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

Cloud Proper

IPA - New England

7.4% ABV

A farmhouse yeast from Norway and lots of English oat malt make our take on this NEIPA truly unique. Expect a creamy, fruity pour with a dank and spicy counterpunch.

Knockabout

Table Beer

4.4% ABV

Our version of the everyday, knockabout beer that Europeans have enjoyed for centuries. We swapped in lager yeast and some fruity hops to make it our own, but the basic idea of having a few still applies!

Secret Beach

Hefeweizen

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.

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.

Hazy Apostasy

IPA - New England

7.8% ABV

Our first collaboration beer, brewed with our friends at Scorched Earth in Algonquin. Next time we brew with these guys, we’ll be using more canoe paddles and less efficient mash tuns!

Lost In the See Through

IPA - Imperial / Double

9.1% ABV

Malty in the no-coast style, but soft and fruity like out east. This DIPA is boozy, sweet, and reminiscent of tangerines, clementines, and orange juice. Sip responsibly!

Springs Eternal

Witbier

5.3% ABV

This Belgian style is known for its creamy body and hints of spice, citrus, and floral perfume.

Venetian Night

Saison / Farmhouse Ale

5.0% ABV

This farmhouse-style ale is bright with flavors of lemons, oranges, hay, and water crackers.

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!

Tart’s Desire

Sour - Ale

6.0% ABV

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

Epic Pork Rinds

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