Watch a Trailer for the Upcoming Malört Documentary


Drinking Jeppson’s Malört is one of those Chicago “things,” a perverse tavern rite of passage compared — favorably — to “swallowing a burnt condom full of gas.” This Story Will Never End, a new documentary by Fire Engine Red Films, a Windy City studio specializing in Chicagoana, explores the city and horrendous wormwood liquor’s 80-plus years together. At the very least, it’ll likely be more fact-based than last year’s short film positing that a subterranean, trash-filled kingdom was secretly responsible for the liquor.
