As we’ve discussed many times before; some breweries in Chicago have a long buildup to their first beer launch (Finch & Pipeworks) and others keep things under wraps til it’s go time (One Trick Pony). But what about a brewery that seemingly shows up, out of nowhere?
Impossible? Au contraire.
We present to you, exhibit A, Hopothesis Brewing Company.
We first heard about Hopothesis…yesterday…when we saw a link to a news release in both the “Chicago” and “Illinois” Google news feeds at the bottom of our site.
The release wasn’t touting the breweries label approval or that it had chosen a site for its brewing operation. No, the release was trumpeting the release of its first beer.
According to their website, the guys behind Hopothesis have been home brewing and formulating recipes for years leading up to their brewery launch. And this week that hard work came to fruition in liquid form.
