Around the Bend Beer Co.

Villainous India Pale Ale 7.0%
It’s the most diabolical of plans. Four different yeast strains combine to  impart juiciness upfront, but with an off-dry finish. It’s the best of both worlds! A blend of the most coveted hops add grapefruit and passion fruit flavors in perfect compliment. A nefarious pleasure to be sure.

Vera Pistachio Cream Ale 5.0%
Pistachios lend this delicate cream ale a luscious character and delicious flavor like no other beer you’ve tried before. We brew it with a touch of Caravienne malt, which adds slightly more body than your traditional cream ale. And at just 5% ABV, you’ll want to get crackin’ with more than one!

Ramblin’ Rose’ Rose’ Ale 5.0%
Light and effervescent, this Sparkling Ale will have you thinking Rose’ All Day! A wine-like acidity from hibiscus flowers and cranberries is offset by a pleasant, but not-too-sweet finish derived from the liberal use of raspberries and a touch of honey in the kettle.

Juice Trials #1 Double Dry Hopped (Hazy) IPA 7%
Trials (noun): the act of trying, testing, or putting to the proof.
How much is too much when it comes to hops? How juicy can an IPA be? Dunno. Let’s find out. This first trial puts El Dorado and Ekuanot to the test revealing bold tropical fruit flavors reminiscent of pineapple and mango, in addition to a resinous back note. Examine the evidence for yourself — you be the judge.

Union Sour Oak Barrel Fermented Sour Ale 3.4%
A unique combination of yeast and lactobacillus fermentation is carried out entirely in oak barrels (a “Union set”) yielding a beer that is both acidic and highly attenuated, while retaining a roundness not found in other similar sour ales. Low in alcohol and refreshingly tart, there is a harmony between yeast and lactic acid here that allows for incredible pairings with all manner of cuisine or to be enjoyed on its own.

Deliciosa Kiwi Pils 5%
From floral to citrus-y, sweet to sour, apple-y to strawberry-ish, the flavors of the humble kiwi are hard to pin down. Except to say that they are delicious! Add that hard-to-describe, yet familiar flavor to a crisp and refreshing pilsner and you’ve got yourself ATB’s Deliciosa Kiwi Pils.

Lost Sailor Dark n’ Stormy Ale 6%
The Dark and Stormy is one of the world’s classic cocktails, redolent with boozy dark rum flavors, piquant lime juice and spicy ginger beer. This beer mimics these flavors using blackstrap molasses, dried lime peel and fresh ginger layered into a dark wheat ale that is light in body to allow the signature flavors of the cocktail to shine through.  

Extra Circus V Brut IPA 7.5%
Welcome to the greatest show in beer! Extra Circus offers a bone-dry finish thanks to the special enzymes we brew with. No kettle hops means the bitterness is low, but we load-up on the dry hops for amazing aroma and flavor. In this case El dorado and Ekuanot hops for a double dose tropical fruit flavor with pronounced pineapple notes.

U.S. Blues Pale Ale 5.8%
U.S. Blues Pale Ale was created to celebrate everything that is great about craft beer in America today. Perfect in its simplicity, this beer is easy drinkin’ and packed with great hop flavor from loads of Amarillo, Centennial and Cascade hops. Perfect with our great DBY BBQ, let’s drink your health and share the wealth!

Certain Darky Energy Mild Ale with Coffee 3.8% 
We worked with our friends at Gaslight Coffee Roasters in Logan Square to select their Grapos roast as the perfect choice for our delicate English mild ale. Hailing from Chiapas, Mexico, this intricate coffee offers subtle notes of shortbread, peanut butter, and plum, perfectly complimenting the mellow toffee flavors of the beer.

Iguanodon Guava Song Guava Wit 5%
Iguanodon Guava Song is the bomb.com. Juicy tropical fruit goes hand in hand with the orange peel and coriander that we used to spice its witbier base.  

Pterodactyl Deathscream DDH DIPA 8%
Juicy, hazy, and over the top Pterodactyl Deathscream has been an ever-evolving project that truly shines in its newest incarnation. Citra, Ekuanot and Simcoe team up to make this big IPA scream with hoppy goodness.

Black Pit of Hatred Imperial Stout 13%
A dark experiment gone horribly awry, Black Pit is a yawning chasm of dark fruit, roast and smoke with a profound depth of malty insanity.

Stave and Steel VIII: Tropical Funk 5.4%
An American pale ale hopped with Denali, fermented with fruity brett and kveik, then rounded out with toasted coconut and key lime juice. Peppery brett funk and juicy tropical fruit join forces in spectacular fashion.

Gwen Hibiscus Lime Kolsch Style Ale 4.5%
Dedicated to our foster Gwen, a pink nosed, sweet, and a little mischievous bulldog. This Kolsch is light, crisp, with an added sweetness from the hibiscus, and a hint of tartness from the lime. Highlighting Loral, a hop known as “super noble” with herbal and light citrus notes.

Dedicated to Stevie, the spunky little queen of Molly, founder of the Chicago English Bulldog Rescue. This Belgian Golden Strong is made exclusively with Idaho Gem Hops. We used a Belgian Yeast to give notes of pear, and light banana notes paired with the stone fruit and candied cherry notes from the hops.

Arnie West Coast Style DIPA 8.5%
This is a throwback to the Double IPAs of yesteryear. This DIPA packs a bitterness “THAT’S FANTASTIC”. CHILL, we did our best to balance out the bitterness with Caramel malt, after all isn’t that what’s best in life? One drink and you’ll be back. C’mon! Do it! Do it now! And yes, this beer is a tribute to the former Gummy Bear of Candicornia.

Tilly Mango and Papaya Hefeweizen 4.6%
Tilly is named after our second foster, Matilda. Tilly is a Hefeweizen brewed with white wheat malt, papayas, mangos, and finished off with citrusy Cascade hops. We think it’s the perfect beer for sitting out in the sun but we are a little biased.

The winner of our 2019 National Bulldog Day Contest! Doug, also known as Bubs, is a tart strawberry Gose with Pink Himalayan salt. Dedicated to the loving, sweet squishy-faced bully that spends his days begging for treats and belly rubs. Doug may look tough, but this gentle giant loves to swim, sleep and snore.
