Our Beer


Czech Dark Lager

4.4% ABV

Coming in at 4.4 abv this tmavé pivo features pilsen, caramel, roasted and toasted malts. Smooth, crisp and perfect for this time in the Midwest. Na Zdravi!!! And before you ask.. no we are no fluent..

BBA Sunburnt Mirth 2021

Imperial Milk Stout aged in Bourbon barrels

12% ABV

Fourteen months in Heaven Hill and Four Roses barrels yielded a silky rich stout with massive notes of fudge, chocolate frosting, and whiskey-soaked cherries. Best enjoyed with (or in place of) dessert!



6.7% ABV

Here is our house Saison, fermented with the peerless yeast of Hainaut, Belgium. Expect shifting impressions of cloves, peppercorn, lemon custard, baguette, warm hay and bubble gum, among others. There is no better style to pair with food. We hope you enjoy it!

Enologica – Zinfandel

Vintage 2020 – Zinfandel Blend

8.5% ABV

A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignan grapes fermented with our house foederbeer and aged one year in French oak. The sip is sweet, tart, and juicy. 

Ex Libris

Wild Ale

6.5% ABV

This blonde mixed-fermentation beer comes Solera-style from our Foeder Crafters oak foeder, which we first filled in July 2017. 



5.2% ABV

This beer is hard for us to sell, being sorely tempted to drink it all ourselves. The synthesis of German malt, hops, and yeast is awesome and delicious!

Imperial Poseiden’s Lantern

Imperial Vanilla Milk Stout

9.2% ABV

 Madagascar vanilla beans and creamy milk sugar tame this fathomless stout, which pours the color of the wine-dark sea.



5.4% ABV

If our strip mall had a cellar, this is the beer we’d be drinking there, straight from the tank. But we make do. This unfiltered lager is creamy and crisp, sweet but dry, and best served sequentially. Prost!



7.1% ABV

This is a rich, maltfocused beer brewed in collaboration with our pals up north. Expect flavors and aromas reminiscent of dark toasted bread, powdered chocolate, and dark fruits like raisins and plums. Prost!

Pander In Whispers

Wild Ale

6.8% ABV

Vigorously tart with a rich minerality evocative of Chablis, paired with subtle tones of rainfall oak and savory Brett. Go ahead and brood on the old, unknown world.



5.4% ABV

Here is a time machine that doesn’t require a flux capacitor. In each sip we can taste midwestern summers of our misspent youth. Pair this beer with some fond memories of your own!


Hoppy Lager

5.4% ABV

We took a mixed bag of grain and brewed a lager dry hopped  with Motueka and Wai-iti from the Southern Hemisphere. Crisp, lemon lime, bready malt.

schools of the wise

Coffee Stout

6.7% ABV

Featuring a custom blend of Tala whole-bean coffees in a stout brewed with Mickey Finn’s, this three-way collaboration with our Libertyville pals is rich and roasty. Expect flavors of espresso, dark chocolate, and caramel on a smooth, frothy sip!


India Pale Ale

7.4% ABV

We continue to explore the liminal territory of modern IPA, where eastern haze, western sulfates, and resurgent IBUs reimagine the outlines of this truly transformational style. Hopped with Idaho7, Nelson Sauvin, and Citra. Enjoy!

Winter IPA

6.8% ABV

Steal The Sun
A hearty malt structure holds three classic hops aloft, casting long shadows of pine, citrus, and earthy depths. In the dark of the season, let each sip remind you of the rebirth sure to come!



5.2% ABV

Our take on the delicate and sublime beer of
Cologne, this one rewards casual sipping and
more introspective pours alike. It’s nuanced,
unhypeable, and we absolutely love it. Drink it
and be awesomely uncool!

Supergigantic Metafantastic

Hazy Double IPA

8.2% ABV

Get your haze, your hazy days, your metagaze on those metaplays, the one where the one is the one. Get a turtle, get a tortoise, here we are now, thus comport us.


Pub Ale

5% ABV

This ESB was brewed with classic strains of English malt, hops, and yeast. It features notes of biscuits, toffee, citrus, and spice on a gentle frame. Pair it with a session of fellowship and good cheer!

Tuba Solo

Hazy IPA

7% ABV

We built this hazy IPA by hand with a ridiculous amount of hops at our absurdly impractical taproom brewery in Lake Zurich, Illinois. We hope you keep this beer cold, drink it fresh, and mightily enjoy our take on a style we have come to love. Cheers!

Wave Snap 2

American IPA

6.5% ABV

Batch #2 of this series continues our exploration of modern IPA, featuring aspects from both coasts. Here we highlight bright German Pilsner malt, pair it with a touch of wheat and oat malts, and add plenty of hops to the kettle, whirlpool, and fermentor. Enjoy!

Waxwing Slain


6.4% ABV

This variation on our house Saison was brewed with a hefty portion of spelt.
