Our 5th Anniversary Party!
at Mousetrap, 11am until..?

All day deep cuts and rarities from our archives alongside the first crack at never-before-released beers, collaborations, and favors we've called in from some of our local and far flung brewery kinfolk.

Wilds! Stouts! Dumb lagers! Food trucks! New merch!

There will be staggered, timed releases, but for the most part beers will be put on and replaced as kegs pop all day. Stay tuned to the social medias as we tease out hints and keep everyone updated throughout the party but mostly we look forward to surprising you. (Here's the Facebook event page for your reference.)

New beers we're releasing at the shindig...

The Berm: Native fermented Belgian Style Ale inoculated with yeasts harvested from spontaneously fermenting apple cider. Complex interplay between dark soil (specifically petrichor for you taking the SATs next week), hay, tannic apple skin, and dried apricots with a subtle, balancing tartness. (draft only Sunday)

Barrel Aged Corybantic: Wild Ale brewed with Side Projectmashed using 100% barrel aged water then barrel-aged in oak for four years with apple must. (draft only Sunday)

Yet to be named Calvados foedre-aged Flemish Blonde: Unabashedly funky Flemish Blonde Ale with rich notes of apple spice, brandy, and caramel teased from our 14 year-old Calvados foedre imported from French Normandy. The first ever pull from our foedre farm! (draft only Sunday)

And the food truck schedule for good measure..

11-1: Big Star
12-6: Fat Shallot
5-8: The Corner Farmacy
7-10: The Roaming Hog

Doors open at 11am. No tickets, no cover. We can't wait to get weird with y'all!

at all the other Cool Spots....

Wednesday, May 30
Jonesy & Alien
Landmark Century Theater, 2828 N Clark St

Many thanks to Lincoln Park's Landmark Theater for hosting this screening and tapping Jonesy! Most likely the only time it will be on draft outside the Mousetrap. Showtime is 9:45pm but we'll be there early to mix and mingle. Tickets are only $10! Let us know you're coming on Facebook.
