Helles Among Us
Helles Lager

This brand-spanking-new Helles Lager is golden in hue with a crisp effervescence and a mild yet inviting aroma of fresh malt. The initial flavors resonate with bready notes of toasted biscuit, providing a hearty, slightly nutty foundation. As it develops, a delicate hop bitterness emerges, balancing the brew and lending a touch of herbal spiciness. This lager's clean, dry finish leaves a refreshing, subtly sweet aftertaste, making it a well-rounded choice for those who appreciate lagers with character and balance.

Vecna's Curse
Midwest IPA

Dank • Pear • Citron

What is this alternate universe where everything is familiar, yet somehow more terrifying? In this world that is flipped upside down and where a dark cloud covers Ottawa, Illinois, you sip an IPA. ‘Is this Devil’s Paint Box?’, you ask. Not quite. And while it shares some similarities, Vecna’s Curse is more bitter, dank, and all around more sinister. Drink it if you dare.

Brewed with El Dorado, Chinook, Amarillo, and Mosaic Hops.
