Surly Hell Munich Lager
Surly Brewing Company, Brooklyn Center Minnesota
Hell is German for light. A pale-gold lager with bready malt aromas and flavors, floral hop aroma, and a balanced finish.
Finally, a Surly beer my German mother will drink. She says this one tastes like a bier from back home. Not unlike a Zwickel Bier from Germany, Hell is not filtered and fermented with lager yeast. American hops takes a back seat to the Pils malt sweetness and fresh bread aroma. The color is well… hell (Deutsch for light). It’s fiendishly drinkable, and you don’t have to sell your soul to get another.

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

Hofbrau Hefe Weizen
Hofbrauhaus, Munchen Germany

But even without a monopoly, Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is a really special kind of beer. Characterized by its sparkling rich foam and distinguished by its unforgettable refreshing and fruity taste. It is brewed according to an ancient tradition and offers an alcoholic content of approximately 5.1% by volume. Savor the pure, refreshing enjoyment!
FOR OVER 400 YEARS A CLASSIC FAVORITE!ABV: 5.4% | .5L | $7
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

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

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

Dark / Strong Ales
Lagunitas Brown Shugga'
Lagunitas Brewing Co. - Chicago, IL
Originally a failed attempt at our 1997 batch of Olde GnarlyWine Ale resulting in an all-new-beer-style we like to call... Irresponsible. We believe this Special Ale is something unique. Feeding brown cane sugar to otherwise cultured brewery yeast is a'kin to feeding raw shark to your gerbil. It is unlikely to ever occur in nature without human intervention. And it looks weird besides. But it has happened and now it's too late.ABV: 10% | 9oz | $5.5
Ballast Point Victory At Sea
Ballast Point Brewing Company - San Diego, CA
Our Ballast Point Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. We infused this robust porter with vanilla and San Diego’s own Caffe Calabria coffee beans. The subtle roasted notes and minimal acidity of the cold brewed coffee, balances perfectly with the sweet caramel undertones of the malt, creating a winning combination for your palateABV: 10% | 9oz | $5.5
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.
Dogfish Head Wood-Aged Bitches Brew
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery INC. - Milton, Delaware
The Bitches is back, only this time we aged it our oak and Palo tanks! An off-centered twist on our classic Bitches Brew, Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is still the same bold, dark, Imperial Stout you know and love!
Originally brewed in honor of the 40th anniversary of the release of Miles Davis’ 1970 landmark Jazz fusion record Bitches Brew, our ‘remix’ is a gustatory tribute to that analog masterpiece.
Much like Jazz fusion, which blends different musical styles, our Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is a fusion of three threads of Imperial stout aged on oak and one thread of Tej - a native African honey beer - aged on Palo.
The result is a roasty brew chock full of aromas of vanilla, licorice and chocolate, while you’ll find notes of sweet roast coffee with every sip. It’s slightly dry in the mouthfeel with a mild bitterness that make it the perfect sipper.
Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione says Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is best when “sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album.” We like the sound of thatABV: 9% | 5oz | $9
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.

De Struise Brouwers - Oostvleteren, Belgium

La Trappe Quadrupel
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven, Berkel-Enschot, Netherlands
Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a, stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.ABV: 10% | 5oz | $9
Pipeworks Pineapple Bling
Piipeworks Brewing Co. - Chicago, IL
Pipeworks Brewing Company Pineapple Bling (10.5% alcohol by volume) is a Belgian Golden Strong Ale brewed with orange zest, lime juice and pineapple juice. Pineapple and lime aromas run neck and neck with orange aromas close behind. Malt aromas are medium low and hop aromas are low. As the glass fills hazy gold a white cap grows and disappears in the wink of an eye. Streams of rapidly rising bubbles fill the glass. Lime leads on the tongue with pineapple and orange nipping at its heals. The added fruit control the flavors and the Belgian yeast provides the texture while the hops provide a bitter, balancing finish. The beer's complexity and layers cover the alcohol well as a gentle warming stealthily creeps over your face. The alcohol is smooth and not hot or harsh. The medium light bodied beer is effervescent and mildly tart from the fruit. This big alcoholic beer drinks like the cocktail you wished you had in college. It is big and bold and delightful and the intensity keeps you from drinking too muchABV: 10.5% | 9oz | $8
