Firestone Walker STiVO
Firestone Walker Brewing Company - Paso Robles, California
Originally brewed as a one-off collaboration with Russian River Brewing Company for the 2016 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival, STiVO is making a comeback for fans of new age hoppy pilsners. Limited draft-only release.
STiVO is an immaculately conceived mashup of Russian River’s STS pilsner and our own Pivo pilsner.
STiVO combines the best of both beers to create a hoppy pilsner that provides a unique combination of heft and drinkability. Ever since the original release of STiVO, fans have wondered if it would return—now it’s finally back for a limited time.
Lakefront Brewery, Inc. - Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Pours a brilliant blonde-gold with a white fluffy head. Biscuit and honey aromas from Vienna and Munich malts blend with herbal and spicy hop notes from Mount Hood and Czech Saaz hops. The medium body yields a robust malty-sweetness, while a mild, balanced hoppiness leads into the crisp finish.
Pairs well with spicy food, especially Cajun. A rounded hop flavor and crisp carbonation lift the spiciness of gumbo and jambalaya, while the substantial body stands up to the richness of dishes like étouffée.
Metropolitan Brewing, Chicago, IL
The kinetic beauty of spicy hops grabs you by the nose and lets you know: this is German-inspired beer. Flywheel is meant for bombastic celebrations of singing voices and clamoring mugs. But then, that first contented moment of happy hour is uniquely celebratory as well.ABV 5% | 12OZ | $5
Miller Brewing Co. Milwaukee Wisconsin
Miller Lite is the great tasting, less filling beer that created the American light beer category in 1975. Triple-hops brewed for great pilsner taste, Miller Lite is the only beer to win four gold awards in the World Beer Cup for best American-Style light lager (2006, 2002, 1998 and 1996). It also won the gold medal for best American-style Lager or Light Lager at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.ABV: 4.2% | 12oz | $4
Stiegl - Salzberg, Austria
"The naturally cloudy organic beer."
Only domestic ingredients from controlled biological cultivation are used in this amber-colored, natural and traditional beer specialty from Salzburg. When brewing this beer we add Laufener Landweizen to the blend – a fine ancient grain we grow on healthy land and malt ourselves at the Stiegl-Farm Wildshut. This completes the velvelty mild taste – an absolute delight.
Lakefront Riverwest Stein Amber Lager
Riverwest Stein Beer | Lakefront Brewery, Inc. Milwaukee Wisconsin
Our flagship beer, named after the hardworking neighborhood in which Lakefront Brewery was founded. Pours a brilliant amber with a bubbly off-white head. Aromas of American hops mingle with a slight floral character from the German lager yeast. A balanced maltiness with just a hint of sweetness dominates the flavor, with a crisp hop bite in the finish. A joy to drink; no wonder it's Milwaukee's favorite craft beer.ABV: 4.8% | 16oz | $7

Virtue Brut Cider
Virtue Cider, Fennville, Michigan
The Michigan harvest of apples starts in late summer, with the sun still bright and the leaves green. As autumn turns cool, trees turn brilliant orange, yellow, and red; and so do the apples. We use all sorts of Michigan apples grown on local family farms. The blend of these heirloom apples creates a complexity of flavor impossible to achieve with just a few varieties.
Michigan Harvest is crisp and tart, starting with the scent of the orchard, a hint of oak, and finishing with a touch of sweetness.
This cider celebrates apple harvest as well as the autumn's hearty cuisine. Try pairing with roast pig, aged cheddar, or traditional Thanksgiving fare.
Gregory Hall founded Virtue Cider in 2011. He is known for his 20-year tenure as brewmaster at the Goose Island Beer Company, having won 14 consecutive Great American Beer Festival medals and pioneered bourbon barrel-aged beer with Bourbon County Stout. In the spring of 2011, Hall left Goose Island and embarked on a two-month pilgrimage to study the craft of cider, touring and tasting at top cidermakers in England and France. He brought his extensive experience and innovative style to launch Virtue Cider first in the Roscoe Village neighborhood in Chicago. In 2013, Hall brought the cidermaking venture as close as possible to one of the United States' best apple-growing states of Michigan and launched Virtue Cider in Fennville, Michigan.ABV: 5% | 12oz | $5

