, now and in the future.”
“Toppling Goliath is well-known by beer enthusiasts nationwide for its terrific lineup of beers,” noted Megan Williams, Director of Business Enterprises at The Field Museum, “We’re excited to tap into their mastery to help tell some of the many stories here at the museum. And what better way to tell stories than through and with beer?”
Beginning January 25, The Field Museum will be the only location in Illinois to purchase Pseudo Sue, where it will be available both on tap in the Museum’s Field Bistro, as well as sold retail in the Museum’s main store. Its launch will be commemorated that day with a public Hop To It event from 6–9pm. Tickets are $35 for Field Museum members, and $40 for non-members.
