Juice Trials 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 fourth trial puts Mosaic, Simcoe and Bravo to the test revealing pronounced tropical fruit notes along with a bit of stone fruit. Examine the evidence for yourself — you be the judge.

Vera Pistachio Cream Ale 5%
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!

Villainous India Pale Ale 6%
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.

Ramblin’ Rose’ Rose’ Ale 5%
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. 

Acid Test Fermenter-Soured Ale 4.4%
It’s always been more about the journey for us. Because sometimes how you get there means as much as where you end up. So rather than a traditional kettle-sour method, this fruited sour ale uses a special type of yeast that produces lactic acid in the fermenter, developing a lightly puckering character. A dose of watermelon & sea salt adds contrast and balance to the trip. Get ready to blast off. 

Vivian Pistachio Cream Ale w/Peaches 5%
Like Vera? You’ll love her cousin, Vivian, who’s visiting for the summer. For a limited time only, we’ve got a special treat for you. We’ve taken our popular Pistachio Cream Ale and added a touch of sweet peach for that soothing, hangout-on-the-porch, summertime feeling. It’s as delicate in flavor as ever, brewed with Caravienne malt, for a touch of extra body. And at just five percent ABV, you’ll be ready to sit back and unwind!

Ghost of ‘lectricity Kölsch 4.9%
Refreshing, crisp finish, totally sessionable. Everything you’d expect from a traditional Kölsch-style beer. Only thing is, we use a first-wort-hopping process, which amps-up the overall hop presence. The result is a more balanced, slightly less sweet beer, without being overly bitter for the style.

Rewind Hefeweissbier 5.3%
This straight-ahead Hefeweissbier (the original hazy beer style) doesn’t have any foreign adjuncts or other tricks; just great banana and spice character emanating from the yeast and classic brewing processes. Rewind is light and refreshing with layers of flavor that really kick out the jams.

Oktoberfiesta Märzen Lager w/Pasilla Chili and Epazote 6%
Oktoberfiesta is a collision of cultures; Oktoberfest meets Day of the Dead. Pairing a traditional Märzen lager, redolent with sweet caramel and light-toast notes, with the fruity nature of the chilis and herbaceous quality of the epazote creates a global mash-up you’re sure to enjoy.

Indaba Pale Wheat Ale with Honey 5%
Indaba is a highly refreshing and drinkable Pale Ale owing to the liberal use of wheat and a touch of honey in the boil. New Zealand Pacifica hops deliver aromas of orange and floral notes. It’s the perfect beer for driving the conversation forward with good friends. INDABA!

Burnt City Brewing

Two Headed Boy Unfiltered Pilsner 5.1%
Honeyed malt and mild herbaceous hops. Our brewers drink more of this than anything else.

Face Melter Hibiscus 7%
Big hop character reminiscent of grapefruit and mango with a touch of tart hibiscus. Finishes smooth with low-key bitterness.

Zombie Luau Passion Hazy Passion Fruit IPA 7%
Daydream of tropical climates with this hazy IPA packed with pineapple-forward hops and passion fruit juice. Brewed with Sabro, Ekuanot, and Chinook, Zombie Luau is sweet and pleasantly tart with a luscious texture.

Vanilla Double Freight Handler Milk Stout 8%
A classic Burnt City stout, enhanced with two types of whole vanilla beans. Madagascan vanilla adds notes of vanilla ice cream cones, while Tahitian beans add a rich fruitiness. Full-bodied, chocolatey, and wonderfully decadent. Brewed with lactose.

Oktoberfest Lager 5.3%
Burnt City’s Oktoberfest Märzen celebrates the wonderful German tradition as respectfully as possible. Fancy German malts and hops were used in this flavorful, quaffable amber lager. Malt notes are prominent, with noble hops adding a gentle floral aroma.

Cherry Berry Berry Berlinerweiss 4%
Cherries, blueberries, and red raspberries by the truckload were added to this pleasantly tart berlinerweiss. Huge fruit flavors await…

Titan Walls Pale Ale 5%
Fresh-squeezed citrus and ripe tropical fruit hoppiness with a balanced finish. Laid back and hoppy at the same time.

 

Party Hard Sports Drink: Blue Thunder 5%
Thirst is an eternal enemy, so arm yourself with the magic you need to blast it into oblivion. Party Hard Sports Drink: Blue Thunder is the first hard sports drink to pack in bespoke electrolytes to send your thirst to the icy cold pits of hell. Flavored with real fruit juices and colored with blue spirulina, once you try it, there’s no going back.

Who’s a Hazy Boi? Double Dry Hopped IPA 7.3%
Awwww, who’s a hazy little boi??!! Who wants a little Simcoe and Citra treat??? No need to play dead, or roll over, we’re giving you a nice little hazy surprise in your bowl today. You’ll get your daily dose of juicy fruits evened out by just a whisker of grapefruit & pine bitterness (It’s still an IPA after all). Best enjoyed super fresh while walking on your hind legs or sitting pretty.

Sonny Sunflower Seed Munich Helles 4.7%
Jerome and Shari honeymooned in Europe. During the last leg of their trip they stayed in a hotel in Munich that had a brewery in the basement. It was there Shari fell in love with the Helles style. When they returned she requested that Jerome come up with a recipe. Shari also loves sunflowers, and Jerome recently heard about brewing with sunflower seeds, so that’s what he did. Crisp, subtly hopped with Loral hopped, and smooth malt flavor with a wheat malt like note from the sunflower seeds. We recommend drinking this outside on a hot, sunny day.

Underbite Series: PMA Gose w/ Peach, Mango, and Acai 4.4%
The Underbite Series: Our base Gose with Pilsner and wheat malt to add a smooth mouthfeel, Pink Himalayan Salt, and fermented with Voss Kveik. We love our Goses so much, we decided to make a whole series. Please enjoy the 3rd version highlighting Peach, Mango, and Acai.

Stevie Belgian Golden Strong Ale 10%
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.

Clark Hazy IPA 6%
Well I’ll tell you something. This is no longer a vacation. It’s a quest. It’s a quest for hops. You’re gonna have hops, and I’m gonna have hops… We’re all gonna have so many f’n hops we’re gonna need plastic surgery to remove our damn smiles! Amarillo, Mosaic, and Citra make for a citrus-forward hazy IPA that will make you feel like you’re on your best summer vacation.

Pom Morello Pomegranate and Morello Cherry Gose 4.4%
The winner of our 2019 District BOO Yards Contest! Pom Morello, also known as Bowie the Pomeranian, is a tart Pomegranate and Morello Cherry Gose with Pink Himalayan salt.

Vinnie Bavarian Amber 5.6%
Dedicated to Vinnie, aka Young Vincent, aka Brown Dog. This beer was a happy accident, (not like the ones he leaves on the carpet). This malt forward beer was an experiment from playing with different German yeasts. Much like Vinnie, this beer doesn’t quite fit in. Not quite a Munich Dunkel, and not quite a Dunkelweiss, but still holds a special place in our hearts.

Elias Dry-Hopped Wheat Ale 4.7%
What a year it has been for our pup, Elias! From those cherished happy giggles and smiles, to the not-so-fun sleepless nights of screaming and crying, there’s no doubt this little one has made the last year a little hazy. We decided to take this beer in a different direction this year and make it a “little hazy” too. This one comes to you from a very special place in our hearts, and we hope you enjoy it.
