Bike-Inspired Beer: CHI Black Bock

Introducing CHI Black Bock, brewed to pair with MNML x Method Bicycle’s yet-to-be-revealed bike design and the city that inspired it.

Deschutes brewer, Veronica Vega’s inspiration:  “With the harsh weather in the Windy City, both your bike and your beer need not only be rugged but well designed. That’s why we brewed this Black Bock, a strong beer with a lot going on. It’s big on the hops with a malt backbone suitable for a heavy hitter committed to going the distance.”


MNML + Method Bicycle’s inspiration:  “The ultimate utility bike for Chicago was born in the depths of winter, but will be ready to roll all summer long. It takes some determination to navigate our streets through all four seasons, but we are up to the challenge. Our bike is a thing of beauty, but there’s still some dirt under its nails.  Strong. Rugged. Refined.  Chicago rides nonstop.”
