We craft our own beers. Sometimes we even play our own music.
A sweet smooth malt forward beer with hints of pear and plum.4.6% ABV
A rich smoke aroma predominates this creamy blonde ale. A portion of the malt was smoked over cottonwood for a unique smoke character. Moderately low alcohol means you can have multiple smoke sessions in one sitting.4.20% ABV
Bright citrusy aroma with notes of passionfruit and a smooth hoppy flavor with a light fruity finish.4.8% ABV
Our sweetest Blonde Ale. Full bodied and delicately hopped to let the caramelized sugars shine through the sweet banana flavor from the addition of Belgian ale yeast. Expect cotton candy & apple.5.1% ABV
Our sweet stout with a fantastic amount of Honduras coffee from Jens Joe5.0% ABV
This beer has a fresh green jalapeño aroma and flavor, with a big soft, smoky malt backbone.4.4% ABV
Two types of blackberries provide a smooth, sweet, fruit flavor and lend a brilliant purple color to this classic Belgian farmhouse style. Dark fruit is full of antioxidants, so drink a full glass for your health.6.0% ABV
Our first Black IPA to celebrate the 2017 Total Eclipse. Moderately bitter and full of fresh hoppy flavors of grapefruit, pine and apricot, with a light crisp pleasant finish.7.4% ABV
Complex citrus and floral dreamy aroma, this beer is full of citrus flavors that linger long into the finish.6.1% ABV

An intensely roasty, dry, Irish Stout with rich toffee, chocolate, and coffee flavors.4.7% ABV
An ale version of the popular German Octoberfest style beer, commonly called Marzen, because it was brewed in March and drank to celebrate the coming of October. The style is full of rich caramels and toasted malty flavors. A full, sweet body usually decorated with a noble hop aroma.7.0% ABV
Tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass, but not quite as thick. Slightly sweet and pleasantly spiced, this beer should give you a bit of holiday cheer.5.0% ABV
An Imperial cream ale brewed in Honor of the ICA (Illinois Climbing Association). With a sweet, smooth body and spiced plum and citrus finish. The limited quantity you can carry up a cliff-side is all you really need. Aged Strisselspalt hops compliment the malty profile of this beer without grabbing your attention.7.5% ABV
