We're continuing to produce Snaggletooth Bandana through the summer, and Mr. Inappropriate is coming back after a short hiatus. The following beers are new or have been out of production for some time.
Like the mythical hybrid creatures before it, this beer will confound you and possibly show up in campy movies and hokey gift shops. Unicorns. Jackalopes. Ligers. Now this--an "aleger." Half ale, half lager, full of rye and red as the twilight sky. This is our collaboration with our dear friends at Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis. When you think about breweries you wish distributed to Illinois, this one should be at the top of your list. Available now, limited release. Read more about Mythological Wonder.
Big, mean, and monocled, Grumpess is as greedy as a pig. Equally amphibian and canine, hard-edged and fully refined. Some might try this beer and call it an abomination, a bête noire. Others might run for cover out of pure fear. Run you might, but you're fucked. Proper fucked. Instead, sit back in your finest armchair with your finest pipe, your most distinguished countenance, and enjoy the mutually assured destruction of true nemeses: roasted malt and pine-resin hop aroma. Available early June, limited release. Read more about Grumpess.
Pilsner is an empire of a beer style, so an imperial pilsner is really just not even fair. Guaranteed to take over the territory, natural resources, means of production, military, and hearts and minds of your tastebuds. Expect a clean, neutral fermentation character with grassy, crackery pilsner malt laden with American citrus hop character and a warming finish. And don't expect any rebellions. Available mid-June, limited release. Read more about Scareball.
This beer has a serious case of less-is-more. After all, a Belgian blonde is really just a stripped-down platform for showing off the aromatic, flavorful wonders of brewers yeast. Effervescent, light-bodied, and full of fruity esters, Lil' Spitfire will give you a refreshing break from the hop-laden norm. Available late June, limited release. You can't read more about Lil' Spitfire yet. Just deal with it. No? Ok. Go to your room and don't come down until you remember who puts a roof over your head, you ungrateful little...
Back by popular demand. Well, not really. You guys demand a lot, and we rarely give it to you. For example: soft-top stools, your fourth beer in the taproom, free hugs from Erin, etc. We won't kid you, we're making this again because we want to drink more of it ourselves, we have an argument to make about the finer points of grammar, and your mom. We wrote those last two list items just to include an Oxford comma. Available late June, limited release. Read more about Oxford Comma.
Each month we will give you a preview of what to expect in the way of beer releases. In no way are we saying we’ll actually meet your expectations–just set them. If this sounds good to you, you should probably reevaluate every important relationship in your life. Like, now.
