Moody Tongue Brewing
Moody Tongue Brewing Company opened in 2014 under the direction of acclaimed brewmaster Jared Rouben. Moody Tongue, a nickname for a guest with a discerning palate, features “culinary brewing,” Rouben’s original approach that combines the worlds of brewing and cooking through the application of a chef’s mindset to the brewing process. Classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Rouben worked in Michelin-starred kitchens such as the Martini House in Napa, California and Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York City before moving to Chicago to pursue a career in brewing. In fall 2016, Moody Tongue introduced a tasting room to its brewery in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, serving year-round and limited-release beers in an intimate mid-century modern atmosphere with Michelin-minded service. The Tasting Room is open Wednesday from 5 to 10 p.m.; Thursday from 5 to 11 p.m.; Friday from 5 p.m. to midnight; Saturday from noon to midnight; and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. The Tasting Room is closed Monday and Tuesday.
