CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Field Museum and Off Color Brewing collaborated to launch a new limited-edition beer called QingMing to be sold in July.

The beer was made using a combination of traditional Asian brewing techniques and was inspired by archeological findings from Taixi, a rural town in Taiwan, and a Changzikou tomb, which date to the late Shang/Western Zhou Dynasties circa 1600-722 BCE.

The Field Museum will host a public release event for QingMing on July 13 at the museum between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. All attendees must be 21 and over. Tickets are $35 for Field Museum members and $40 for non-members.

The beer will be sold on-tap and in bottles at the museum's Field Bistro, and will be sold at select retailers beginning July 14.
