Mad Hatchet Brewing

Fedd Up with the HAZE
Red IPA - 6.3% ~63 IBU

In collaboration with Robert Rolfe Feddersen, this beer was inspired to pay homage to the classic hops of our past.. the "C" hops - C'MON NOW!

Our Red IPA is loaded with Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, and Citra (NOT a classic "C" hop) hops.

It's only fitting to release this beer on Friday the 13th in October. With its red hue and hop flavors to make this a perfect fall & Halloween IPA.

Miskatonic Brewing Company
Darien, IL

Dungeon Master: Barrel-Aged Thunderbird
Rum Barrel-Aged Tiramisu Stout - 12%

Aged 18 months in Great Lakes Rum Barrels. This tiramisu-inspired Dungeon Master is a colossus of flavors. Big espresso notes from the cold steeped Guatemala and Brazil coffee marry with rich fudge, vanilla, and brown sugar of the Ghana and Haiti cacao nibs. As it warms across the tongue, doughy lady fingers linger to an oh-so-pleasant finish.

Noon Whistle Brewing
Naperville, IL & Lombard, IL

Paranormal Gummy IPA
IPA - New England / Hazy - 7%

Grab a goblet of this scarily hazy Northeast IPA jam-packed with El Dorado, Lemon Drop & Vic Secret hops providing hints of bright citrus, pineapple, pear, watermelon, stone fruit, and subtle herbaceous and pine notes..

Garage Band Brewing
Plainfield, IL

New England IPA

This triple-hopped New England-style IPA is back! Nor'Easter is a hazy fruit bomb packed with El Dorado, Ekuanot, Mosaic and Citra hops!



Garage Band Brewing
Plainfield, IL

Three Broomsticks
Cream Ale

Three Broomsticks is also back (on Saturday!) - With an original spin from a cult classic film, Three Broomsticks expels tasting notes of graham cracker and butterscotch in this true-to-style version of a butterbeer. The addition of lactose & supreme attention to detail on flavor creates a magical yet tame brew with a finish that’ll leave you wondering how soon you can get your next taste.

Pollyanna Brewing Company
Lemont, IL

Cranberry-Orange Allure
Berliner-style Weisse Ale - 4.6% ~3 IBU

Alluringly tart and fruity, this sour wheat beer is loaded with Cranberry and Sweet Orange Peel enhancing its already magnetic seductiveness. Enchantingly light in body and effervescent, we sour this German-style Berliner Weisse with lactobacillus in the kettle before adding mounds of our favorite boggy fruit and sweet orange peel.

RT66 Old School Brewing
Wilmington, IL

Old Wilmatucky
Lager - 4.6%
