Brewmaster Jared Rouben, with culinary experience and training in Michelin-starred establishments from Napa to New York, introduces culinary beers to Atlanta

Moody Tongue Brewery, the Chicago-based culinary brewery, continues to expand into culinary markets across America, making Atlanta its next destination for their beers at local retailers and restaurants.

Brewmaster Jared Rouben launched Moody Tongue in 2014 to much acclaim, executing his approach to “culinary brewing”: using a chef’s mindset to highlight flavors and aromatics in balanced beers. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Rouben continued his culinary career through cooking in lauded restaurants across the country such as the Michelin-starred Martini House in Napa Valley and as an expediter in Thomas Keller’s three Michelin-starred Per Se in New York City. Moody Tongue is currently offered in major cities across America including Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York City, Louisville, Houston, and Birmingham, and internationally in Shanghai and Beijing. Moody Tongue’s beers continue to be served at some of the country’s most acclaimed restaurants including Per Se in New York City, Monteverde in Chicago, and Bouchon in Las Vegas.

Rouben’s approach to brewing emphasizes three core principles: sourcing the highest quality ingredients, understanding how best to handle these ingredients, and knowing when during the brewing process to incorporate them. Since opening in 2014, Moody Tongue has been a driving force in introducing culinary brewing to America through crafting a variety of food-forward, stylistic beers.

Moody Tongue’s four perennial beers, including their Smoked Applewood Gold, Sliced Nectarine IPA, Steeped Emperor’s Lemon Saison, and Caramelized Chocolate Churro Baltic Porter, are now available at restaurants including: Holeman and Finch, Atkins Park, The Porter Beer Bar, and Bacchanalia.

Moody Tongue’s beers are being offered for wholesale by Eagle Rock Distributing and Atlanta Beverage Company. For additional information regarding ordering, please contact Eagle Rock Distributing at 770.498.5500, and Atlanta Beverage Company at 404.699.6700 or
