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.

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.

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.

Iron Curtain Baltic Porter 9%
Full-bodied.  Smooth.  Aged alcohol warmth.  Sweet malty, roasted flavor that stops short of burnt.  Medium to low bitterness.  Dark fruits, caramel, toffee or current flavors that add to the complexity.  Yeah, that sounds like what they would brew in the Baltics.  

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.

Maui Gold Citra Session IPA 4.5%
Mahalo! It’s summer – time to hang loose and you want a beer that’s gonna let you play all day. This session IPA fits that bill to a T. But you don’t want some watered-down, boring beer. So we brewed this one with a big dose of Citra hops for a bright grapefruit-melon-lime-tinged hop flavor and then added just the right amount of sweet pineapple for a balanced summer-sipper. So put your nice shades on and enjoy the hang.

 

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.

2020 has been declared the Year of the Brown Ale by most accredited beer experts, and we’re ready to jump on that bandwagon with this delectable malt-bomb. Brewed with the finest English malts and hops, The Next Big Thing is roasty, toasty, and chuggalicious.

Pterodactyl Deathscream DDH DIPA 8%

Galactic Juice Pillow Hazy IPA 7.3%
Australian Galaxy hops were added to the mix along with Citra and Amarillo to make this special version of Juice Pillow. It’s bursting with tropical and citrus goodness and don’t you forget about that luscious, pillowy mouthfeel! Contains milk sugar.

Retrofit Key Lime Radler 3.7%
Refreshing and easy-drinking as can be, our radler is made with key lime juice to give it a wonderful note of fresh citrus. Mildly sweet with a gentle touch of noble hops.

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.

Mango Lime Hard Soda 5%
This hard soda was made from turbinado sugar, mango and key lime juice, and filtered water. Pleasantly sweet and immensely refreshing.

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.

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.

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.

Elias Dry-Hopped German Wheat 4.8%
 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.
