Maybe I’m just hungry as I write this, but when I read the description of “espresso, chocolate chips and toffee” … it sounds like something I’d like to eat.  I guess I’ll just drink an amazingly tasty sounding beer instead.  (Well, later tonight … can’t really drink at the office.)

Creature From the Kankakee is the latest from Rt 66 Brewing Company in Wilmington, IL.  This is a full-bodied Imperial Stout that packs a punch at 9.6% ABV.  And, there is a lot of great stuff coming from this brewery that’s about 20+ minutes outside of Joliet (shoutout to David, their Head Brewer).  Click here to check out their current lineup.
