A well-balanced, medium to full-bodied beer, red in color and very flavorful.
Single El Dorado hopped American style barley wine that his high in both abv and ibu. Big hoppy nose followed by a balanced mid-palate and a slightly caramel finish. This one can do some damage. It definitely drinks smaller than a 9% beer.
The Boffo Brown ale is a beer that we brewed years ago and then put it in semi retirement for a couple years while we focused on other brands at the brewery. We have recently put it back onto active duty and are brewing it all year. The beer itself is delicious and is a favorite to many of us here at the brewery. Just as most of our beers it's on the "full body" scale pushing the envelope of what an American Brown Ale is to most people. The beer is a very deep/dark color of brown with a nice creamy tan head. The mouthfeel of the beer is very soft and is very drinkable. Flavors of malt, caramel, toffee, and a mild earthy nutty finish allow this beer to be paired with hearty food and sips of bourbon.
This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We used an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cast iron backbone. Our Oatmeal Brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.
Rocky's Revenge is an American Brown ale with a portion aged in bourbon barrels. Original Gravity: 1.059 Final Gravity: 1.013 International Bittering Units: 30 Color (SRM): 26 Malt: 2-row, Caramel, Carapils, Chocolate, Munich Hops: Fuggles, Northern Brewer
Sunlight Cream Ale is our most approachable beer and is a great introduction to the world of Craft Beer. Cream ale is one of the earliest styles of American beer, but was virtually wiped out by American lager brewers. Our Cream Ale is an all malt beer. Only the finest quality barley, wheat and oats are used to give this beer itâ€™s smooth malt profile which is delicately balanced with American hops and a cool fermentation to give this beer a crisp, clean finish.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time.
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
Big, juicy citrus complexity. The rich golden hue is clear as the sky. Typical hop punch but without the long lingering sting. Slight grassy notes but a wonderfully balanced brew.
Fistful of Hops is our quarterly series of four IPAs, each with the same malt base. We balance that base against a seasonal â€œfistful of hopsâ€ - each time a different variety. Our summer delivery (2017) highlights Azacca and Mosaic hops, which contribute the citrusy flavors of orange, mango, and tropical fruit.
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donâ€™t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.
Habanero flavored Sculpin IPA
This IPA will seriously punch you right in the taste buds. Strong and resinous hop aroma. Bitter bite but smooth, yet lingering finish. Not for the faint of heart.
Bourbon Barrel Pig Bird is Pig Bird, a Belgian IPA, aged in Bourbon Barrels.
Just the right amount of rye adds the semi-aggressive characteristics to this highly approachable beer. Fruity aromatics on the nose. Rich, full mouthfeel. Finishes with a well-balanced yet slightly sweet and spicy finish.
The Sculpin is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops.
This delicious Ballast Point Ale won a gold medal at the World Beer Cup 2010 in the International Pale Ale category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on it's fins that can give a strong sting.
Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.
Slurm is a hazy, juicy New England style India Pale Ale. Light orange in color with a prominent haze, Slurm has aromas of pineapple and mango. Big tropical fruit flavors hit you up front and carry through to the finish. This easy drinking, medium-bodied New England style IPA has a slightly bitter, dry finish.
An IPA dosed with Brettanomyces for a tart, acidic ride.
Tasting Notes: Wonderful citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Dry and crisp with a balanced, but significant bitterness.
Collaboration IPA with Tribes Alehouse in Tinley Park for the upcoming Tribes Fest. Amarillo and Galaxy hops blend nicely for herbal and fruity notes in this brew.
4rd Tribes Beer Company Collaboration IPA with Revolution Brewery for the upcoming Tribes Fest. Amarillo and Galaxy hops blend nicely for herbal and fruity notes in this brew.
Bell's Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.
West Side Beavo is a one-off collaboration by brewmasters Logan Plant and Matt Brynildson, inspired by a friendship forged at the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest. â€œLogan has been to the fest several times, and weâ€™ve been talking about doing a collaboration for a few years now,â€ said Brynildson, Firestone Walkerâ€™s brewmaster. â€œWeâ€™ve both been itching to do our own IPLs, so we thought it would be a perfect style to explore together.â€
Local's Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.
Local's Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Short's first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.
Deep golden in color, made with light caramel malts, hopped with loads of Amarillo hops with a slight citrus flavor, then dry hopped for 4 days for a plentiful aroma. Our brewmaster's favorite.
