This Saturday, Dec. 10th will be a big day for Romeoville’s Metal Monkey Brewing. Their first bottled beer, Asmodeus will be available for purchase at 11 a.m. at the Romeoville location at 515 Anderson Dr.
Metal Monkey Brewing owner and brew master, Dan Camp said that the bottle release has been a long time coming for the company. The concept for the beer was originally thought of over 3 years ago, long before the brewery opened in January, 2015. “We wanted to come up with a recipe for a big, rich, imperial stout that would hold up well to barrel aging, infusing with other flavors, and one that would taste amazing,” Camp said.
“Many of our loyal customers have been anticipating the release of Asmodeus and we are expecting a fairly big crowd on Saturday,” Camp said. The brewery will have 1,000 bottles of Asmodeus for sale. There will be a two bottle limit per customer. “This bottle release is a big milestone for Metal Monkey Brewing,” said Mayor John Noak. “It is exciting to have the first bottled beer ever manufactured in Romeoville come out this season. We wish them continued success in the future,” added Noak.
As Metal Monkey is not a restaurant and does not offer food, they are still accommodating their customers by having the Grumpy Gaucho food truck which will arrive at 10 a.m. and the Carnivale food truck will also provide fantastic Latin fusion food at noon.
Asmodeus, which is 12% alcohol by volume, will also be on tap on Saturday, as well 15 other beers all made in-house. Metal Monkey cannot reserve for all customers, although they will be reserving the 2 bottle allotment for Metal Monkey Militia Members until December 16th.
Metal Monkey Brewing is located at 515 Anderson Dr., Romeoville.
