Origin: Chicago, Ill
  • Like the digits suggest, it's a beer that's densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don't filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That's how you know it's unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. 4.2% ABV.

  • A really big batch of stout. So big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born - A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla,carmel and smoke. 13% ABV.

  • A hoppy take on the pilsner, using Mt. Hood, Meridian and Equinox hops. 5.1% ABV.

    Style: IPA See where it's pouring

    Our India Pale Ale recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result is a hop lover's dream with a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, and long hop finish. 5.9% ABV.

  • Simple pale ale brewed with two-row and caramel malts. Kettle hops are Cascade and Chinook. Dry hopped with Meridian(a hop grown at Goschie Farm in Oregon) at 1.3 lbs. per barrel. 5.5% ABV.

  • Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons. 6.5% ABV.

  • Summer Hours is a crisp & refreshing lager that has a light, bready malt character balanced with a clean Noble hop flavor aroma. 4.5% ABV.
