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.

Swift
IPA
6.8% ABV

Swift is an IPA brewed with balance and brevity in mind. Bright notes of pine and tangerine citrus play against a firm malt profile, tied together with even-keel bitterness. An IPA for all occasions.

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.

Clover Club
Raspberry Sour
6.2% ABV

Clover Club is a Sour Ale inspired by the pre-Prohibition cocktail of the same name. Brewed with raspberries and botanicals, this bright pink beverage is tart and fruity, accented by a dry and herbaceous finish.

Ixnay
Unfiltered Pilsner
5.5% ABV

Ixnay is a Pilsner we’ve left unfiltered, lending more body and raw noble hop character to this classic style. Earthy spice and a hint of citrus combine with a rounded base of bready malt and a strikingly clean finish.

Just In Time
IPA
6.3% ABV

A punchy, tropical IPA hopped with Mosaic, El Dorado and Idaho 7. Big notes of papaya, stone fruit and pineapple.

Ultra Glow
Dry-hopped Saison
5.9% ABV

Ultra Glow is a radiant Dry-hopped Saison that highlights a medley of citrusy hops against the backdrop of a lean malt base and our house Belgian yeast. Fruity and bright with a pillowy body and zippy finish.

Cold Brew
Session Coffee Ale
4.5% ABV

Cold Brew is borne out of our love of iced coffee in the summertime. Subdued dark malts lay the foundation for heavy doses of coffee, resulting in a beer as refreshing and tasty as its inspiration. Brewed in collaboration with Metric Coffee.

LSD Pale Ale
Pale Ale
5% ABV

This nimble ripper, brewed in collaboration with Land and Sea Dept., packs the big punch of Ekuanot and Dr. Rudi hops in a low-key Pale Ale form. With stone fruit and pine at the core, a soft body and balanced bitterness tether its eccentric side.

Electric Jewel
Wild Ale w/ Pawpaw
6.2% ABV

Oak-aged Wild Ale re-fermented with over 200 lbs of fresh local pawpaws that were peeled and puréed in-house. Vibrant mango and lemon-lime citrus character with medium acidity.

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.
