A spectral night-flight of IPAs are coming. Can you hear the whistle?

In the 19th Century United Kingdom there was a superstition mysterious birds who call out to foretell death. Common amongst seamen and coal miners, the story tells of six birds always flying and always in search for their seventh. When the seventh whistler was found the group was complete and they could move forward with their fate of unleashing wrath upon the world. (more…)

As Lance Mountain once said, “I was there and you weren’t.” Trust us, you don’t want that to happen with the next release of The Old Order on April 27.

Over the last several years the beers we’ve released through The Old Order have slithered across and between a myriad of styles and barrel heritages. We’ve released imperial stouts from bourbon barrels, fruited Belgian creations aged in California Chardonnay barrels, old world Baltic Porters from a variety of brandy barrels, and more. This time it’s different. This time it is a barrage of dry-hopped bourbon barrel-aged IPAs. (more…)

What a wonderful wonder friendship brings.

For our third consecutive year we are teaming up with the amazing people of Whinny City Pony Con, Chicagoland’s biggest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan convention happening this weekend. If you aren't familiar the MLP community is as diverse and passionate as it gets. Friday, April 5 at 5PM we are celebrating this welcoming and open-minded community with an all new collaboration that would make anyone offer up another cupcake. Brewery-only and bomber-only, this beer is an American IPA with a Pink Raspberry muave soul consisting of too many Pinkie Pies. The Azacca, Citra, and Denali hops are gleaming with raspberry that definitely subdues the bitterness. In short, it tastes like vanilla starburst cotton candy. It's awesome.

Depending on the time of year the second biggest beer brand sold in Chicagoland is Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy. In the age of IPA, wheat beer is king. (more…)

Solemn Gardens IPA is a unique tropical beast. A torrent of coconut bliss stemming from the experimental side of the hop farm world. This is Batch 2.

As a hop-focused brewery we study hop development and this beer is assembled from two cultivars with incredible potential and an already established star. (more…)
