Glass of seltzer from Alter Brewing Company

Did someone say Seltzer?

Alter Brweing Company is getting into the Seltzer game.  Check out their Beta Seltzer, which is a citrusy-tasting seltzer with strawberry and lime aromas.

A True Original

Goldfinger Brewing Company's Original Lager is fresh off the canning line and hitting distribution.  Keep an eye out and grab yourself a four-pack!  If you haven't had "The OG", this is a beer that truly transcends generations.  You may have enjoyed one with your father or grandfather watching a ball game, or you may be enjoying one around a campfire with your neighbors.  Cold, crisp, light but flavorful.

Glass of Stache Strong

Stache Strong

Whiskey Hill is kicking off Illinois Craft Beer Week with Stache Strong.  Here's a chance to #DrinkForGood, as a portion of the proceeds will go to the Stache Strong foundation who is working hard in the battle against brain cancer.

Metal Monkey Logo

Two from Metal Monkey

Two distinctly different beers, but both have the great taste you expect from the Monkeys.  Bikini Bottom and Asmodeous will be back on Thursday.  If you don't know Asmodeous, it's a big monster.  This Russian Imperial Stout is big with hints of chocolate and coffee.  Bikini Bottom is on the opposite end of the spectrum.  This is a pineapple gose, with coriander and Himalayan salt to give this a unique flair.

Two ottles and a glass of Strewn Field

Strewn Field

The third release for Whiskey Hill during Illinois Craft Beer Week.  This Russian Imperial Stout features toasted coconut, cassia bark, and Ghana cocoa nibs.  Only available for on-site consumption on Thursday, 5/20.

Things We Don't Say - Miskatonic Style

Miskatonic's spin on Things We Don't Say is the regular beer with a West Coast spin on it.  This will be hitting four packs and the taps on Friday.

Rt66 Old School Brewing's Bomber Shandy

A Summertime Treat

Rt66 Old School Brewing's Bomber Shandy is a pure summer time treat.  It's a tasty wheat beer with that beautiful lemon flavor.  Perfect for days like these.

Cikd Fresh Joy from SKeleton Key Brewery

Cold Fresh Joy

To me, every beer is cold fresh joy.  Although, when you drink this one from Skeleton Key Brewery, you'll know why it has the name.  It's a Helles-style beer that can basically pair with anything.  It's a perfect go-to fridge beer.
