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 ciders, hard seltzers, 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

Holiday Romance

Lager - American

5.3% ABV

Pilsner, wheat, oat, and a kiss of Vienna malts make this rustic lager glow. Loral in the dry hop shines with bright notes of hayfields and fruit salad. Drink fresh – it was never meant to last!

Falcons Cannot Hear

IPA - Imperial / Double New England

7.9% ABV

The description for this beer has been written many thousands of times, by many thousands of breweries. In this case, we believe it is true. Try this with your eyes closed and see for yourself! Hopped with Citra, Galaxy, Michigan Chinnok

Butterfly Tsunami

Lager - Helles

5.1% ABV

This is a lager beer for those who enjoy beer. We made it with German malts, hops, and yeast at our small and impractical brewery in Lake Zurich, Illinois. It pairs well with good friends, sunshine, and afternoon mischief.

Something Rich & Strange

IPA - Sour

5.8% ABV

This tart and mysterious collaboration was brewed with our friend @tyson_the_brewer of FireHop BrewWorks. It was brewed in spirit of a sea-change, by two breweries intrigued by what the future might bring. Cheers!!!

Brewed with Soursop, Toasted Coconut, Lemongrass, Lactose, Vanilla, and heavily hopped with Sabro and Jarrylo.

Springs Eternal


5.3% ABV

Witbier Another endless summer beer. This Belgian style is known for its creamy body and hints of spice, citrus, and floral perfume. One of our all-time favorites!


Lager - American

5.9% ABV

Cold Beer!

Sunburnt Mirth (2019)

Stout - Imperial / Double

11.5% ABV

Imperial Stout brewed with Coconut, Vanilla & Lactose.

Sunburnt Mirth tiptoes into pastry stout territory – this 11.5% ABV beer brewed with milk sugar was conditioned on toasted coconut and Tahitian Vanilla beans. It’s rich and thick, sweet but surprisingly drinkable, and features notes of macaroon, chocolate fudge, and vanilla cream pie. We hope you enjoy this midwinter treat!

Along With Youth

Farmhouse Ale - Saison

Flaked rye and Proximity pils malt with Saaz and Hallertau Mittelfruh. Pairs wonderfully with a picnic on the the banks of a cool running stream in the Spanish countryside, circa 1924.

Every Secret Thing

American Wild Ale

6.5% ABV

A tart and lively expression of our mixed fermentation program, this blend offers layers of candied citrus, cellar funk and bright acidity.

Inessential Houses

IPA - Sour

6.0% ABV

Dry-hopped using Hallertau Blanc, Galaxy & Vic Secret, this tart, refreshing beer balances quenching acidity, milk sugar sweetness, and citrus flavors from fruits and hops.

Enologica – Southern Blend

Sour - Other

8.5% ABV

A 16-month old sour blonde ale refermented on warm-climate varietals in a Chardonnay barrel for one year. This structured hybrid offers a tart and austerely fruity pour that combines the pleasures of wild ales and natural wines.

Why We Fight


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!
