This lager boasts an unrivaled, well-rounded, balanced, and wonderfully thirst-quenching flavor. Mildly hopped with a typically refreshing beer bouquet, golden color, a magnificent fine head, and pleasant aftertaste. An L&E staff favorite.

Old Style 3

Wiseacre Tiny Bomb 6
Boom! the soft waters of Pilsen, Czech Republic, birthed this style centuries ago, and the artesian wells in Memphis are perfect for this modern take on a timeless classic. This beer is made with German and American pilsner malt and is spiked with 50lbs of local wildflower honey. There are delicate aromas of sugar and clover wafting forth from this crisp, smooth Pale Lager.

De Dolle Stille Nacht 12
Stille Nacht (Silent Night) is a seasonal limited release from Brouwerij De Dolle. The brewers claim that it has the highest density of any Belgian beer, boiling for five hours in the kettle with pale malt and white candi sugar. A generous dry hopping with Nugget hops lends an extra bitterness that balances the extreme sweetness that comes from such a high density ale, and the taste triangle is with some acidity courtesy of the fermentation process. We are proud to be able to offer you this yearly limited release on draft. Cheers!

Belgian Strong Pale Ale, 12% ABV

Firestone Walker Agrestic 10
Fittingly, Agrestic Ale begins its journey as DBA; the foundational beer first offered when Firestone Walker opened its doors in 1996. Oak barrels along with their proprietary collections of microflora mimic a chrysalis process, transforming DBA into Agrestic Ale over the course of 12-15 months. The result is a synergistic blend of beer matured in French & American oak with signature flavors and aromas: wood-derived toast, lemon pith, and rosewood swirl on the nose and palate, followed by an amazing harmony of vanilla, coconut, and Earl Grey tea. Dark Cherries, caramel malt, and spice round out its complexity and drinkability. The finish is crisp with a mouthwatering acidity and chewy tannins.

American Wild Ale, 6.6% ABV

Illuminated Brew Works War Goat 6
For War Goat, IBW takes their American Farmhouse, Ed’s Legs, and gussied him up for the blood-stained streets of Chicago with one pound per barrel of Simcoe hops creating a crushable Farmhouse with notes of lemon, grapefruit, grass, and victory.
Illuminated Brew Works, Chicago, IL
Dry-Hopped Farmhouse Ale, 5.5% ABV

Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale 7
This old ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea-fairing ports, their local pubs and the weathered fishermen that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill, creating a very strong, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. The old ale is brewed with molasses with and is then oak-aged. The result is a rich, malty delight that's deceptively smooth and drinkable. 
Founders Brewing Company, MI
Old Ale, 9.8% ABV

Pollyanna Peppermint Milk Stout 6
Brewed with a hefty dose of chocolate, peppermint, and lactose, this milk stout has a peppermint patty-like sensation. Perfect for the never-ending Midwestern Winter, let this cool your pallet by warm fire.
Pollyanna Brewing Company, Lemont, IL
Milk Stout, 6.5% ABV

Meantime Naval College Old Porter 8
In the 18th and 19th Centuries, London brewers were at the forefront of applying new scientific and technological advances to beer making. By the time the brewhouse at the Old Royal Naval College was built in 1836, Porter was a blend of ‘stock’ beer, matured in giant wooden tuns for up to two years, with young beer. Meantime’s Porter is made in the same fashion. 24 months aging in used Bruichladdich Octomore barrels has lent a woody, intensely peaty smokiness to the ‘stock’ porter, which is then blended with a younger beer, adding vitality to the brew.
Meantime Brewing Co. Ltd., London
English Porter, 8% ABV

Virtue Michigan Brut 6
Michigan, like all great apple regions, is on a coast. The maritime climate provides generous rainfall for local orchards. Virtue uses a large variety of Michigan apples grown on local family farms. The blend of these heirloom apples creates a complexity of flavor that is impossible to achieve with a more limited selection of apple varieties. Michigan Brut bears the scent of crisp apple and citrus notes with a bit of yeast. Clean and crisp up front, it follows with a tart, dry, lightly oaky lingering finish.
Virtue Cider, Fennville, MI
Cider, 6.7% ABV

Prairie BOMB! 8
Bomb! is an imperial stout aged on coffee, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chili peppers. The peppers add just the right amount of heat to complement the intense coffee and chocolate flavors. Bomb! was named a RateBeer Top 100 Beer in the World for three consecutive years.
Prairie Artisan Ales, Krebbs, OK
Imperial Stout, 13% ABV

North Coast Red Seal Nitro 6
Malt and hops are beautifully married in this full-bodied, copper-red Pale Ale. Red Seal Ale is generously hopped in the traditional manner for a long, spicy finish. This beer has been around for decades, but the nitro carbonation gives it a whole new aroma and texture reminding us why we fell in love with this beer in the first place.
North Coast Brewing Co. Fort Bragg, CA
American Amber Ale, 5.4% ABV

Hopewell Thank Me Later 6
A dry, firmly bitter IPA with a heavy dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe hops against a lean malt backbone. Dank tropical and citrus notes flow throughout this deceptively smooth hoppy beer.
Hopewell Brewing Company, Chicago, IL
American IPA, 7.2% ABV

Pollyanna Scales of Gold 6
The path from despair to hope to happiness starts with a bright idea and oftentimes a bright idea is sparked by beer. Our "Scales of Gold" IPA was probably, maybe, definitely sparked by a beer or two. Brewed with all types of golden grains, this Farmhouse-style IPA has our house Belgian yeast and a massive hop charge of Zythos and Huell Melon. Expect a lightly sweetened malt base balanced with a pleasant bitterness and loads of pineapple, citrus, melon, and banana.
Pollyanna Brewing Company, Lemont, IL
Farmhouse style IPA, 6% ABV

Metropolitan Generator   7
This beer is all about the malt. Dark Munich malt, rich in melanoidins (brewer-speak for “flavor”), provides a monstrous backbone for this deceptively easy beer. A light balance of Horizon and Santiam hops is there to support the talent. Hearty enough to provide a monk’s Lenten sustenance. Robust enough to feed Midwestern grit. Bold enough to kick a Sasquatch in the junk.
Metropolitan Brewing, Chicago, IL
Doppelbock, 8% ABV

Pipeworks Ninja vs. Unicorn 7
Ninja vs. Unicorn celebrates the epic battle between two of the biggest
hop heads of lore. Brewed with over five pounds of hops per barrel, this
unfiltered double IPA is sure to please the most discerning hop lover.
Whether you’re rooting for the mythical horned horse or the deadly
assassin of the east, we hope you’ll enjoy Ninja vs. Unicorn.

Alaskan Brewing Hop-O-Thermia 5
Hop-O-Thermia is a full flavored Double IPA with a robust malt body resting
in easy harmony, like a massive grizzly bear in winter, with the big and
drinkable American hop character. Nugget and Apollo hops in the brew
kettle provide a green, floral aroma and a citrus base, while late additions
of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and
orange—complimenting the resilient malt profile.
