Beer

Some classics. Some rookies.

We always have those few staples you can depend on. But as a small brewery, you can also bet there’s something new to try. Come visit us and see for yourself.

On Tap Now

We brew small-batch beers every season, but not all of them get canned or bottled. Here’s a full list of what you can catch on draft in our taproom.

First Lager
Pilsner
5.1% ABV

We like to begin at the beginning. Lagers have been around for centuries, and this is our take on a classic: the Pilsner. With a foundation of Midwest malt plus plenty German hops, First Lager is both bright and refreshing. Great any time. Best with friends.

Ride or Die
Pale Ale
5.5% ABV

Ride or Die is a Pale Ale you can depend on — a bona fide fridge staple. Bright neon flavors of grapefruit and pine give way to a pleasantly soft malt base and a quick slice of balancing bitterness. Reliably tasty without a fuss.

Going Places
IPA
6.8% ABV

Going Places is an IPA for those on the up-and-up. A vibrant combo of new-wave hops offers fresh citrus, tropical fruit and sticky pine with a prickly finish, putting this hoppy bev on the path ahead. Let’s get it.

Table Salt
Gose-style Sour
4.3% ABV

An exceedingly refreshing Gose-style sour ale brewed with French grey sea salt, lemongrass, lime leaf and cardamom. Huge lemon-lime aroma with balanced tartness and salinity alongside a pillowy body.

Dorkmunder
Export-style Lager
5.5% ABV

Dorkmunder is an Export-style Lager inspired by those brewed in Dortmund, Germany. Slightly stronger than similar styles of the region, this lager has a balanced malt and hop profile, medium body and a floral, crisp finish.

Change of Pace
IPA
7.1% ABV

Our most hop-forward IPA yet. Brewed with Mosaic and Loral hops, exhibiting huge tropical fruit and bright citrus notes, with just a hint of dank. 

Great News
Saison
5.6% ABV

Great News is a Saison well-equipped for both the dinner table and a night out with friends. A classic fermentation profile of fruit, pepper, and citrus is combined with a slightly elevated hop presence that brightens both aroma and flavor, making this an all-purpose drinker.

Big Cold Brew
Imperial Coffee Stout
9% ABV

Big Cold Brew is an Imperial Coffee Stout — the winterized version of its summertime counterpart. Added weight and richness set the stage for large doses of coffee, with each year showcasing a new selection.

Vibe Check
DDH IPA
7.2% ABV

Vibe Check is an IPA for the modern day. Brewed with new-wave Idaho 7 and Sabro hops, this beer is packed with layers of tropical fruit and citrus flavors, laced with a pleasantly piney bitterness for balance. You good?

24:37 Red IPA
Red IPA
6.5% ABV

A blend of roasted malts give this IPA its red hue and malty backbone, while the addition of Sorachi Ace hops offer a floral, lemongrass accent. Named after the length of a day on Mars.


Bottles & Cans

Our team brews and packages all our beer at our brewery on Milwaukee Ave, which we think is pretty neat. Along with the mainstay cans that are available all year, we love brewing limited special releases.
