Now Open!

Our taproom serves beer brewed onsite that’s made the hard way – in small batches by hand – reflecting our homebrew roots and paying tribute to a wide variety of influences.

We hope to nurture a local community of craft beer enthusiasts at our comfortable Lake Zurich location. Our menu features an eclectic variety of beers showcasing the amazing range of flavors that a few simple ingredients can display when subjected to the magic of fermentation. We also offer a number of wines, ciders, sodas, and snacks. And you’re always welcome to order in from any of our neighborhood restaurants.

Stop by for a pint and enjoy the live-edge bar, the long communal tables, or the cozy lounge that features couches and a fireplace. New beers will be tapped often, and we’ll feature live music, trivia nights, food trucks, and yoga on a regular basis.

It’s a fine day for drinking beer!

Our Beer

Puckerlemon Weirdo

Sour - Dry Hopped Sour

7.1% ABV

We put our Foeder beer into neutral whiskey barrels with 5 pounds of Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Ekuanot dry hops. The resulting intense acidity and bright, lemony fruit is not for the faint of heart.

Hype’s Kryptonite

Pilsner - Other

5.7% ABV

We used four ingredients to make this style, which was all the rage with whalezbros in 1842.

Fool’s Errand Brewing

Porter - American

5.8% ABV

English yeast conjures velvety cocoa and creamy coffee notes from the UK crystal and chocolate malts in this old-school porter. There’s nothing new or trendy about this beer – it just tastes good!

Barrel Aged Lighted Windows

Belgian Tripel

9.7% ABV

This is our winter ale aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for eight weeks. Expect creamy vanilla, a hint of whiskey and a light, spicy Belgian finish.

Fruit Fog

Experimental IPA

6.7% ABV

Multiple yeasts were used simultaneously to ferment this unique and fruity IPA. We get orange, apricot, and a slight bubblegum sweetness. No fruit was harmed making this beer. Cheers!

Tuba Solo

IPA - New England

7.6% ABV

800 pounds of barley malt, oats and wheat went into this new school IPA. We also used over 40 pounds of Citra, El Dorado, Ekuanot, and Azacca between the whirlpool and three separate dry hop additions. It’s massively fruity, rich, and unusually smooth.

Impossible Object

Lager - Vienna

5.6% ABV

Inspired by the seemingly endless northern summer days, this crisp and malty lager is offered in the dead of winter to remind us of the changes yet to come. It’s an illusion we’ll take any day!

The Palm Fronds of Our Victories

Stout - Other

9.2% ABV

Here is our Russian Stout reconfigured with Ethiopian coffee from the green hills of Africa, Vietnamese cinnamon, Peruvian cacao, Madagascar vanilla, and Mexican pasilla chiles. A movable feast in a glass!

Barrel Aged Gravity’s Mistress

Stout - Oatmeal Stout Aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrel

6.2% ABV

Four months in wood from Kentucky (thanks Greg!) have imparted sweet vanilla, char, and a noticeable bourbon heat to the original chocolate and espresso tones. Try this and skip dessert!

Sister Havana

Stout - Russian Imperial

9.2% ABV

We get rich espresso, powdered chocolate, dark berry fruits reminiscent of vintage port, and hints of tobacco in this big stout. It finishes dry and surprisingly crisp with a warming alcohol glow. Take your time and the flavors will open up and evolve in the glass.

Lighted Windows On the Snow

Belgian Tripel

9.5% ABV

Trappist yeast transforms continental Pilsner malts and noble hops into a spicy, fruity, dangerously sublime libation. Like a long train ride home in the frosty dark, this one is for reminiscence and contemplation.

Tart’s Desire

Sour - Ale

6.0% ABV

A tart and jammy fruit bomb soured with organic Greek yogurt and aged on 250 pounds of raspberry, blackberry, and boysenberry purée. Sweet, tart, and delicious.

An amazing six piece, three variety bacon flight. A little heat and a little sweet, how can you resist?!

Epic Pork Rinds

Pork skins are the perfect crunchy salty snack to enjoy with beer or wine.
