The Gardener
Wheat Ale with lavender, lemon peel, and vanilla - 5.7%

The Gardener is the perfect Wheat Beer to capture the essence of spring. This unique seasonal is infused with over 70 pounds of fresh zested lemon peel, steeped in fresh-cut lavender, and just a kiss of vanilla to round out this beautiful bouquet of flavor.

Everyone's favorite seasonal beer is back! Miskatonic added even more fresh lemon peel this year to bring out that bright lemon flavor. This beer is on tap and in 4-packs to-go today.

Pollyanna Brewing
Lemont, IL

Pollyanna Pils
Bohemian Pilsner - 5.4%

Pollyanna Pils is BACK! A brewer’s beer by all definitions, we brewed this Bohemian Pilsner for our brewers. With that in mind, we're happy to share this beautiful lager with you. Crafted with our reverse osmosis water, 100% Bohemian Pilsner malts, and a blend of German Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops, this crisp and clean pils shows off a soft, delicate malt backing as well as a classic, somewhat fruity, spicy, and floral hop backing. This is lagerbier at it's finest.

RT66 Old School Brewing
Wilmington, IL

Prickly Pear Wheat

This one is a little different! Today at 4pm we start our “Beertenders Fastest Tap Challenge” with our Pink Ale Wife! This is a challenge of whose beer taps fastest. Winner receives a well-deserved gift!

Eva is first out of the gate with her “Nopalito” - She has chosen Prickly Pear infusion. It’s staying true to the tropical, refreshing flavor giving it that extra punch of Prickly Pear. If you are Team Eva, come out at 4 and help tap out her beer.

We also have back on the rails “Pauly’s Truck”, Hazy NEIPA and “Wildcat”, Cream Ale, one of our staples.
