So this here manager of Ray's has 2 main loves: Beer, and History. So naturally when I heard that Sue (our Dinosaur at the Field Museum) was the inspiration for a new beer brewed by locals at Off Color, I had to check up on the news.
The original name for the collaborative beer was going to be "Sue Brew", which had a certain ring to it, but "Tooth & Claw" was settled on instead. Seeing as how Sue is such a big attraction for kids, and beer should not be, it seemed a more subtle homage might be appropriate. The tap handle is actually a reproduction of one of Sue's claws!
You can only find it at the Field Museum, which happens to be a great place to spend a day now that the weather is turning, and below are some helpful links and ideas about how to spend your time in between trips to the tap.
