LAKEVIEW — Heavy metal, beer and burgers just got more local.
First up, DryHop brewer Brant Dubovick concocted Reverse Thunder, an 8.0 Imperial Red named for a song by Portland, Ore.-based band Red Fang. With it, Kuma's chef Michael Jarvis created Red Fang II, a burger with a house-made jalapeno beer cheese, beer-battered onion rings and house barbecue sauce.
Both the beer and burger will be available at Kuma's Corner in Avondale, 2900 W. Belmont Ave., and Kuma's Too in Lakeview, 666 W. Diversey Pkwy., on Feb. 6.
Metal and beer fans will be able to try Reverse Thunder at DryHop, 3155 N. Broadway, at 6 p.m. Feb. 5.
