Moody Tongue Brewing Company
Jeremy Cohn and Jared Rouben – Owners
2136 South Peoria Street
Chicago, IL 60608
Moody Tongue Brewing Company was established in June 2014 under the direction of acclaimed Brewmaster Jared Rouben, and joined the Chicago Chinatown Chamber of Commerce in August 2016. “Moody Tongue”, a nickname for a guest with a discerning palate, features culinary brewing, Jared’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, Jared worked in Michelin-starred kitchens such as the Martini House in Napa, CA and Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York City before moving to Chicago to pursue a career in brewing.
The philosophy of culinary brewing rests on three principles:
– Sourcing the highest quality ingredients
– Showcasing flavors and aromatics of the ingredients
– Knowing when to incorporate these ingredients during the brewing process
Opening in October 2016, Moody Tongue will introduce a 75-seat tasting room to its brewery, serving 12 year-round and limited-release beers in an intimate mid-century modern atmosphere.
