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

Fool’s Errand Vanilla

Porter - Other

5.8% ABV

This porter spent 8 months in a Heaven Hill bourbon barrel that had previously held last winter’s BA Lighted Windows on the Snow, a Belgian triple. The bourbon is merely a ghost of its previous self, but the wood contributes a softness that is complemented by the Madagascar vanilla beans. It gets more complicated as it warms.

Puckerlemon Dry Hop

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

Foederbeer aged in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and dry hopped with Citra & Moutueka

Tuba Tuba!

IPA - Imperial / Double

8.0% ABV

Your heroes in New England IPAs are probably our heroes in New England IPAs. We like to think we’re getting close. We get the big citrus/tropical fruit salad nose on a smooth, soft body that’s well known among the hazebros and hazebroettes who spend their dayz in hazeland.

Barrel Aged Sister Havana

Stout - Russian Imperial

9.5% 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!

Havana Dessert

Stout - Russian Imperial

9.5% ABV

BA Sister Havana made smoother and more choclatey with lactose, cacao nibs, and Madagascar vanilla beans. Rimmed with a malted milk, sugar crunch and served below a Craft Donuts + Coffee Chocolate Malted Pretzel mini donut (limited quantities!!)

Puckerlemon Cabernet

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

We filled our 20 BBL Foeder on August 28, 2017. After 8 months of souring, it was moved into a freshly dumped Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrel from Napa. We get aromas and flavors that recall the mouthwatering richness of an outstanding Cabernet, overlayed with wood spice and an assertively tangy funk.

Puckerlemon Guava

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

Foederbeer refermented in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for 5 months on nearly 100 pounds of pink guava purée. It offers bright tropical fruit in the aroma and flavor, along with zesty oak spices and a slightly softer, funky tartness. This may be the most approachable Puckerlemon beer.

Puckerlemon Montmorency

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

Foederbeer refermented in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for 5 months on nearly 100 pounds of sour cherry purée. This beer is lipsmackingly tart, and if you don’t already know and love what that means, it might not be for you. A bright ruby in the glass, it features cherry pie and baking spices on the nose, then hits you with a wave of sour red fruit, finishing with a softer, lightly earthy barnyard character.

Roaring Table Octoberfest

Festbier

5.8% ABV

This celebratory lager was brewed with German Pils, Vienna, and Munich malts. It offers a clean, lightly spicy nose and a rich bready maltiness on the tongue. It finishes dry and crisp. In Munich, the festivalgoers measure their appreciation for this style by the liter.

Spirit Pack

American Wild Ale

7.0% ABV

Foederbeer refermented in Chardonnay wine barrels for 9 months on more than 100 pounds of apricot purée. With more time in the barrel, the fruit and oak blend together well and aren’t easy to untangle. We get soft bright apricot on the nose, followed by flavors of Brett funk, white wine, wood spice, and ripe apricot.

Who Rescues Who

Pale Ale - New England

5.4% ABV

Brewed to benefit our furry friends, $2.50 of every pint sold will go to Bombshell Bullies Pit Bull Rescue, Live Like Roo Foundation, Newman Nation: Senior Pets United and Second City Canine Rescue.

This is a soft, hazy, fruity beer that goes perfectly with dog adoption events, dog days, dog memories, and best of all, hanging out with the best people in the world: dogs!

Raspberry Candy Squeeze

IPA - Milkshake

8.3% ABV

Haters gonna hate, milkshakes gonna shake. Think vanilla, lactose, oats, a paycheck’s worth of raspberries fermented with two yeasts. Double dry hopped in the cool kid style with the usual suspects. It’s weird, it’s beer, get used to it!

Far Zero Sunset

Stout - Oatmeal

5.8% ABV

This soft and creamy stout hints at mocha and chocolate frosting on the nose. Dark fruits, cocoa powder, and cookie dough lead the way to a pleasantly dry and lightly tannic finish.

Strip Mall Especial

Lager - North American Adjunct

5.5% ABV

Never heard of Untappd? This one’s for you. It offers a subtle aroma of beer, a beery mouthfeel, and flavors reminiscent of beer. Put down your phone down and drink it.
