What’s available?

Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale, 6.5% abv. Sixth $100 / Half $180

Our best seller. Brewed only with grain and sugar unencumbered by the heat of the kiln, we create a hazy, golden body. Apex Predator gets its teeth from a generous Crystal dry-hopping that completes the dry finish with a fruity bite.

Tooth and Claw Dry Hopped Lager, 5.0% abv. $90 / $165

The Field Museum's house beer, named in homage to Sue the T-rex. Crisp, clean pilsner dry-hopped with Perle, a German aromatic hop variety.

Troublesome Gose, 4.3% abv. $90 / $165

German-style blended wheat beer. Coriander and salt are added at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouth feel.

***NEW YEAR ROUND IN 2019!***
Very, Very Far Belgian style Ale
, 6.0% abv. $100 / $190

We add a twist on the spirit of Belgian mixed fermentation by utilizing our new favorite non-traditional wine yeast, Torulaspora delbrueckii. Torulaspora enhances fruitiness while a classic Belgian ale yeast imparts a Belgian spice character. The Rakau/Sterling hop profile is built to compliment the fruit ester character from Torulaspora delbrueckii and spicy character from the Belgian ale strain. This golden Belgian style ale has subtle fruity notes of apricot, lychee, currant, and honey layered with noble hop spice and peppercorns phenols notes.
