Moody Tongue Brewing Company

Launched in Pilsen, Chicago in 2014 by Brewmaster Jared Rouben, Moody Tongue Brewing Company creates thoughtful, carefully crafted beers that blend familiar flavors with quality ingredients through the philosophy of culinary brewing: using a chef’s mindset to highlight flavors and aromatics in balanced beers.

Rouben, leading the creative development of Moody Tongue’s portfolio of beers, is classically trained from the Culinary Institute of America in New York and has earned various positions in the kitchens of Michelin starred restaurants. At Moody Tongue, he forges the connection between the kitchen and the brewery, building recipes for the beers in the same manner a chef would for a dish. Created with simplicity and balance in mind, each beer can be enjoyed both on their own or paired with food.
