Romeoville’s Metal Monkey Brewing has just unveiled its first bottled beer.

The brew, called Asmodeus, will be available for purchase at the brewery’s Romeoville location, 515 Anderson Dr.

Metal Monkey Brewing owner and brew master, Dan Camp said that the bottle release has been a long time coming for the company. The concept for the beer was originated over 3 years ago, long before the brewery opened in January 2015.

“We wanted to come up with a recipe for a big, rich, imperial stout that would hold up well to barrel aging, infusing with other flavors, and one that would taste amazing,” Camp said.

“Many of our loyal customers have been anticipating the release of Asmodeus,” Camp said in press release.

The brewery has a total of 1,000 bottles of Asmodeus for sale with a two bottle limit per customer.

“This bottle release is a big milestone for Metal Monkey Brewing,” said Mayor John Noak in the release.

“It is exciting to have the first bottled beer ever manufactured in Romeoville come out this season. We wish them continued success in the future,” added Noak.

Asmodeus, which is 12% alcohol by volume, will also be on tap at its Romeoville store, as well 15 other beers all made in-house.
