John likes bees. John's like of bees led him to hanging out with other people who like bees. Some of the other people who like bees work at The Field Museum. The Field Museum was opening a bistro and bar. John was opening a brewery. And that is pretty much the story of how Off Color and The Field Museum collaborated to make this crisp, clean pilsner with a dry-hopped bite far inferior to Sue's.

Off Color Bare Bear Finnish Style Sahti...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz can
A long time ago in Finland, a bunch of Finnish dudes built a sauna. It was nicer in there than it was outside, so they stayed in there until they ran out of beer. When they ran out of beer they still didn't want to go outside so they decided it would be better if they just started brewing their beer in the sauna. And so began the tradition of brewing this Finnish style beer in saunas. Chock full of rye and juniper and spicy yeast esters, our sahti might inspire you to build your own sauna to ride out this winter.

Beer nerd facts
What's a Russian serf stout? Being smart alecky brewers (and people), the first beer our brewery produced was a 3.5% ABV Russian Imperial Stout. Some people got the joke, other people were mad. The intent wasn't to make people mad, we just wanted them to think about how beer is defined. Ultimately we authored the Russian Serf Stout style. It has all the roasted malt complexity of it's high alcohol brother, without the alcoholic burn and companioning sweetness.
Sample Menu Description: A mouse-sized Russian Imperial Stout. For the people who said you couldn’t make a small Russian Imperial Stout, we call it a Russian Serf Stout. Brewing for the proletariat!