A mystic legend echoes in our brewhouse - that of St. Lupulin the archetypal hophead. He devoted endless summers to endless rows of hops, tending to the flowers and the beloved resin within - lupulin. Extraordinary oils in this yellow resin provide this dry-hopped extra pale ale with an undeniably pleasing and clean, crisp finish. One sip of this seaasing floral aromasonal summer ale and you, too, will believe.
Made with 100% Vienna malt as the base and some light caramel malts for color. Hopped and dry hopped with Hull Melon. Strawberry and green melon aromas with a malty and slightly sweet mouthfeel and clean finish.
Congratulations! Welcome to flavor country. This most recent FFF's pale ale has just the Congratulations! Welcome to flavor country. This most recent FFF's pale ale has just the malt backbone to support an explosive juicy hop profile derived from a new blend of proprietary hops. Cheers.derived from a new blend of proprietary hops. Cheers.
A medium bodied single hop pale ale showcasing Citra hop from the Yakima Valley, U.S.A
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.
Pony is new to the scene, but we welcome this pilsner lager into the fold like an old friend. Pony is a crisp, clean pilsner you can saddle on up to the bar and order with a confident, rangy thunder. Get on yer stoop or prepare for the trek, thereâ€™s a Pony in every pint.
Stella Artois was first brewed as a Christmas beer in leuven. It was named Stella from the star of Christmas, and Artois after Sebastian Artois, founder of the brewery. It's brewed to perfection using the original Stella Artois yeast and the celebrated Saaz hops. It's the optimum premium lager, with it's full flavour and clean crisp taste.
Tart and citrusy with lots of tequila character. Aged for several months in Suerteâ€™s AÃ±ejo and Reposado barrels
Velour Soccer Mom is a crisp Sour Ale that is aged in oak barrels with fresh raspberries and hibiscus. It has a light body with a pink hue and was fermented with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that lends a delightfully tart character.
Pasteurised. Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder.
Launched in 1961.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.
Obsidian Stout is as black as the nearby volcanic flow from which it gets its name. It's a deep and satisfying experience, with distinct notes of chocolate, espresso, roasted malt and black barley. It is robust and full, with a big roasted finish.
Obsidian, along with Mirror Pond and Black Butte, first set Deschutes on its renegade path of high-risk, high reward brewing. Any tour of great craft beer starts here.
Think of Obsidian as the malt yin to Mirror Pond's hop yang, and the perfect beer to sit, contemplate and linger over.
"Black as midnight with a dark head. Deep, black chocolate aroma, wonderfully complex and clean. Hoppy and very bitter in the mouth, a great roasted finish. Sharp and dry. Great balance."
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is unique and truly refreshing. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and our own special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. Overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.

Sunking/Chilly Water collaboration! We brewed two different versions of the same beer. Dubbel Vision is a Belgian Dubbel with made with Belgian yeast. Double Vision is an English Double made with English yeast.
The beer CuvÃ©e des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called 'Foeders' in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.
Fruity banana esters and clove with more subtle herbal, citrus, and sweet bread notes. This medium bodied Belgian strong ale is malty sweet at first with a bitter warming finish. Brewed with our friends in the band Exodus. If you hit the floor you can always crawl!!
Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with organic pilsner and wheat malts from Canada. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.
An artisan white ale brewed in the classic biere blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderful dry finish.
This AmeriCAN take on the Belgian Classic Wit, featuring orange peel and coriander spice emanated from the basement blues music legacy Dave McIntyre (Oskar Blusologist) built at the original Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, CO. On draft for over a decade, Priscilla's zesty citrus and light fresh baked bread aromas mix with spicy, fruity fermentation. Light bodied with a subtle savory spice accent and a dry, lightly tart finish you can nearly feel the flicker of the neon and sounds of the King. White Wit Wheat.
A classic American wheat beer using fresh watermelon. Straw-colored and refreshing with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.
Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last you'll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.
The Sun-Standard is an American wheat ale with passion fruit. It's an extremely refreshing and enjoyable beer that will be perfect for the warmer weather. The low bitterness (14.5 IBU), and fairly simple base wheat beer allow us to showcase the special ingredient, the passion fruit. One other note of interest about this beer is the hop variety used. It is a recent variety grown in Germany in the famed Hallertau region called HÃ¼el Melon, and has aromas of strawberry and honeydew melon.
The name of this beer references an old newspaper that was borne out of WWI conservation efforts that combined the existing papers the Sun and the Standard in 1918, and extending its publication into the late 20th century. It boasted that is was the only newspaper printed in Blue Island. (We certainly can understand the pride of being the only one of your business type in the city!)
