Rift on session ales

There's been some good buzz about session beers lately; having been brought to the cover of a few beer periodicals. It's a great topic, and certainly bringing attention to some overlooked styles.

We wanted to brew an ale reminiscent of the real ales of the UK; rich in flavor, refreshing, and a low gravity meant to enjoy during the work day or throughout the evening. Armed with loads of caramel malts and fruity English hops, I feel pleased that we hit our mark introducing our Hammersmith Pub Ale

We'll be tapping this tasty ale on Tuesday the 29th, just in time for a hangover cure from the Chicago Craft Beer Week


Craft Beer Week Tapping

Hi all, we're getting into the spirit of the Chicago Craft Beer Week and have just tapped a very limited amount of the HiFi Ryewine at the bar. Come on out and enjoy!

Bronze IPL

Just wanted to acknowledge our recent accolade at the World Beer Cup that was held in San Diego at the beginning of the month, we were honored with a Bronze Medal in the English IPA category for our Intercontinental Pale Lager!

We still have it on tap, but just for a short minute further, so please come on down and try it!


Half Day Hefeweizen Tapping

Well, it's getting that time of year again when those partial work days seem to beg to be taken; early afternoons, sunshine, maybe a beach day, and of course some refreshing, delicious Hefeweizens!

We'll be tapping our Half Day Hefeweizen tomorrow, Tuesday the 15th to welcome this fine burst of sunny weather we've had lately and hopefully in good promise of continued fine weather.

It'll also be our pint special through the Chicago Craft Beer Week, priced at $4 throughout the week, so come on down! We'll also have maps and all the goodies that you can snag to help celebrate the city's own craft beer week
