Overall This unicorn isn’t messing around.

Founded by Gerrit Lewis and Beejay Oslon, Pipeworks Brewing has been brewing in Chicago, Illinois since 2012. Over the past 5 years, Pipeworks has expanded, fueled by a passionate team, quality brewing, and the skilled execution of a variety of beer styles.

Pipeworks has received several accolades for their creative beers and bold artwork. Pipeworks self-distributes in Illinois, but can be found in New York and Connecticut through Sarene Distribution, in Colorado through Tivoli Distribution, and in Boston through Nightshift Distribution.

Blood of the Unicorn is a 6.5% ABV Hoppy Red Ale. This beer is Pipeworks’ Ninja vs Unicorn’s hot redheaded sister. Loaded with fruity and piney American hops, this rogue equine always delivers.

In this epic battle, the Blood of the Unicorn has been shed by the sword of the deadly assassin of the east. One sip of this aggressively hopped red ale clearly reveals what drives these, the greatest of, hop heads of lore. Is this the end of the mythical horned horse? Or will he rise like the phoenix to fight another day?
