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 Mango Blood Orange

Sour - Gose - Fruited

3.8% ABV

Our Gose turned thick and pulpy with an insane amount of mango and blood orange purée and just a hint of milk sugar and vanilla.

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.

Whipsmart

Sour - Gose

4.1% ABV

Bright and tangy with an undercurrent of salinity. Brewed with Japanese Yuzu and Kabosu juice, this crisp refresher offers notes of lemons, limes, and subtle umami.

Barrel Aged Lighted Windows

Belgian Tripel

9.7% ABV

This is our winter ale aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for eight weeks. Expect creamy vanilla, a hint of whiskey and a light, spicy Belgian finish.

Quiz Night Real Ale

English Bitter

4.9% ABV

What a perfectly balanced Helles lager is to the pinnacle of German brewing, Bitter is to the grand tradition of British ales. Neither particularly bitter, flat, nor warm, this is a living ale that we are proud to offer on cask, pulled by hand from our refurbished beer engine. All beer lovers must try this style, either here or promptly upon arrival at Heathrow!

Folkways

Traditional Ale

5.4% 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.

Just! Add! Baguette!

Farmhouse Ale - Saison

5.6% ABV

A blend of several different Saison base beers went into a neutral oak wine barrel with Galaxy hops for about a month. The resulting beer was bottle conditioned and is now ready for all your picnic vibes. Expect a bright, mildly tart blonde pour with fresh notes of hay, citrus zest, and lemongrass.

If By Whiskey – Northern Blend

Sour - Other

8.5% ABV

This assertively tart wine-beer hybrid began with 16-month-old sour beer from our foeder, which was then aged on 216 pounds of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes in a freshly dumped La Crema Pinot Noir wine barrel. Three months later we removed the beer from the pomace and allowed it to age for another 8 months, before packaging and bottle conditioning. A collaboration with Perfect Brewing Supply.

If By Whiskey – Southern Blend

Sour - Other

8.5% ABV

This assertively tart wine-beer hybrid began with 16-month-old sour beer from our foeder, which was then aged on 144 pounds of Petite Sirah and 72 pounds of Malbec grapes in a freshly dumped La Crema Chardonnay wine barrel. Three months later we removed the beer from the pomace and allowed it to age for another 8 months, before packaging and bottle conditioning. A collaboration with Perfect Brewing Supply.

Roaring Table Fest

Festbier

5.6% ABV

Floor malted Bohemian Pilsner and a touch of light Munich malts offer flavors of fresh baguette and honey. Hallertau Mittelfruh lends a hint of floral perfume and spice. The Bayern lager yeast weaves everything together, creating a beer meant for celebrating by the liter!

Tuba Solo

IPA - New England

7.2% ABV

Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado create impressions of candied citrus, passionfruit, honeydew, and ripe berries on a rich, silky body.

Underwater Handstands

IPA - Milkshake

7.0% ABV

Saccharomyces Trois yeast lends bright notes of fresh pineapple and mango to this creamy, refreshing ale. A touch of milk sugar and vanilla round it out, putting us in a poolside frame of mind.

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 Bow Wow Revolution, Lost Dogs Illinois, Midwest BREW and Reach 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!

Time & Chance

IPA - New England

7.2% ABV

Hazy, juicy, soft, and fruity.

Why We Fight

Grisette

4.9% ABV

Fermented in stainless with a Belgian yeast strain, transferred to neutral wine barrels with Brettanomyces, and then bottle conditioned for the past three months, this beer is perfect for late summer drinking. It’s lively and bright with notes of lemons, hay, and barrel funk!

Antemeridian

Stout - Milk / Sweet

5.3% ABV

Served on nitro, this rich beer combines impressions of dark chocolate, coffee and cream, and just a hint of roasty bitterness. A treat for early risers, and those who sleep in.

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!

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.
