Traveling southeast to Flossmoor you'll find the Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery. Matt Van Wyk is one of the restaurant's two brewers and says customers looking for a lime-flavored beer are going to be disappointed.
"That's really not something we're ever going to do," he said. "We take a lot of effort to get all the different flavors in a beer. We feel like we shouldn't mask any of those flavors that we've painstakingly tried to do, with lime." While he says lime-flavored drinks have their place, he prefers just drinking a lemonade to quench his thirst.
For a summer ale, Van Wyk recommends the traditional German wheat beer, Hefeweizen. "It's one of our summer seasonal, lighter beers. It's unfiltered, lighter on alcohol and has a lot of fruity flavors like banana, and spicy flavors like clove," he said.
