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.

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.

Ya Filthy Animal
Holiday Sour
6.4% ABV

Inspired by our favorite mulled drinks of the holidays, Ya Filthy Animal is a Tart Red Ale brewed with mulling spices, black currants and plums. Brewed in collaboration with Emporium Arcade Bar. Keep the change.

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. 

Alley-Oop
Dunkel Lager
5.4% ABV

A rich dark lager with pronounced bready malt character and slight notes of chocolate and caramel, yet a refreshing finish.

Co-Sign
West Coast IPA
7.1% ABV

A West Coast-style IPA that pushes boundaries on hop bitterness, flavor and aroma while ultimately striking a balance with its malt base. Expect lots of citrus, grapefruit, and pine, followed by a touch of bready malt and a bone-dry finish. 

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.

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.
