Founders is known for complex expressions of classic styles of beer. But for Mosaic Promise, they take a step back. Brewed with a single malt - Golden Promise - and a single hop - Mosaic - Founders created this beautifully simple beer. A hit at the Founders Taproom, Founders bottled Mosaic Promise for this one limited release.

|Our two most sought after pumpkin beers from years past, Southern Tier Pumking and Dogfish Head Punkin, finally have enough supply that we can send an email out telling the world how awesome they are. Do you like Grandmas pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner or freshly baked pumpkin muffins? Then Pumking is the beer for you. Packaged in a 22oz bottle and clocking in at 8.6% ABV, Pumking is the ideal beer to share with family and friends alongside your favorite dessert.|
|Looking for something a little more drinkable, but still packing a pumpkin punch? We recommend Dogfish Head Punkin. Punkin helped launch the Pumpkin beer craze in America and consistently remains one of the top tier pumpkin beers in terms of quality year in and year out. The balance between hops, malt, spice, and pumpkin flavors is spot on.|
|Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest has been a staple around the world during this time of the year for centuries. This beer is the epitome of balance and drinkability, to go along with a toasty caramel malt finish. The ever so small bite on the finish screams Germany.|
|It was incredibly disappointing when Goose Island decided to axe longtime seasonal staple Harvest Ale, a solid brew that we had grown accustomed to enjoying every fall. But that disappointment ceased to exist after our first sip of Harvest Ale's replacement, Rambler IPA. Rambler and Harvest are actually very similar, both being mildly hopped and drinkable session type IPA's with a more than noticeable malt presence.|
|O'Fallon Pumpkin Ale is one of our Fall favorites year in and year out. We love how the pumpkin flavor takes center stage and the spices, while present, take the backseat as a balancing act. A pumpkin beer that is oddly quenching, it is far too easy to make your way through a 6 pack. Whether you choose bottles or cans this is a winner.|
|One of the finest US-made Oktoberfest beers is finally in enough supply that we can tell all of our friends. Left Hand Oktoberfest has always been a hidden gem, but in very small supply. This lager holds its own with the best of Germany. Biscuity, toasty, and caramel malt flavors abound and are balanced by just enough of an herbal hop kick. This is marzen done right. Dangerously drinkable and full of complex malt flavors. Grab it while you can!|
|Two Brothers Atom Smasher is one of the stronger Oktoberfest beers you can find at a whopping 7.7% abv. The body is noticeably fuller than others, and loaded with caramel malts and spicy hops. The high abv certainly doesn't seem that high as a sweet roundness from the oak aging has balanced it out. This local favorite is another one that always sells out quickly, so get it before it's gone!|
|Revolution Oktoberfest is another domestically made marzen that can hold its own with anything Germany has to offer. This beer strikes a near perfect balance of bready malts and spicy and herbaceous hops. A satisfying malt complexity and a crisp finish lend this beer a drinkability more like a summer blonde ale than a hearty Fall seasonal. The tuba player on the can is just an added bonus.|
|Fall is also cider season. Our CIDER SELECTION is larger and more varied than ever with a seasonal variety that mimics beer. Ace Pumpkin cider is one of our favorites and gives just enough pumpkin pie sweetness and spice to tame the lightly tart cider. Another one to try is the new kid on the block, Seattle Cider. Offering Semi Sweet and Dry varieties in 4pk cans as well as a line of seasonal flavors in 22z bottles, Seattle gives us some outstanding options for flavorful yet drinkable ciders perfect for Fall weather.|

Great Lakes 6 pack bottles
reg. $9.99 $8.99 w/Binny's Card
Straight to you from Cleveland, Ohio, comes classic styles at a great price. Our obvious seasonal choice is their delicious Oktoberfest, a Marzen-style lager. Oktoberfests are designed so you can drink lots of them – a refreshing change after all those sessionable summer IPAs.
Unibroue 4 pack bottles
$8.99-$9.99 w/Binny's Card
The Beer Buzz recently visited the Unibroue brewery, and we have to say we wish we could get more of their everyday, low-alcohol beers here in the US. Until then, Blanche de Chambly will have to do. The Canadian brewery gets a lot of love for Fin du Monde, and rightly so - it's one of the best tripels in the world - but we have a new appreciation for this balanced wheat.
Deschutes 6 pack bottles
reg. $8.99-$9.99 $7.99 w/Binny's Card
Here is your last chance to grab some Twilight, their summer ale, before the release of Jubileale. We don't know about you, but we aren't quite ready for winter seasonals yet, so we're enjoying this balanced, crisp and refreshing summer ale while we still can.
Abita 6 pack bottles
reg. $8.99 $7.99 w/Binny's Card
Despite all logic, Abita continues to fly under the radar of most craft beer fans. It is mind boggling, really. They offer great craft beer at good prices every day. We're big fans of Turbodog, their rich brown ale. A great style, and even better as the weather cools.
Big Sky 6 pack bottles
reg. $8.49 $7.99 w/Binny's Card
Speaking of delicious English style brown ales, don't forget about Big Sky's classic Moose Drool. One of our favorite styles, one of our favorite states, and one of our favorite breweries that focuses on classic styles with perfect balance. Get back to basics.
Brewery Vivant 4 pack cans
reg. $9.99 $8.99 w/Binny's Card
Belgian style brews in a can? You don't see it very often, but these guys do it well. See what you're missing - try Triomphe, their Belgian style IPA. It has a great balance of fruity, spicy yeasts and citrusy hops. By the way, if you ever have a chance to visit their brewery in Grand Rapids, the food is fantastic and the brewery is in an old church. Very cool. Until then, drink this.
Ayinger 16.9oz bottle
$2.99 w/Binny's Card
Ayinger makes what might be the best German beer on our shelves, and right now, it's on sale for a stupid low price. That includes what we think might be the best Oktoberfest in the world. For real, the best. Chicago beer geeks, that's 2.99 for a big bottle of beer. All the way from Germany! Can you imagine?
