Around the Bend Beer Co.

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.

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.

Delilah Jones Pomegranate Amber Ale 6.3%
Evocative of a bygone era, like that tumble-down shack in Big Foot county, this gorgeous Amber Ale is a real bounty; light toast and toffee, medium caramel and full body. The addition of sweet and piquant pomegranate juice darkens the hue and elevates the flavor that any brown-eyed woman would be sure to savor.

Uncle Ebenezer Dark Lager 5.4%
This dark pseudo-lager uses Lutra yeast to ferment clean and clear. A creamy, tan head tops the chocolate-brown liquid with noble hop aroma complimenting the sweetness of Munich malt. Rich, complex flavors reminiscent of roasted chestnuts, caramel, and toast abound resolving with a low level bitterness and a medium-dry finish.

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!

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.

Vixen Pistachio Cream Ale w/Cinnamon  5.0%
Like Vera? You’ll love her cousin, Vixen, who’s visiting for the Holidays. 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 Cinnamon for that warming, gang’s-all-gathered for the Holidays 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 rockin’ round the Christmas tree all night!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bourbon Barrel Black Pit of Hatred 13%
Black Pit of Hatred is a furious, yawning chasm of roasty despair fermented with the angriest Hornindal kveik we could find. This version was aged to perfection in Willett bourbon barrels. Consume it before it consumes you.

Spruce Moose Pilsner with Spruce Tips 5.1%
Brewed for the cooler months, this German-style pilsner features spruce tips from colorful Colorado. 

Juice Pillow Hazy IPA 7.4%

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.

Queen Victoria Hazy IPA 6.6%
Our latest Kveik Hazy IPA! Queen Victoria is a combination of orange citrus, candied cherry, and red currant notes from the Julius and Barbe Rouge whirlpool hop additions. We topped it off with a double dose of Vic Secret and a touch of Nelson Sauvin in the dry-hop and fermented with Espe Kveik. It’ll leave you feeling like royalty.

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.

You serious Clark? Hazy IPA 6%
Oh, the silent majesty of a winter’s morn; the clean, cool chill of the holiday air; and a bulldog in a bathrobe, emptying a bunch of hops into hazy IPA. You serious about the Amarillo, Comet, and Mosaic hops in this Advent Holiday Treat? Happy Holidays from Jerome, Shari, and Elias!
