CHOCOLATE BEER FOR HOME BREWERS
 
Perfect Brewing Supply began in a warehouse in Mt. Prospect doing only mail orders. The story from there is a tangled web indeed. The business eventually found its way to the old Libertyville newspaper building, which had been expanded three times for the previous inhabitants. All this extra space allowed for Perfect Brewing Supply to merge with a carpentry business named A Rare Find. Under each owner the business had one thing in common – its love of homebrew.
 
This shop has been the home and favored destination of many local homebrewers and homebrew clubs, with their most notable former employee being Billy, the extremely talented brewer, shop manager and now Brewmaster at Tighthead Brewing Co.
 
Perfect Brewing Supply is also a carrier of Cholaca’s pure liquid cacao available for your chocolate beer, homebrew convenience.  
 
A Word from a Cholaca HomeBrew User:
 
 
“Head retention was not a problem (from using PB2 in the boil and secondary, with NO peanut oil and NO extracts!) The dark chocolate and peanut butter flavors are on point and natural!  100% will be using more Cholaca in the future. My other homebrew friends are using it as well and we are excited to see what they have come up with!  This beer will 100% be in my keezer rotation in the cold winter months every year.”  – Home Brewer, Brian Nichols.
