Our Flagship Beers
Entrenched IPA 6.5% ABV, 57-ish IBU
An Illinois style IPA that focuses on malt flavors as much as hop flavors and bitterness. Dry with just enough light German caramel and Munich malts to balance the hop bitterness. Huge hop additions late in the kettle boil and during dry hopping create a bouquet of floral, lemon, citrus and exotic fruit aroma. Not a West Coast over-hopped arms race, not a trendy hop showcase, just an honest beer that reflects what we love about IPA's and the Midwesterners who drink them. Goes great with everything except brussels sprouts, because nothing goes great with brussels sprouts. Available in kegs and 4 packs of 16 oz cans year around.
Phobophobia Patersbier 4.8% ABV, 18 IBU
A Patersbier–Dutch for "fathers beer"–is a light, refreshing Belgian-style table beer traditionally consumed by Trappist monks with their meals (or when no one was looking). Ours is golden in color, dry and highly carbonated. German Pilsner malt contributes mild notes of bread, while the Czech Saaz hops add notes of spice and earth tones to the aroma. A classic Belgian Trappist ale yeast delivers delicate and complex fruity notes. Goes great with friends, family, and thwarts all enemies. Available in kegs and 4 packs of 16 oz cans year around.
Pantsless Pale Ale 6.0% ABV, 35 IBU
A low bitterness American style Pale Ale with loads of American and New Zealand hops for huge aroma and flavor. A blend of Mosaic and Motueka hops create lively aromas of lemon, grapefruit, and dank pine for you Mosaic freaks. A gentle bitterness makes this beer refreshing and sessionable. If we put asparagus in this beer, it would make your pee smell like asparagus. That's why we don't do it. Available in kegs and 4 packs of 16 oz cans year around.
Taproom Beer List
In addition to our flagship beers we feature a rotating selection of delicious offerings in our taproom. Here is the current beer list:
Belgian Tripel - 9.4%, 35 IBU
Our strongest beer yet! German Pilsner and honey malt, Hallertau Blanc and Saaz Hops. Layers of sweet honey hide the warm alcohol lurking within this beer. Big Brother is watching you.
Very Stable Genius
Belgian Strong Ale – 8.2% ABV, 30 IBU
Our latest bigly Belgian-style beer. German pilsner and domestic 2-row malts with wheat and oats. Czech Saaz hops bring it all together. Think of it as Phobophobia with a 168 IQ.
I Don't Like Belgiums NEW!
Belgian IPA - 5.8% ABV, 20 IBU
Collaboration with our friends at Haymarket Pub. Hopped aggressively with 100% Chinook hops to add fruit and pine notes. American Red Wheat adds a soft body that is filled out with our fruity Belgian yeast. Turns out, you do like Belgian beer!
NEIPA - 5.6% ABV, 35 IBU
Our flagship New England Style IPA. Oozing with hop flavor from Mosaic and Citra hops. A bit of lactose for body and underlying sweetness. Hazy, juicy, whatever the kids use to describe this style these days.
Double Dry Hop IPA - 6.1% ABV, 30 IBU
Chinook, Citra, & Simcoe hops meet barley and red wheat malts. Aaron says it's "Far out". He also listens to "Freedom Rock".
NEIPA - 4.7% ABV, 30 IBU
A New England style pale ale with cinnamon, vanilla, cacao, and cayenne. Imagine a Mexican cake in your glass! Our first journey into non-traditional beer ingredients and we’re hooked.
American Blonde Ale – 5% ABV, 14 IBU
We renamed "Golden Showers" because well.... Our simple, clean American blonde ale designed for maximum crushability. Light bready, and slightly sweet flavor from the honey malt paired with spicy EKG hops. Live to crush.
Oatmeal Stout – 5% ABV, 20 IBU
An update to our Skewmageddon oatmeal stout. Aaron tweaked the malt bill, lowered the alcohol, and fermented it with our new English yeast. Rich and delicious roasty and biscuity flavors with loads of flaked oats to create a smooth and chewy body. A great way to layer against the fall/winter chill!
Full Count NEW!
English Style Pale Ale – 5.7% ABV, 25 IBU
A collaboration with Lucky Dorr. A super clean, easy drinking ale with balanced malt and hop character. Golden in color with rich flavor from the classic Maris Otter malt. Don’t strike out on this one fans. Available only at our taproom and at Lucky Dorr next to Wrigley Field.
