Bell’s Hopslam 7
Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle and culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe Hops, Hopslam possesses the most complex hopping schedule in Bell’s repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt build and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the style.
Bell’s Brewery, Kalamazoo, MI
Double IPA 10%

Maplewood Son of Juice 7
Juicy. Juicy. Son of Juice.
Son of Juice is truly his father’s child. A hazy IPA dripping with fruit juice notes. Pilsner malt and oats make a perfect canvas for loads of Mosaic, Simcoe, Nugget, and Warrior hops.
Maplewood Brewery, Chicago, IL
American IPA, 6.3% 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

The Cider Farm Tremlett’s Organic 8
The Cider Farm has spent the last 13 years grafting and growing true cider apples organically to produce their ciders and apple brandy. Tremlett’s is a blend of Tremlett’s Bitter — an English cider apple that lives up to it’s name! — with the tart and aromatic Priscilla apple. It is their most limited release.

Penrose Navette 7
This Belgian-inspired Black Ale has an herbal, toasted aroma. Its medium body, smooth texture, and bitter chocolate flavor provide a strong background that perfectly showcases the Ardennes yeast character without overpowering it, while its long dry finish, moves from sweet to bitter on the palate.
Penrose Brewing Co. Geneva, IL
Belgian Black Ale 6%

Illuminated Brew Works Brainwash 7
Brainwash glows a hazy, post-hypnotic yellow and smells of melon, passionfruit, white pepper, and grain. The taste is juicy and tart, very much like a wild ale, but it achieves its flavor profile simply with water, hops, grain and saccharomyces (non-wild) yeast.  At 7% Brainwash is efficient at bending the mind, yet it drinks like a beverage half its weight in booze.
Illuminated Brew Works, Chicago, IL
Tart Farmhouse Ale 7% ABV

New Belgian Lips of Faith “La Folie”  8
La Folie Wood-Aged Biere is New Belgium's original wood-conditioned beer, resting in French Oak barrels between one and three years before being bottled. La Folie emulates the spontaneous fermentation beers of beloved Flanders with sour apple notes, a dry effervescence, and earthy undertones.
New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, CO

Belgian Dark Ale, 5.8% ABV

Hopewell Thick & Thin 7
Thick & Thin is a full-bodied Stout that balances deep chocolate and roast notes with the citrus and pine of new-age hops. At 6% abv, Thick & Thin stays sessionable while still offering the richness and warming effects desired for chilly temps. Think chocolate-covered orange rind as you enjoy this wintry companion—through thick and thin.
Hopewell Brewing, Chicago, IL
Irish Dry Stout 6%

Alarmist Phobophobia 7
A very easy drinking beer based on the traditional Belgian "Patersbier", which means "Father’s beer" in Dutch. Traditionally brewed by Trappist monks for their own consumption during meals (or when no one was looking). Light, refreshing. Think of it as a monk’s table beer. Simple recipe of German Pilsner malt, German acidulated malt, and saaz hops.
Alarmist Brewing, Chicago, IL
Belgian Ale, 4.8% ABV

Revolution Rev Pils 7
A traditional German pilsner undertaken with a reverent but decidedly American approach. Employing 100% Weyermann malts lends a subtly expressive base for this light-bodied, straw-hued pale lager. Noble and noble-derived hops, including German Select, Saphir and Hallertau Gold (grown by only a single farm in all of Bavaria), impart aromas of earth, grass and spice. Classic Bavarian lager yeast produces a clean beer which finishes dry and beckons you to sip again.
Revolution Brewing, Chicago, IL
German Pilsner, 5.5% 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
