5 Rabbit is bringing out “Ki’ Chun” (Mayan for “tasty start”) this Friday, Dec. 21 for winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. The beer will be available at Hopleaf (5148 N. Clark St.), Fountainhead (1970 W. Montrose Ave.), Bad Apple (4300 N. Lincoln Ave.), Simone’s (980 W. 18th St.), State & Lake at the Wit Hotel and The Owl (2521 N. Milwaukee Ave.).
This is how 5 Rabbit describes the new beer:
Ki’ Chun blends the apricot perfume of chanterelles with three malts and toasted oats. These are united by the exotic fruitiness of New Zealand Rakau hops and accented by a Belgian yeast strain. Dark Thai palm sugar lightens the body a bit and makes this 9.5% alc/vol beer dangerously drinkable, dry and creamy.
