Romeoville’s Metal Monkey Brewing released their first bottled beer, Asmodeus on Dec. 10th. It is available for purchase at their location at 515 Anderson Dr. while supplies last.
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,” 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.
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.
