IT'S A TRAP

Welcome to Off Color's Much Anticipated New Taproom

Off Color, the local brewer that does things like make beer out of purple corn, just opened a stunning new taproom called Mousetrap, complete with a couple foudres (they're basically big aging barrels) and a pizza phone that connects you to Pizzeria Bebu next door. Purple beer and pizza. Fair enough.

Now open, Mousetrap, 1460 N Kingsbury St, 312-929-9216
