SEASONAL, ROTATING TAP
U.S.A. It could be local, from he midwest, or even the coasts. One thing we know: it’ll be American, craft, and delicious! Your server or bartender has the details.
ALLAGASH, WHITE WHEAT ALE 6.5
Portland, Maine. My personal Cicerone calls Allagash White the undisputed “best” wheat beer in the United States. We love it too! This lovely brew tickles our fancy. P.S. What he doesn’t know is that without him, this list wouldn’t be possible.
HALF ACRE, DAISY CUTTER PALE ALE 6
Chicago, Illinois. A West Coast pale Ale in style, made just down the block—chock-full of dark aromatic hops. A screamer, if ya know what I mean.
LAGUNITAS, IPA INDIA PALE ALE 5.5
Petaluma, California. The original West Coast India Pale Ale. A hoppy Ale celebrating the British trade routes to India. But who cares about history, sweetheart? Just pour my beer and grab me a curry puff.
TWO BROTHERS, DOMAINE DUPAGE FRENCH COUNTRY ALE 5.5
Warrenville, Illinois. Caramel malt, spice & toffee. This artisan beer makes me want to go to the French countryside and one day maybe to DuPage County. Just kidding!
LEFT HAND, MILK STOUT NITRO 6
Longmont, Colorado. Quite possibly America’s best milk stout! A double gold medal winner. Robust malt & coffee flavors, a bit of milk, sugar, flaked oats and chocolate round out this dark brew and certainly satisfy all of your breakfast nutritional needs.
VANDER MILL, ROTATING HARD CIDER 16OZ. CAN 6.5
Spring Lake, Michigan. A newbie on the brew scene in 2006, we love the semi-sweet nature of this Michigan cider. Though the traditional is our favorite from this local cider mill, we couldn’t resist variety– it’s the spice of life!
CRISPIN, HONEYCRISP CIDER 22OZ. BOTTLE 13
Minneapolis, Minnesota. Apples and honey, “This ain’t Rosh Hashana.” Go ahead, doll, sweet your day. With any luck, you’ll catch a little buzz and ease through the holiday.
METROPOLITAN, FLYWHEEL BRIGHT LAGER 6.5
Chicago, Illinois. We love our local brewers. This German-inspired lager makes us want to sing and dance, Prost!
LAGUNITAS, CZECH-STYLE PILSNER 6
Petaluma, California. This cold fermented Czech style pilsner is top notch in my book. Yes, I have a book. It’s called “Facts on Farts” by Brenna Lorenz, so there!
SIXPOINT, SWEET ACTION CREAM ALE 16 OZ. CAN 8
Brooklyn, New York. Love the Brooklyn beer scene, this year round. Sum of great parts, Pale, What & Cream Ales gives us a conundrum, a little bitter and a little sweet, Yumm!
BROOKLYN, LAGER CAN 5
Brooklyn, New York. South side, North side- we hate the Yankees. In 1883, Brooklyn was home to 45 breweries, the year the Dodgers were formed. This fine lager is a tribute to those great 19th century beers, baseball, and our shared disregard for the Bronx bombers.
TWO BROTHERS, PRAIRIE PATH GOLDEN ALE 6
Warrenville, Illinois. How can it be, its gluten free? Who cares, come on this beer is simply delicious. The brothers have done it again! I hear they’re working on a beer to end the curse on the cubs.
SKA, TRUE BLONDE AMERICAN BLONDE ALE CAN 5
Durango, Colorado. Why did the blonde take a ladder to the bar? She heard the drinks were on the house! This, on the other hand, is crisp and refreshing, definitely a smart choice.
GOOSE ISLAND, SOFIE BELGIAN FARMHOUSE ALE 8.5
Chicago, Illinois. A Belgian-style farmhouse ale brewed for the big city. Notes of orange peel, vanilla and white pepper make one wonder if Greg Hall stumbled on the recipe while preparing a sauce for duck in Brussels.
BOULEVARD, TANK 7 FARMHOUSE ALE 8
Kansas City, Missouri. KC’s finest brewery knocks it out of the park with this stellar farmhouse ale. Fruity, big & peppery.
BOULEVARD, 80-ACRE HOPPY WHEAT ALE 5.5
Kansas City, Missouri. Bigger is not always better, but these guys are bigger and better than most. Q: Why get all hoppy with a wheat beer? A: Because wheat needs help and hops need refreshing.
TWO BROTHER’S, EBEL’S WEISS HEFEWIEZEN 6
Warrenville, Illinois. Clove, vanilla & banana scent this rich Bavarian Hefeweizen. I’m just happy I don’t have to wear lederhosen in Lakeview.
OMMEGANG, WITTE BELGIAN WITBIER 6.5
Cooperstown, New York. Dried citrus rinds, fresh orange and coriander give life to this lively wheat brew. With summer upon us this fine beer may inspire a few session drinkers to invest in wheat futures.
NORTH COAST, PRANQSTER BELGIAN GOLDEN ALE 6.5
Ft. Bragg, California. I’m a spell-check guy and this q was killing me until I put it in the “Google,” genius! This fine Belgian ale comes up 1st and 4x before Chico Ca. 60’s & 70’s folk rock cover band of the same name. Talk about web dominance.
