Easy Hour

German-Style Altbier

4.9% ABV

 We’re excited to serve this classic in the traditional Stange glass (pronounced ‘shh-tang-uh’) just like they do in Düsseldorf! Alt is a dry, firmly bitter, and malt-forward ale with hints of toasted bread crust and noble hop spice. Prost! 

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.

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.

Luxuriator

Doppelbock

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.

Pilsener

Bohemian Lager

5% ABV

We brewed this classic Czech Pils with our new Lukr faucet in mind. It features traditional Moravian malted barley and Saaz hops. Pilsener changed the world in 1842 – it’s the OG hypebeast! Ask for a ‘Milk Pour’ and Drink. The. Foam!

Quiz Night

Best Bitter

4.6% ABV

This real ale is served exclusively on cask as God intended. Toasty, biscuity notes along with hints of toffee, caramel, and floral English hops combine in a flavorful, yet sessionable pint. It is neither overly bitter, warm, or still; on the contrary, this is a beer drinker’s beer that’s wont to make you smile.

RT Pale Ale

American Pale Ale

5.7% ABV

 This throwback APA is our entirely crushable take on a classic that will never go out of style. Copious hopping on top of a rich, crystal-malt-enhanced body will conjure memories of back in the day.

RTB Pils

Pilsner

5.2% ABV

This racy lager is powered by all German everything: malt, hops, and yeast – but we made it our own with a huge whirlpool addition that saturates the beer with noble hop goodness. Crisp and satisfying, this is the beer the brewers at RTB want at the end of a long day!

Secret Beach

Hefeweizen

5%% ABV

We didn’t brew this beer last year, but it’s back now and ready for all sorts of high-summer drinking. Flavors of banana and clove make for a most refreshing pour. Prost!

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.

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

American IPA

6.4% ABV

This beer was brewed with techniques we’ve learned making both new- and old-school IPAs. Featuring rich English malts and copious dry hopping, it’s a modern take on a classic style. 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

Saison

6.4% ABV

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

Whipsmart – Pineapple, Key Lime, Tamarind

Dry Hopped Gose with Pineapple, Key Lime, Tamarind, &

4.7% ABV

Featuring lactobacillus and kveik, our modern interpretation of an ancient style shimmers with quenching acidity and a subtle salinity. The tropical fruits, while fully fermented, add layers of complementary zing. It pairs perfectly with the bright summer sun!

Whirlycaster – Sour IPA w/ Blackberries, Peaches, Milk Sugar, Vanilla & Hibiscus

Fruited Sour IPA

7% ABV

This is a raw, unboiled ale fermented with Kviek yeast and active lactobacillus planetarium. It’s tart, fruity, and delightfully weird. Cheers!
