LIBERATION LAGER / Mexican Style Lager / ABV 5.75%
Named after our favorite Latin American theology, one that believes in liberation for all humanity, we know you’ll enjoy this same feeling while drinking this golden lager! Lightly hopped, and crafted with Pilsner, Vienna, Munich Two-Row Pale malt, and fair trade non-gmo Mexican agave, this lager is sure to quench your thirst!
BRICKYARD BOCK / German Style Bock Lager / ABV 6.25%
Representing both the Midwest generally, and Knox County specifically, this beer and its recipe reflect a local heritage. Named for the brickyards that built America in the late 1800s, and the fields that feed the same, this bock is brewed with local water, grains and hops, making it a true Midwestern lager.
KINSMAN REDEEMER / American Pale Ale / ABV 6.25%
American is a beautiful melting pot of ethnicities, religions, and cultures, and all because of the people that call this great country home. An experiment gone well, this pale ale reflects this same diversity. With the grain bill of a rustic French ale, fermented with a clean American yeast, and dry hopped with Loral, a European hybrid, and Ekuanot hops, this beer represents what it looks like when we take care of each other. (Also see the book of Ruth, chapter 3, for where we got this idea!)
KOS (koosh) / Norwegian Farmhouse Ale / ABV 8.0%
In Norway, “Kos” is packed with the best things about life. Kos is about sustainability, intimacy, shared experiences, kindness, caring, and the ability to enjoy the little things of life together. Brewed with Bishop Hill honey, elderberries, midwestern grains, Saaz-like Illinois-grown hops, and fermented with a very earthy Norwegian Yeast, Voss Kveik. Also conditioned on blood orange, oak spirals soaked in gin, and Citra hops.
MY NEIGHBOR’S PORTER / English Porter / ABV 8.0%
A porter birthed out of our love for deep friendships and longing for justice. Brewed with fair trade chocolate harvested in the mountains of Honduras, and cinnamon. then aged on tequila-infused, toasted white oak hand cut by Forged of Wood and Stone (in nearby Gilson).
ANAM CARA / Irish Style Stout / ABV 8.15%
From Celtic tradition meaning, “soul friend.” Throughout history beer as been a conduit for social change. Think of the great German beer halls, the English and Irish pubs, or the Taverns within the original thirteen colonies. Deep and lasting relationships, like our Founding Fathers, or the great literary geniuses, the Inklings, were established over pints of great beer. This is our Irish Style Oatmeal Stout brewed with oats, rye, barley, and local Cluster hops. May this brew revive the old spirit of deep relationships, and spark ideas of social and cultural change.
LIQUID LUCK / Golden Stout / ABV 9.25%
Brewed like an American sweet stout, and with a grain equation that produces a molten gold color, this stout was conditioned on vanilla and coffee beans from Papua New Guinea (fair trade, of course). While “desperately tricky to make, and disastrous to get wrong...if brewed correctly, as this has been, you will find that all your endeavors tend to succeed…at least until the effects wear off. It only works if taken in moderation, as drinking too much (or too often) leads to reckless behavior, giddiness, and the kind of overconfidence that ruins the effects of the luck.” Cool points awarded if you can tell us from where this name is derived.
TRIVIUM IPA / India Pale Ale / ABV 10.25%
Triple the hop, triple the malt, and triple the flavor. With a rich grain bill consisting of Midwestern 2-row barley, accompanied by caramel and rye malts, this is triple hop concoction is influenced by the rich piney IPAs of the Pacific Northwest, and dosed with 25 pounds of honey from Bishop Hill. Our triple is brewed and dry hopped with heavy doses of Centennial and Chinook hops grown right here in Illinois and Simcoe hops from the PNW.
