Founded in 2014 by cousins Jared Rouben (President & Brewmaster) and Jeremy Cohn (CEO), Chicago’s Moody Tongue Brewing Company is built on the philosophy of culinary brewing, appealing to those with a discerning palate -- or as Rouben describes, a “moody tongue". The Chicago brewery has grown significantly in culinary markets across the US and China and, shortly after its acclaimed Tasting Room won the 2019 Jean Banchet Award for Best Bar in Chicago, recently announced its relocation to a larger facility at 2515 South Wabash Avenue.

The brewery's new home will house a dramatically expanded brewing operation as well as two restaurant concepts helmed by ten-time Michelin-starred Chef Jared Wentworth: The Bar at Moody Tongue, a casual, à la carte tasting room, and The Dining Room at Moody Tongue, a 25-seat, upscale 10-course tasting menu. This new expansion is the perfect opportunity for Rouben (former Brewmaster of Goose Island Brewery) to join forces with longtime friend Wentworth (Longman & Eagle, Dusek's) to showcase beer and food pairing in a setting unlike any before.
