Half Acre Deep Space 8
Space, an IPA named for an old friend of Half Acre, rarely leaves the walls of our brewery. There’s a stiff group of Space enthusiasts that frequently visit Half Acre. Whether it's by spending time in the shop or along the bar in the tap room, they've become pieces of our brewery. It’s fitting that a beer named for one of our first regulars has encouraged the proliferation of those that spend time with us. So to echo the cycle and layer the positive with additional rings, we made Deep Space.  A chasm of pits and peaks, swollen with caramel and sap.  The water is chummed, here come the sharks.
Half Acre Brewing, Chicago, IL
Double IPA, 10% 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

Abraxas is an Imperial Stout brewed with ancho chili peppers, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and cinnamon sticks.

Argus Ginger Perry   8
Soft and yeasty up front, Ginger Perry quickly opens up and delivers a dry pear palate with a tart bite, finishing bright and a bit spicy at the end.  This unpasteurized and unfiltered fermentation is Argus's first to use only pears and is free of back-sweetening and added sugars.
Argus CIdery, Austin, TX
Perry, 4.5% ABV

Hopewell Old Duck  9
 “We love it when our neighbors down the road nail a beer style so well. This barley wine has been described as "Bright golden orange, perfect clarity. Aromas of lemon zest, citrus, and caramel maltiness. Taste is fruity as all get out, lemon zest, orange pith, clean and burly at the same time. Zero noticeable alcohol. Very unique hop profile, the lack of malt sweetness is refreshing.”
Hopewell Brewing, Chicago, IL
Barleywine, 10% ABV

Boulevard Saison Brett 2016   9
Saison-Brett, based the very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, we cellared it in our cooler for an additional three months in order to enhance its "Brett" character. 
Boulevard Brewing Co. Kansas City, MO
Saison, 8.5% ABV


Marz Bubbly Kriek  $7
The grains for this beer are similar to a classic Berliner with some roast malts added to compliment the cherries and lactic acid tartness. This ‘Kriek' isn’t a blend of young and old beers with mixed cultures, but their secondary saccharomyces fermentation left enough malt and cherry sugars to achieve a similar finish and tartness. A delicious seasonal sour.
Marz Community Brewing Company, Chicago, IL
Berliner Weisse, 4.5% 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
Flemish-style Oud Bruin, 6.0% ABV

Illuminated Brew Works Pazuzuz's Peddles $8                                                         
Celebrate the earthly delights of bitter chocolate, coffee and dark fruit in this homage to that wacky Babylonian demon’s love affair with the bicycle.                                    
Illuminated Brew Works, Chicago, IL                                                                                    
Belgian Dark Ale, 5.8% ABV


De Dolle Stille Nacht 2013   12
Stille Nacht (Silent Night) is a yearly limited release from De Dolle, brewed especially for Christmas. At twelve percent, it is a very potent beer. Pale malt and white candy sugar in the brew kettle create a sweetness, which is balanced by a late addition of Nugget hops and then further mellowed by the acidity of the fermentation. De Dolle has cellared samples of every bottling of this world-class beer that they have done, so we figured we should follow suit, and we are very happy with the result. Cheers!
Brouwerij De Dolle, Belgium
Strong Ale, 12% ABV

Urban Chestnut Brewing Zwickel 6
Urban Chestnut's flagship lager, pronounced ‘tzv-ick-el’, is an unfiltered, unpasteurized German classic that finishes as a smooth-drinking, vitamin rich (from the yeast), naturally cloudy bier.
Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. St. Louis, MO
Zwickelbier, 5.2% 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
Golden Lager, 4.9% ABV
