2 Fools Cider, Naperville, IL

Tart Cherry Cider - This unique cider combines a dry cider base with tart Michigan cherry juice. Pouring a lovely shade of red, this snappy cider features an unexpectedly creamy mouthfeel. A refreshing departure from sweeter fruited cider and a cider that fans of sour beer will love.

Rose Cider - English Style Cider, rose hugh made from Michigan Blueberries.

Short Fuse Brewing Company, Schiller Park, IL

Impending Doom – Imperial Stout, 10.5% ABV, Dark, rich and velvety mouthfeel comes from a hefty portion of roasted barley. Using a blend of American hops to balance the heavy grain bill releases a fresh aroma of pine and herb to pair with the dark cocoa aroma.

Miskatonic Brewing Company, Darien, IL

The Craven - Dry Stout · 5.3% ABV A bold roasted, yet subtle, malt profile. Rich and satisfying, an entire case of lemons is peeled and infused with the rind to give it a citrus twist. Our dry Irish Stout has a bold roasted, yet subtle, malt profile.

4204 Main Street Brewing Company, Belleville, IL

Two Hop - IPA · 7.2% ABV This West Coast Style India Pale Ale Features Legacy and Cascade hops. Dry floral hop notes upfront with a clean citrus hop finish.

Church Street Brewing Company, Itasca, IL

Tale of the Shony – Scottish Ale · 5.1% ABV Chocolate and roasted barley malts contribute to this dark-colored brew, rounded out by notes of sweet caramel and mellow roast. Robust, yet drinkable, this beer can be enjoyed in the cold months of winter or the dog days of summer.

Brimstone, IPA · 6.8% ABV Brimming with Cascade aroma, giving this tangerine-beauty a fruity and refreshing nose. Large quantities of late addition hops contribute to the high IBUs, creating a bold bitterness that’s rounded out by notes of citrus and grapefruit with a slightly dry hoppy finish.

Pipeworks Coffee End of Days, Milk Stout, 10.5% ABV, 22oz bottles, $11.99
Milk stout with coffee, cacao, vanilla, chilies and cinnamon added

Pipeworks Wink Wink, IPA, 7.0% ABV, 22oz bottles, $7.99
IPA brewed with Vic Secret Hops

Pipeworks Idaho 7, Double IPA · 10.0% ABV, 22oz bottle, $9.99
The Idaho 7 shadow warrior brings incredibly powerful notes of papaya and lemongrass to the epic battle against all things bland!   This merciless mercenary high kicks tropical aromas out from these suds! This is the second time they’ve used this hop…they were stunned by it then, and they’re incredibly stunned by it now!”

Solemn Oath Wonderful & Strange, Double dry hopped IPA, 6.3% ABV, 4pk/16oz cans, $15.99
This ripper packs your beak with loads of dank, resinous redolence reminiscent of your inaugural visit to Native Roots, Boulder.

Allagash Hibernal FluxusMilk Stout · 7.5% ABV, 750ml, $17.99
Its black body and brown foam are the result of a grain bill containing: 2-row malted barley, multiple roasted malts, Munich malt, and local oats.

Two Brothers Pinball, American Pale Ale · 5.4% ABV, now available in 12pk/12oz cans, $14.99
From the moment Pinball is shot out of the can, this Pale Ale takes your taste buds on a flavorful ride. Bounced between bumpers of tropical and citrus fruit, Pinball perfectly rides the rail between hoppy and sweet.

Stone Tangerine Express, IPA · 6.7% ABV, 6pk/12oz cans, $11.99
They use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — they judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). They’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. They like their IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.

Great Lakes Blackout, Imperial Stout · 9.0% ABV, 4pk/12oz bottles, $11.99
This strong, rich brew originated from recipes that British brewers tailored for the czars and czarinas of the Russian Imperial court. Imperial Stout with rich malt body and bold hop flavor.

Great Lakes Conway’s Irish Ale, Irish Red Ale · 6.5% ABV, $9.99
A malty Irish ale with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt.

Lagunitas Sumpin’Easy, Wheat Ale · 5.7% ABV, 12pk/12oz cans, $17.99
A healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops to create a super smooth and velvety ale with a fruit and resin-y- finish like biting into a freshly picked peach. Easy!

Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown, American Strong Ale · 9.75% ABV, $11.99
They brewed this especially bitter ale in remembrance of the 2005 St Patrick’s Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights.
