Miskatonic Brewing Company, Darien, IL
Norwegian Rye IPA, 6.5% ABV

Half Acre Chocolate Camaro 7
Chocolate Camaro is a beer rooted in earlier days of micro beer in America. It is a dense, dessert beer pulling attributes from South American Cacao and the abundant use of lactose sugar. We imagine Chevrolet will eventually get pissed with its name. 
Half Acre Brewing, Chicago, IL
Sweet Milk Stout, 6% ABV

Three Floyds Gumballhead 7
An American wheat beer with a refreshing, crisp citrus finish. This delicious session beer is brewed with boatloads of Amarillo hops. Still delicious. Maybe even more so now that we can carry it all the time for your mouths to enjoy.
Three Floyds, Muenster, IN
Wheat Beer, 5.6% ABV

Virtue The Mitten 8
Straight cider, aged for three seasons in ex-bourbon barrels. The Mitten finds notes of vanilla, caramel, and charred American oak, balanced with the best of the orchard, over-ripe apples and their sweet, tart, earthy juice. Many barrels are filled, but only a small portion, the very smoothest, find their way into The Mitten.
Virtue Cider, Fennville, MI
Barrel Aged Cider, 6.8% ABV

Maplewood Guatemalan Bam Bam 6
Guatemalan Bam Bam is a collaboration with the fine humans of Chicago’s Metric Coffee Co.. For this release, fruity and citrus-forward hops were carefully paired with a light roast Guatemalan single origin coffee. All the ingredients work together to create a beautiful auburn hued ale.
Maplewood Brewing, Chicago, IL
American Brown Ale, 6.3% ABV

Penrose Cherry Brune 7
A smooth semi-sweet chocolate presence from the special blend of malts opens up into vibrant fruity flavors from the cherry puree to introduce a balanced, blended brown ale, not to be confused with an Oud Bruin, with flavors reminiscent of a black forest cake.
Penrose Brewing, Chicago, IL
American Brown Ale, 5.6% ABV

Hopewell Clover Club 8
Based on the pre-Prohibition cocktail of the same name, Clover Club is a kettle-soured Saison brewed with gin botanicals and fermented on over 250 pounds of raspberry puree. To achieve balance, this beer is gently tart with prominent raspberry aroma and flavor, backed by firm tannic dryness provided by the botanicals.

Goose Island Grand Prestige 8
Grand Prestige is a classic recipe from out friends at Hertog Jan in the Netherlands. We brewed this beer to their specifications here in Chicago, but we added a new depth to the flavor by barrel aging it in a combination of first and second use bourbon barrels.
Goose Island Beer Company, Chicago, IL
Quadrupel, 11.3% 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

Old Style   3
Old Style employs the traditional brewing skills of the German craftsman. Kraeusened and well carbonated, Old Style beer is a beer that revives the crisp rich freshness of a classic Pilsner: light in color and body, medium in aroma and bitterness, full flavored with a delicate aftertaste.
Milwaukee, WI
Pilsner, 3.6% ABV

Stiegl   6
This lager boasts an unrivaled, well rounded, balanced and wonderfully thirst-quenching flavour. Mildly hopped with a typical refreshing beer bouquet, golden colour, a magnificent fine head and pleasant aftertaste. An L&E staff favorite.
Stiegl, Salzburg, Austria