Witbier wheat beer brewed with orange and coriander
Unibroue Blanche De Chambly Witbier
Unibroue, Quebec Canada
(White of Chambly) was the first bottle refermented ale produced by Unibroue. It is brewed from a blend of pale barley malt, wheat malt and unmalted wheat, to which we blend selected spices and hops. Blanche de Chambly is only partially filtered, retaining its natural cloud of yeast that is characteristic of the original white ales brewed during the Middle Ages.
With notes of dried orange peel and coriander seeds, this brew is a worthy representative of classic Belgian-style white wheat beers. To date, it has won more than 34 international medals, including being named “The World’s Best White Beer" on numerous occasions. Unibroue is proud to brew the most popular white beer in Quebec.ABV: 5% | 16oz | $7
Blonde golden, well rounded
Brouwerij De Smedt / Brouwerij Affligem, Opwijk, Belgium
This balanced and refreshing Blond has a dense head that sits atop a bright, golden body of beer. As the smooth taste of the first sip settles, the roundness of tropical fruit leads to a refreshing finish. On swirling, strong notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma flow freely.ABV: 6.8% | 12oz | $12
Golden Ale effervescent, complex & refreshing
Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV, Breendonk-Puurs, Belgium
Created by the Moortgat family, bottled Duvel is one of Belgium’s favorite ales. The secret of its success lies in using only best-quality ingredients, and in the well-balanced, very specific, complex brewing and refermentation process that takes over 90 days. After brewing and first fermentation – which takes about 30 days – the beer is tasted by the brewmaster and his staff. At this stage this beer is called “single-fermented.” Typical Duvel flavors and aromas are already emerging, but the beer is lower in alcohol and carbonation, and the taste is slightly lighter and crisper. This is only available in draft and is different from what is in the bottles.ABV: 6.8% | 9oz | $7
Kolsch light ale brewed with lager yeast

Bell's Two Hearted I.P.A.
Bell's Brewing Inc., Comstock, Michigan
This is the bench mark for an American I.P.A. Bell's Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.ABV: 7% | 16oz | $7.5
Pollyanna Lexical Gap Cask
Pollyanna Brewing Company, Lemont, IL

Dark / Strong Ales
Anchor Brewing Company, San Francisco, California
With deep black color, a thick, creamy head, rich chocolate, toffee and coffee flavors, and full-bodied smoothness, Anchor Porter is the epitome of a handcrafted dark beer.
A blend of specially roasted pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with our top-fermenting yeast, creates complexity without bitterness. The brew is hopped at a high rate, and naturally carbonated. The result is dark in the glass, but surprisingly light on the palate.
Anchor Porter became the first modern American porter style beer when it was introduced in 1972. Over 40 years later, our porter continues to reward those who look beyond its intimidating appearance to discover its smooth, full-bodied drinkability. Anchor Porter is the definitive American Porter.ABV: 5.6% | 12oz | $8.50
Bell's Cherry Stout
Bell's Brewery INC. - Comstock, MI
Tinted ruby-black, Cherry Stout gains its signature tartness from 100% Montmorency cherries grown in Michigan's Traverse City region.
Rather than doubling up on sweetness, this tart cherry varietal serves as a counterpoint to the warm, dark chocolate notes from the malt bill. Lightly hopped for balance, this stout is one of the cornerstones of our stout portfolio.ABV: 7% | 16oz | $9.5
Crystal Lake Nitro Stout
Crystal Lake Brewing Company, Crystal Lake, Illinois
Rich aromas of expresso and dark chocolate hang in the air, while flavors teeter between coffee, chocolate, sweet caramel and hints of dark fruit.
This is a big, full-bodied ale, dark and decadent, and one that you’ll find yourself falling hard for.
2015 Avery Uncle Jacob's Stout
Avery Brewing Co. - Boulder, CO
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey “Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1790 — 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest Bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!ABV: 14.9% | 5oz | $15
2016 Brickstone Dark Secret Raspberry Imperial Stout
Brickstone Brewey Bourbonnais Illinois

Alken Maes Grimbergen Dubbel
Brouwerij Alken-Maes, Belgium
This medium-bodied, red to dark brown colored ale has a malty sweetness and chocolate-like caramel aroma. A light hop flavor and/or aroma is acceptable. Dubbels are also characterized by low-medium to medium bitterness. No diacetyl is acceptable. Yeastgenerated fruity esters (especially banana) are appropriate at low levels. Head retention is dense and mousse-like. Chill haze is acceptable at low serving temperatures. Often bottle conditioned a slight yeast haze and flavor may be evident.ABV 6.5% | 10oz | $7
Chimay White Tripel
Bières de Chimay, Baileux Belgium
With its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer’s flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.
Brouwerij Huyghe Brewery - Belgium
Golden (or lightly veiled by the secondary fermentation in the bottle) with a fine head.
Scent: floral, green apples, a hint of sweetness and delicate hop aroma
Flavour: Resounding, sweet malt and a pleasant hop character by carefully selected hops. A fresh, rich and bitter aftertaste make this (unique) a real beer experience.
Dogfish Head Olde School
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, DE
Fermented with dates and figs, this smooth barleywine has a unique flavor.
The concept for this beer came from an old cellerman's manual Sam came across (for more on that, check out the video below).
At about 15% ABV, this beer is a great candidate for aging. Over time, the beer dries out and the pit fruit flavors come forward and the hops recede. Our recommendation? Grab a few bottles when you find it -- enjoy one now, and age the others for a bit. Let us know which you prefer!