A stout-ish porter with a touch of porter-ish stout. Accepting the fact that we live in confusing times, Greenbush offers up itâ€™s own "ball of confusion," with Distorter - a robust porter blurring the lines between a porter and a stout. Have a bottle or get therapy.

A complex, roasty porter with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and bold hop presence.
Sure, Gordon Lightfoot hasn?t penned an ode to it (yet), but this porter is song-worthy?much like its legendary namesake ship that frequently docked in Cleveland and tragically sunk in Lake Superior in 1975 with many Northeast Ohioans on board.
Hard apple cider blended with Michigan Raspberries.
Octorok is a semi dry, light bodied cider with delicate pear-like aromas made from a blend of Greening Apples and Jonathan apples. Initial sweet flavors shift quickly to a sharp bold tartness with a mildly dry finish. Featuring apples from Boals Orchards.
This cider was specially made for a draft customer in Grand Rapids, MI.. We are using over 4 lbs. of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in a 30 gallon batch of this limited edition cider to bring you Totally Roasted. You will notice that soaking pecans in cider brings a unique texture and taste to the drink. We use cinnamon and vanilla during the roasting process and follow that up by adding whole cut vanilla beans to the cider. These subtle tastes certainly make this a cider all itâ€™s own.
Slightly tart from the addition of black currant puree. Fresh full hop flavor. Traditional light straw notes as expected in a saison. Easy drinking session style beer.
We like to keep you on your toes, so we're introducing another brand new beer tomorrow, this time on draft and in bottles at Greenbush. Atomic Tauntaun Overdrive (or ATO, as we call it) is a Strawberry Habanero Vanilla ale that was first brewed two years ago as a small-batch festival beer. We're only making one 15-barrel batch of this bad boy, so don't expect it to stick around long!
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandyâ€”RÃ¼bÃ¦us is Founders' way to celebrate the season's warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.
Kolsch style brewed with strawberry & lemon zest
Heaps of hops give this pale lager a bracing, herbal bite over layers of soft and smooth malt flavor. This refreshing combination of tastes makes Prima a classy quencher in the tradition of the great pilsners of Europe. Dry and delightful, this is an elegant beer.
Just like the Evolution replaced the Shovelhead, our Big Twin DIPA is evolving into a killer 8% intensely hopped, bright double IPA with a dry but bitter finish. Hopped with mandarina and mosaic, it is a superbly well balanced brew!
Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, they're just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBU's
Hop Centric is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. This one is a real hop blast, dripping with the resiny soul of fresh Northwest hops. Donâ€™t come crying to us if itâ€™s too much for you; this oneâ€™s for hopheads only! And get it now, cause when itâ€™s gone, itâ€™s gone. Boo hoo. 22.7 Plato 100.1 IBU
This is the first time we've brought this out of its scabbard. We've never released a Double IPA - and this will make its debut at our 5th Anniversary Party on 5/17. Attacking your ability to make good choices, this bully quickly becomes your best friend.

Navaja is a Double IPA that changes each time we brew it, unless we don't change it. This go-round is a little more aggressive. Heavy on Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus hops and Golden Promise malt; Navaja is a shredder rotating on all cylinders.Navaja is a shredder rotating on all cylinders.
We have been serving Dark Matter Chocolate City Iced Coffee on tap at Tribes for a long time. We love it. Our guests love it. We love our IPA. Our guests love our IPA. Soooo..just like a peanut butter cup, we married the two flavors together for one outstanding beverage. Someone put coffee in my beer! Hey, someone but beer in my coffee! However you look at it your bound to love it.
Our Watermelon Dorado Double IPA is not one to back down from big flavors. Mash, kettle, and dry hopping blend to create a huge hop profile that is balanced with a blast of watermelon. The result is a refreshing brew that is all summer and no seeds.
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!
Born from our passion for experimentation, our Briney Melon Gose boasts a thirst-quenching tartness that is perfectly balanced by subtle watermelon flavors and aromas. Gentle additions of sea salt create a refreshing harmony between the acidity and fruity sweetness leading to clean, dry finish.
Originally brewed in small batches at our pubs, this crowd-pleasing American-style ale delivers a tempting citrus aroma and light wheat character
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn't suck.
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
Robust, full bodied porter with roasted notes of chocolate and dark caramel.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt lover's delight.
Wee Mac is a Scottish style brown ale. Fermented at cooler than normal temperatures to mimic the climate of Scotland. Wee Mac is an easy drinking brown ale that is both smooth and malty wit caramel and chocolate tones. Hops are used sparingly in this beer and serve only to help balance the sweetness of the malt.