VICTORY, GOLDEN MONKEY BELGIAN STRONG ALE 6.5
Downington, Pennsylvania. What’s up with the monkey reference? Well, this Belgian-style trippel comes in at 9.5% ABV, and drinking two brings out the playful monkey in all of us.
LAGUNITAS, A LITTLE SUMPIN’ SUMPIN’ WHEAT ALE 6.5
Petaluma, California. A little poetic license from the brew master, “Wheaty-esque-ish-ness” my sources confirm, 3 types of wheat & all the “C” hops. The result, a hazy slightly bitter ale and a very pretty girl.
TWO BROTHERS, SIDEKICK EXTRA PALE ALE 6
Warrenville, Illinois. Our friends Jim and Jason have another great brew with its citrus and passion fruit-laced pale ale.
OSKAR BLUES, DALE’S PALE ALE CAN 6
Longmont, Colorado. World’s best canned beer, top U.S. pale ale, gold medals, etc. If that’s not good enough for you, too bad. It just means more for me and my cooks (no glass in the kitchen).
GOOSE ISLAND, MATILDA BELGIAN PALE ALE 8.5
Chicago, Illinois. My pal, Founder Greg Hall, makes lots of beer but this one is my favorite. Why? Just because, because Matilda makes me want to dance.
NORTH COAST, RED SEAL AMBER ALE 6
Ft. Bragg, California. Oh, this is a generous ale, although available in 47 states, DMK is the only place you can enjoy it with truffle fries. According to Ed (Cincinnati Inquirer), Red Seal is the finest American amber ale. We love it too.
LAKEFRONT, FIXED GEAR AMERICAN RED ALE 5.5
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Lakefront hasn’t run Miller out of town yet, but no serious beer drinker in mill town can deny that Lakefront it numero uno, period. This red ale has all the kids in the 3rd Ward dancing.
GREEN FLASH, HOP HEAD RED IPA 8
San Diego, California. If this was Fight Club, I’d say, buckets of Amarillo hops beating down caramel rich malts, everyone was happy, high fives all around, tell no-one!
DARK HORSE, CROOKED TREE IPA 6
Marshall, Michigan. Go to the Dark Horse website, read the boys’ bios, you’ll want what they’re on. You may not trip on Crooked tree but you’ll taste the bitter pine and bright citrus of this neighborly IPA.
DOGFISH HEAD, 60 MINUTE IPA INDIA PALE ALE 6
Milton, Delaware. The hophead session beer of choice for the proud Blue Hens and many locals. 60 minutes, 60 hops, 60 I.B.U., 6.0 ABV all adds up to an East Coast treasure.
TALLGRASS, ETHOS IPA 16 OZ. CAN 7.5
Manhattan, Kansas. Legend says, Tallgrass blends six types of hops to create a brew for the gods & worthy of sacrificing a goat! I’m scared to drive through Kansas now, my dog looks a little like a goat.
UINTA, HOP NOTCH IPA 6
Salt Lake City, Utah. A funny thing about Utah is its lack of appreciation for a good buzz. Thanks to Uinta (Mormon slang for “sinfully delicious”), locals and Chicagoans can enjoy what I know: the drunker I am, the funnier I think Utah is!
SIXPOINT, RESIN DOUBLE IPA CAN 7
Brooklyn, New York. Whatever flames upon the night. Man’s own resinous heart has fed. A beer that celebrates the extraction of hop resin for a concentrated yet balanced brew. T.S. Elliot? No. But poetic? Yes!
GREENBUSH, BROTHER BENJAMIN DOUBLE IPA 10
Sawyer, Michigan. Finally 114 IBUs, I was waiting for someone to go crazy and Greenbush did it! Honey malt, high ABV at 10.1% and named after my brother!
OSKAR BLUES, OLD CHUB SCOTCH ALE 6
Longmont, Colorado. I never tire of fine scotch ales. Rich malt, cocoa, coffee and a touch of smoke. All the nutrients of a fine breakfast cereal (think cocoa puffs with alcohol and a cigarette). Yumm!
NORTH COAST, BROTHER THELONIOUS BELGIAN ABBEY ALE 8
Ft. Bragg, California. A tribute to a giant. A dark, strong, mahogany ale with rich strong flavors. Proceeds help fund the Monk Institute of Jazz at U.S.C.
LOST COAST, DOWNTOWN BROWN ENGLISH BROWN ALE 6
Eureka, California. Jackie Brown smooth, Brown Sugar sexy. This nut brown ale makes a white boy quiver. As you might have expected, Lost Coast is owned by two hot Cali gals.
DESCHUTES, BLACK BUTTE PORTER 5
Bend, Oregon. Black Butte defines the radical nature of the brewery. A flagship brew dark roasted chocolate, crystals & carpapils malts. Big river, big beer!
REVOLUTION, EUGENE PORTER CAN 6
Chicago, Illinois. A workingman’s porter named after the Union leader who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894, but you knew that. Either way, this is my fave from our friends in Logan Square.
CENTRAL WATERS, SATIN SOLITUDE STOUT 6
Amherst, Wisconsin. Oh how we crave Wisconsin brews in Chi-town. Rail up with this fine creamy stout! Even my Irish fiends give kudos here. Only 112 miles from Green Bay, so be sensitive on Sundays.
