Beer nerd facts
John met Jacob and Morton from Amager Brygus, a small brewery just outside of Copenhagen, while out drinking when Chicago held the World Beer Cup in 2010. The made a collaboration in Denmark while on a trip with West Lakeview Liquors. That beer became Gnade Frau - a marshmallow imperial stout blending both the American interpretation of the style using rounder flavors and bold accents with the brashness and darkness of Scandinavian brewing techniques which place a greater emphasis on roasted malts and drier body to create bitterness. They sent some from overseas, and we decided to take a crack at it ourselves and rename it DinoS'mores after a pastry served at the original Off Color Brewing launch event in 2013.
