Beer type: Red Ale
Alcohol Level: 6.5%
Brewed By: Pipeworks Brewing Company

Pipeworks Brewing Company is another great brewery out of Chicago, IL. They’re in the Hermosa/Logan Square area not too far from me. Let’s get to the beer.

The Blood of the Unicorn is a great red ale with a lot of flavor to it. It pours as a hazy amber color and leaves a good amount of head on the top of the beer. It first smells almost like an IPA but then you taste it and you get the sweetness of a red ale with a somewhat bitter aftertaste. They serve this beer in a 16oz can and the artwork on all of their cans is amazing. If you collected their cans, you could start a small art museum.

This is a tasty beer and I’d recommend to anyone looking to branch out from the bigger Chicago craft breweries. Good stuff Pipeworks, good stuff.

Cheers
