Purling Hiss get a beer named after them

So apparently, beer is having a bit of a moment. Why, I went to a local tavern just the other day to have a pint and was shocked, shocked, to see all these different kinds of beers on the menu: IPA, porter, sour, and on and on. When I asked the barkeep, “Do you have any Coors Lite, good sir,” said good sir showed me the door. Still chasing a buzz, I went to the store, only to find even more outlandish beers: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout, Watermelon Ale, even a beer based on that silly HBO show everyone is obsessed with. You know, John From Cincinnati?

These discoveries have utterly rocked my perspective, which is why I am not in any way surprised that Chicago-based Illuminated Brew Works has unveiled a beer that celebrates Purling Hiss and their recently released album, High Bias. A press release describes the beer, also called Purling Hiss, as being, “stacked up with Pilsner, Munich, rice adjuncts and noble hops to create a fizzy, yellow sleigh-ride that pairs well with brown meth, NASCAR and Jesus footies.” Sounds fun!

Purling Hiss (the beer) will be available at the band’s November 18 show at The Hideout in Chicago, at bottle shops in Chicago, and online via The Beer Temple if you’re down for the so-called “fizzy, yellow sleigh-ride” but don’t live in Chicago. High Bias is out now on Drag City.
