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
Virtue Cider, Fennville, Michigan
We are pouring this from the bottle!
In Normandy, France, cider has been made on the farm for over a thousand years. Apples were carried from orchard to barn by cart, drawn by a big, grey horse--a percheron. The apples were milled and pressed into juice through straw--driven by that same horse--then fermented with wild yeast in used wine barrels. The resulting farm cider, or cidre fermier, was rustic and complex, with notes of both the farm and barrel. Percheron Cidre Fermier is dedicated to the big, beautiful horse of Normandy. Like its French cousin, it bares the unmistakable scent of the farm, a strong body, and a gentle finish.ABV:6.8% | 9oz | $12.5

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
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
Fruit Beer addition of fruit
Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck, Emelgem Belgium

ABV: 6.1% | 16oz | $7.5
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

Mahalo! It’s summer – time to hang loose and you want a beer that’s gonna let you play all day. This session IPA fits that bill to a T. But you don’t want some watered-down, boring beer. So we brewed this one with 100% Citra hops for a bright grapefruit-melon-lime-tinged hop flavor and then added just the right amount of sweet pineapple for a balanced summer-sipper. So put your nice shades on and enjoy the hang.ABV: 4.5% | 16oz | $7.5

Pollyanna Brewing Company, Lemont, IL

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
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.
St. Bernardus Brouwerij, Watou, Belgium
The St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, the nec plus ultra of our brewery. Abbey ale brewed in the classic ’Quadrupel’ style of Belgium’s best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It’s a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.ABV: 10% | 9oz | $13
