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

Gose With Pomegranate

Sour - Gose

4.3% ABV

Here’s our Gose with pomegranate purée added – tart and delicious!

Magic Goofball

Stout - Other

10.5% ABV

A blend of Heaven Hill barrel-aged and new Russian Stouts aged on sweets and spices, this beer offers impressions of chocolate, raisins, pepper heat, vanilla, whiskey, oak, and sweet cream.

Cherry Puckerlemon

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

From stainless to Foeder to wine barrel, this beer took 16 months to reach your glass. Flavors of tart cherries, baking spices, oak vanillins, and a hint of earthy Brett combine in an elegant display of mixed fermentation.

Imperial Candy Squeeze

IPA - Milkshake

9.3% ABV

Quick Bright Things

IPA - New England

7.5% ABV

We used 5.5 pounds per barrel of Citra, Mosaic, El Dorado, and Loral in the whirlpool and multiple dry hoppings. The soft and juicy result is evocative of tangerines, passion fruit, and floral perfume.

Have Pun, Will Travel

Sour - Gose

4.3% ABV

Just say ‘GOES-uh’ for a light, tart, lemony wheat beer that’s been around since at least the Middle Ages. A hint of salinity complements the doughy body, making this a refreshing, albeit paronomastically afflicted, beer.

Canadian Girlfriend


5.6% ABV

A dark lager fermented with German yeast, this style deserves more love. It’s subtly roasty, with notes of cocoa powder and milk chocolate on a crisp, clean body.

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.

Barrel Aged Sister Havana

Stout - Russian Imperial

10.5% ABV

Brewed in October 2017, this big stout spent 10 months in a freshly dumped Heaven Hill barrel. There is a touch of whiskey on the nose, but also savory oak, chocolate, and molasses. As it warms we pick up lots of dark chocolate, along with espresso, red fruits, bourbon, and a hint of tobacco. This one was worth the wait!

Catchy Hook

IPA - Brut

6.0% ABV

A new style that’s fermented completely dry, akin to ‘lite’ beers. Where we part ways with BMC is the use of 5 pounds per barrel of Denali, Hallertau Blanc, and Azacca hops. Fruity, hazy, and incredibly refreshing, you’ll want to replay this again and again.

Quiz Night

English Bitter

4.7% ABV

We used UK pale, aromatic, and crystal malts in this sessionable pub standby. Yorkshire yeast and East Kent Goldings hops make it as authentic as an English beer from Illinois can get.

Brief Candle

Saison / Farmhouse Ale

6.3% ABV

Bright with flavors of tart lemons, fresh hay, and peppercorns, this beer is rustic and sophisticated in equal measure.
