New Releases & Old Favorites

Pollyanna Brewing Company
Lemont, IL

Sure Sure
Hazy IPA - 6.4%

Brewed with a thiol enhancing yeast strain, this IPA is chock full of guava and passion fruit aromas and flavors thanks to a yeast strain that converts precursors in malt and hops into a big-time tropical bouquet. Hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Simcoe, we took the tropical fruit levels to another orbit in "Sure Sure" with gooseberry, fruit punch, and some dankness. At 6.4% ABV, the base body is sturdy and full of silky oats, but the hops are clearly the star here.

Dreamsicle Flurries
Wheat Ale - 5.2%

Guess who's back?! Back again, it's Dreamsicle Flurries! This delicious, cold weather favorite is back on draft AND in 4pks at all taproom locations. Our 5.2% ABV Wheat Ale with Orange and Vanilla added has returned with perfect timing as always. Just as we were all feeling down about the time change, Dreamsicle Flurries is back to make everything better!

RT66 Old School Brewing
Wilmington, IL

Session IPA - 4.2%

We've partnered with The K?kua project, where proceeds from this collaboration will be going to the Maui Wildfire Relief fund! Maui was absolutely devastated by wildfires earlier this year and their brewing community was massively affected too, so we're proud to take part in such a worthwhile project. K?kua is a 4.2% ABV Session IPA with Waimea and Mosaic hops, available now at all our taprooms. Let's raise a pint and do our part to give back. Mahalo!

Noon Whistle Brewing
Naperville, IL & Lombard, IL

Foeder Aged Mixed Fermentation Wild Ale

This beer is full of citrus-y complexity, featuring the unique flavors that only wild fermentation can offer. Bursting with notes of ripe passionfruit, melon, lime zest, and crushed pineapple.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Flanders Red Ale

Ned is a rich Flanders Red ale that's been patiently aged in bourbon barrels. This blend of tart and bourbon notes include cherry flesh, red currant, and bourbon-soaked plum.

Hipsters vs. Lumberjacks
Vanilla Red Ale

Hipsters Vs. Lumberjacks is back on draft and in cans this Thursday in our Naperville Tasting Room and Lombard Brewpub. This malty brew boasts notes of toasted caramel and spice, melding with a warm and nutty foundation. The perfect base for the vanilla infusion which adds a smooth, sweet complexity that contrasts brilliantly with the roasted undertones. This brew strikes a perfect balance between the edgy bitterness and the comforting, earthy vibes of the great outdoors.

Tangled Roots Brewing Co.
Ottawa, IL & Lockport, IL

Apple • Cinnamon • Pie Crust

Like biting into the perfect slice of fresh apple pie, this other worldly beer will transport you to another dimension. Notes of cinnamon, apple, and buttery flaky crust swirl in your glass like a liquid apple pie.
