5 Rabbit launches a new craft brew — and it's only at Chipotle

A new brew from 5 Rabbit Cerveceria launches today at 20 Chipotles in Chicago.

Cultivate Farmhouse Ale — made with organic multifloral honey from Morelos, Mexico — debuted at Chipotle’s third annual Cultivate Fest last weekend in Lincoln Park.

Bedford Park-based 5 Rabbit made about 30 barrels of the beer. Half was consumed at the fest, and the rest was bottled to be sold at Chipotles until it’s gone.

5 Rabbit CEO Andres Araya says the brewery was approached by the burrito chain a few months ago to create a beer specifically for the festival. “Part of the thing that we really like about Chipotle and that we have in common is the attention to the ingredients and the sourcing of the ingredients,” Araya says. “It’s just nice to work with like-minded people.”

Chipotle regularly carries two of 5 Rabbit’s year-round beers — 5 Rabbit Golden Ale and 5 Vulture Oaxacan-Style Dark Ale — in 15 Chicago restaurants.
