Back to the Future Beer – Great Scott!!

Back to the Future Beer is a delicious tribute to one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time.

Pipeworks Brewing excels at creating beer, and Jared Saul excels at selling it. Makes sense then that they would create one together. The brewery teamed up with Saul, the beer buyer for Emporium Arcade Bar, to develop a Back to the Future beer dubbed Twin Pines Mall, and it might be the best invention since Doc Brown’s time traveling DeLorean.

Get your DeLorean up to 88 MPH because Pipeworks & Emporium are taking you Back To The Brew-ture. For Twin Pines Mall we fueled the Flux Capacitor with 1.21 Jigawatts of spruce tips & wild flower honey. The future is now so drink up before you’re OUTATIME. Great Scott!

I haven’t consumed a lot of spruce tips in my day, but I appreciate the dedication to making a true tribute. They used 20lbs of said spruce tips along with 120lbs of the wildflower honey. Oh, and the reason they chose Twin Pines Mall for the namesake instead of Lone Pine Mall (one of the best continuities in a time travel movie) will make your liver sing. They simply wanted to make it an double IPA. Gotta respect that.

The Back to the Future beer is being released exclusively at Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park on October 21st, the date to which Marty and Doc time travel in Back to the Future II. It’ll then flow through the taps at the Logan Square outpost of Emporium on the 22nd and have limited availability in bottles in late October.

The 30th anniversary of Back to the Future couldn’t come at a better time. Most notably, the Cubs actually have a shot at winning the World Series. They shouldn’t take too much pride in the movie reference considering the fact that the only reason they won in Back to the Future II was because it was the most outrageous scenario that the guy who wrote the screenplay could think of. We all remain hopeful that his prediction comes true, but given the current series deficite, the Back to the Future beer is the best movie-related thing to happen this week.

If you if you happen to live in Chicago, definitely head to Emporium Arcade Bar on the 21st for the release. To save you the trouble of Googling, it’s at 1366 N Milwaukee Ave; Chicago, IL 60622.
