Sinister Minister- Belgian Style Quadrupel- 10.5% ABV, 15 IBU- 12 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

A rich and warming strong, Belgian ale brewed with a bit of Munich Malt and Dark Crystal Malt for a rich malt character with notes of toasted bread and toffee. Dark Candi Syrup adds dark fruit and rum notes that pair well with the fruitiness and spiciness from the Belgian yeast.

IPA/Hoppy

717- Pale Ale- 5.4% ABV, 35 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Brewed in collaboration with the Cicero Firefighters Local 717. A portion of the proceeds from this beer go to the 717’s non profit foundation which supports first responders and members of the community in need. This easy drinking Pale Ale is brewed with Citra and Cashmere hops for a bold citrus character with notes of tropical fruits and fresh herbs, and enough malt backbone to keep the beer well balanced.

Cranken Sie Hop- German Hopped IPA- 6% ABV, 50 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Each batch of Crank It Hop features different hops. This batch features 3 newer German Hops (Manderina Bavaria, Huell Melon, and Halertau Blanc) that have a very fruit forward character (citrus, melon, strawberry, pineapple, grape) more similar to American and Southern Hemisphere varieties than typical German varieties.

Crank It Dank- West Coast Style IPA- 7% ABV, 60 IBU16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

West Coast IPAs are typically brewed to showcase hops with very little malt character. Our version is brewed with a very simple malt bill of Pale and Pilsner malt and a bit of sugar to dry the beer out. It is aggressively hopped with Ekuanot, Citra and Mosaic. These are newer hop varieties that are bred to have a strong, pungent aroma and flavor often described as “dank”.

Crank It Hype- New England Style IPA- 7% ABV, 25 IBU- 16 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

Fuller in body and less bitter than a traditional IPA but our version stops short of being sweet like a lot of examples, keeping the beer more drinkable. 4+ pounds per barrel of hops are used, all of which are added in the whirlpool and as dry hops. This extracts less bitterness from the hops, and gives the beer a “juicy” hop character and the trademark “hazy” appearance.

Prediction?…Pain!- Imperial IPA- 8.5% ABV, 85 IBU- 12 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

More balanced than a lot of IIPAs with a focus more on flavor and aroma hops than bitterness. Hopped with Ekuanot, Simcoe and Mosaic. These hops create a complex blend of flavors including citrus, tropical fruit, berry, passion fruit, peach, and pine.

Lil’ Pain- Session IPA- 4.7% ABV, 35 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

This version of Prediction?…Pain! Is brewed with a lot less malt to be an easy drinking quencher. We used the same hop varieties, and the same amount of aroma and dry hops as regular Pain. Yes you read that right, this beer uses the same amount of flavor/aroma hops as our Imperial IPA resulting in a huge hop aroma and flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

Light

Brixie’s Lager- Premium Lager- 5.3% ABV, 13 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Drink in the tradition of this bright golden lager brewed to honor the history of Brixie’s, the former home of our Brookfield location. Brewed with Pilsner malt, Special Aromatic malt, and a combination of traditional Saaz and El Dorado a newer American hop, for a complex yet, refreshing flavor and slightly dry finish.

Imperial L’Oak-O- Mexican Lager- 5.5%, 9 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

This light and extremely drinkable lager will have you wish you were sitting on the beach. Brewed with Pilsner malt, Corn, and a bit of Vienna malt for a bit of complexity and sweetness.

Hefe’nother- German Hefeweizen- 5.5% ABV, 14 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

A light and refreshing beer brewed with German Pilsner and wheat malts. The traditional German Weizen yeast provides the spicy and fruity character often described as banana and clove.

Farmer’s Daughter- Saison- 6% ABV, 23 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Saison is a traditional “farmhouse” ale brewed in Belgium and France. The yeast gives it its distinctive citrusy character and its dry, earthy spiciness. It is brewed using Pilsner, Wheat and Special Aromatic malts and Czech Saaz hops.

Dark

Nobody’s Alt But Mine- Dusseldorf Style Altbier- 5.5% ABV, 31 IBU16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Altbier is a dark, German ale traditionally brewed in Dusseldorf. It is fermented at cooler temperatures for a clean malt character similar to German lagers. It is malt forward with notes of toasted bread, toffee, and coco but has enough hop presence to give the beer a crisp finish without being sweet. 

Udderly Black- Milk Stout- 5.3% ABV, 20 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

A blend of roasted malts give the beer its rich chocolate and coffee character. The body and sweetness are provided by crystal malts and the addition of Lactose (Milk Sugar) which is not fermented by beer yeast.

Savage Oak (Sour/Wild)–  More info on Savage Oak

Straw- Foeder Aged Brett Saison- 6% ABV, 23 IBU- 11 oz $6, 5 oz $3

Fermented with Belgian Saison yeast and then aged for a year in an Oak Foeder with our custom blend of fruit forward Brettanomyces. The Saison yeast and Brett produce a strong fruitiness with notes of tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), citrus, cherry, berries, a mild earthy funk, and a slightly tart, dry finish.

Passion Fruit Straw- Foeder Aged Brett Saison- 6% ABV, 23 IBU- 11 oz $7, 5 oz $3.5

After Foeder aging, this version has an additional aging in stainless with real Passion Fruit juice. This allows the simple sugars to ferment, adding complexity, and preventing the beer from becoming sweet.

Mango Blanc- Foeder Aged Brett Berliner Weisse- 4.5% ABV- 11 oz $7, 5 oz $3.5

Our take on the classic, German style, sour, wheat beer is co-fermented with Lactobacillus bacteria and a blend of fruit forward Brettanomyces and then aged in an Oak Foeder. The result is a more complex version of the style with a smooth but noticeable sourness and notes of tropical and stone fruit, citrus, oak, and a mild funk. After Foeder aging, this version has an additional aging in stainless with real Mango juice. This allows the simple sugars to ferment, adding complexity, and preventing the beer from becoming sweet.

Cherry Lime Blanc- Foeder Aged Brett Berliner Weisse- 4.5% ABV- 11 oz $7, 5 oz $3.5

After Foeder aging, this version has an additional aging in stainless with real, Montmorence Cherry, and Key Lime juice. This allows the simple sugars to ferment, adding complexity, and preventing the beer from becoming sweet.
