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!

Proximal Barrel Aged Barleywine 13%
This graceful, English-style Barleywine spent over nine months in Route 12 Spirits rye barrels. Flavors of molasses, vanilla and toffee intertwine seamlessly with an alcoholic heat that lets you know you’re drinking a seriously big beer, but without overwhelming the palate.

Juice Trials Hazy IPA 7.0%
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.

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.

Villainous India Pale Ale 6.0%
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.

Pennyfarthing Pilsner 5%
This German-style Pilsner is crisp and refreshing with a brilliant golden hue that has a way of making you seriously thirsty. It manages to be at once sharp and delicate; the spicy bite of hops is bold, but not so bold that it overwhelms your palate or the light bread-like flavors, which give this style a clean, not-too-bitter finish.

Cayman Review Coconut Stout 7.8%
A stout in the summertime is an anachronism to some and essential to others. To make it just right for everyone, we kept this beauty vibing on the Caribbean with a touch of pineapple, a hint of coconut and some molasses in the kettle for that deep, rum-like flavor. Might go down easy, this is our Cayman Review.

Puffing Billy Brown Ale w/Cacao Nibs 6.9%
We love Browns. And you should too! Roasty malts and chocolaty flavors – what’s not to love? Ours is finished with cacao nibs to add another nuanced layer of chocolate aroma & flavor to the already complex interplay of this well-balanced ale.

Oktoberfiesta Märzen Lager 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.

Acid Test Peach Ginger 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 peach & ginger adds contrast and balance to the trip. Get ready to blast off.  

Burnt City Brewing

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

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

Fuzz of Jupiter Mixed-Ferment Peach Ale 6.5%
Peaches add an elegant fruitiness to this refreshing mixed-ferment ale. Subtle minerality with a mild peppery funk and vibrant acidity

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.

Twisted Fire Starter Dry-Hopped Brett Ale 5%
The first version of Twisted Fire Starter is a blend of a stainless steel mixed fermentation and a white wine barrel Brettanomyces fermentation with a Hallertauer Blanc dry-hop. Mango fruity notes, an understated funkiness, and a long citrus and melon finish make this a complex and highly drinkable beer.

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.

This is a Stout 4%
A classic, straightforward stout. High quality English malts give it roasty chocolate and coffee notes. Gently hopped with East Kent Golding hops.

Secret Trampoline Mixed Ferment Saison with Lemon 5.9%
Spontaneously fermented lemons and brettanomyces were added to a classic saison base and aged in Chardonnay barrels for several months. Secret Trampoline features poignant citrus notes and a bit of pleasant earthiness.

Rye Barrel Black Pit of Hatred Imperial Stout 13%
We took our thick, sticky imperial stout and aged it in Willett rye whiskey barrels. The result is rich, deeply nuanced, and bursting with flavors of chocolatey roast malt, dark fruit, oaky vanilla, and spicy rye. Available in extremely limited quantities.

Bourbon Barrel Golden Pit of Hatred Imperial Ale 12%
A paler take on our Black Pit of Hatred series, Golden Pit was brewed with orange blossom honey and the finest milk sugar we could get our hands-on. After spending a few months in Willett Bourbon barrels, this powerful beer has profound notes of sweet vanilla and fruity honey.

Bold Dog Beer Co.

Sunday Night Couch Cuddles India Pale Lager 4.7%
The official beer of #shotgunday! We wanted to make something extremely chuggable. We used the strawberry and citrus notes of Belma hops.  Cuddle up to this full flavored hoppy lager with your favorite furry friends!

Underbite Series: Black and Blue Gose w/ Blackberry, Black Currants, and Blueberries 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 2nd version highlighting Blackberry, Black Currants, and Blueberries

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.

Sammy Dry Hopped Pilsner 5.5% 
Sammy, our collaboration beer with Sam Adam’s. We wanted to create a blend of what we felt defines our breweries, hops and lagers. This dry hopped Pilsner is a crisp, and clean summer beer. Easy drinking with a fruit-forward nose, with hints of melon, citrus, and kiwi.
100% of the proceeds of this beer will go directly back to Accion Serving Illinois and Indiana.

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.

Tillmosa Mimosa-Inspired Wheat Ale 4.7%
Brunch is for your bestie, whether they walk on four legs or two. Tillmosa was brewed especially for bougie day drinking on patios and under umbrellas. We took Tilly and added orange and grape musk for an effervescent, easy drinking, wheat ale. We apologize it’s not bottomless.

Underbite Series: Fruit Punch Gose w/ blood orange, strawberry, and pineapple 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 blood orange, strawberry, and pineapple.

Divinations Coffee Milk Stout 7%
Divinations: (n) :the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.
Our coffee milk stout is brewed with lactose and an Ethiopian heirloom coffee bean from Passion House Roasters, with notes described as having bright coffee acidity and floral tasting notes. Balanced by the sweetness of the lactose, this beer has strong chocolate and caramel notes from the dark malts use in the grain bill.

Quolassus Belgian Quad with Molasses 9%
This Belgian Quad is rich, smooth and dangerous. Molasses adds to the complexity combined with the delicious blend of malt richness, dark fruit flavors, and spicy elements.

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.
