About Moody Tongue Brewing Company

Founded in 2014 in Chicago by cousins Jared Rouben (President and Brewmaster) and Jeremy Cohn (CEO), Chicago’s Moody Tongue Brewing Company is built on the philosophy of culinary brewing, appealing to those with a discerning palate - or as Rouben describes, a “moody tongue.” In 2016, Moody Tongue Brewing Company expanded to open The Tasting Room within a 125-year-old abandoned glass warehouse in Chicago’s Pilsen neighbourhood. The stylish space quickly garnered critical acclaim and three years later, Moody Tongue’s Tasting Room earned the 2019 Jean Banchet award for “Best Bar." Later in 2019, Moody Tongue began moving operations to an entirely new 28,600 square foot space in the city’s South Loop neighbourhood. The large-scale expansion, located at 2515 S. Wabash, immediately grew the brewery’s current production capacity and now houses two world class dining concepts - a casual, à la carte tasting room, The Bar at Moody Tongue, as well as upscale, intimate restaurant, The Dining Room at Moody Tongue. And, in 2023, Moody Tongue opened its first location in New York City – Moody Tongue Sushi – showcasing beer pairings with specialty nigiri created by experienced Chef Hiromi Iwakiri. In 2021 and again in 2022, Moody Tongue became the first wholesale brewery / restaurant in the world to receive an accolade from the Michelin Guide, earning two stars.

About Brewmaster Jared Rouben

Using a chef’s mindset to highlight flavours and aromatics in balanced beers, President and Brewmaster Jared Rouben launched the culinary brewing company Moody Tongue in Chicago in the summer of 2014. A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in New York, Rouben has worked in critically acclaimed restaurants across the country including the Michelin-starred Martini House in Napa Valley, California and Thomas Keller’s three Michelin-starred Per Se in New York City. After completing the Siebel Diploma Course from the world-renowned beer science institute in Chicago, Rouben served as Brewmaster at Chicago-based Goose Island Beer Company’s Brewpubs. Here, he developed the brewery’s Farmers’ Market Series and Chef Collaboration Series with celebrity chefs such as Rick Bayless, Stephanie Izard, Jared Wentworth and Paul Kahan, ultimately building the foundation for the “culinary brewing” philosophy showcased at Moody Tongue. Rouben now leads the creative development of Moody Tongue’s portfolio of beers, speaks regularly around the country about beer and food pairing, and has previously held roles as the Examiner for the Master Cicerone program and faculty at the Siebel Institute.
