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

Fruit Shop Pomegranate Mango

Sour - Gose - Fruited

4.3% ABV

Enjoy our thick and pulpy Gose with an insane amount of pomegranate and mango purée and just a hint of milk sugar and vanilla. Inspired by The Answer’s Joose series, this is the ‘new beer’ that gets younger drinkers all hot and bothered.

As Flies To Wanton Boys

IPA - New England

7.0% ABV

We used 9 POUNDS per barrel of Galaxy and Citra in this insanely impractical IPA. Expect notes of passion fruit, candied oranges, and spun sugar on a fluffy, decadently rich body.

No Duh

Lager - Japanese Rice

4.6% ABV

Well it’s official: we don’t care what our Untappd scores are anymore. So take your best shot – this beer is made for drinking, not thinking, and we’re good at both!

Swift Dragons

Farmhouse Ale - Saison

6.4% ABV

Mosaic and Triskal hops accent a bright and feisty beer. Notes of lemongrass, berries, hay, citrus weave a lovely spell.

Secret Beach


5.5% ABV

Our take on the classic Bavarian wheat beer, a grain bill of malted wheat and barley with a pinch of light crystal provides the simple canvas on which the essential yeast strain works its magic. Notes of banana bread and clove mingle with a soft, creamy body.


Traditional Ale

5.3% ABV

A no-boil ale brewed in the ancient Northern European farmhouse tradition. Rich with proteins from barley, wheat, and oats. Fermented with Kveik and hopped with Cashmere, Mosaic, Ekuanot, and El Dorado.

Some Other Star

IPA - New England

7.5% ABV

El Dorado, Denali, Citra, and Mosaic shine here with notes of tangerine, honeydew, and ripe berries. A soft, juicy, hazy treat we think you’ll enjoy.

Radiation Vibe

IPA - American

7.5% ABV

This easy drinker offers stone fruit esters of apricots and peaches on the nose. Flavors of candied oranges and sweet malt are balanced by a firm bitterness, leading to a dry and refreshing finish.

Local Flutter

IPA - Imperial / Double New England

8.7% ABV

Citra, Denali, and Amarillo offer aromas of peach and candied orange while fluffy oats, wheat, and Pilsner malts float softly underneath. The juice is abundant!

We Are Verbs!

Pale Ale - American

5.9% ABV

Oats and wheat feature prominently in this hazy take on a classic style. We used too many hops here, nearly 8# per barrel, but the result is a nifty little ale that we like a lot!

Urbana Champaign

Pilsner - German

5.1% ABV

Fresh, grassy, and peppery with notes of bread dough, lemon sugar, and honey.

Escape Wheel

Stout - Irish Dry

4.2% ABV

A proper pint of dry and roasty ale served on nitro, of course. This is a light and sessionable beer with notes of iced coffee, bitter chocolate, and a bright tangy finish.

Lighted Windows On the Snow

Belgian Tripel

9.5% ABV

An elegant and celebratory beer that pairs perfectly with holiday meals. Complex flavors of peppery spices, candied oranges, and floral hops combine to make this a dangerously drinkable indulgence.
