Beer Buzz: Only Child Red Rover

Tagged:

Sometimes we get to do some fun stuff… Like brew with our favorite breweries. This time around, Downers Grove beer consultant, Vince Bingen spent a day with Only Child Brewing of Northbrook.
 

Only Child Red Rover

 
What’s the story behind Red Rover?
Red Rover is an Imperial Red Ale that was meant to be a homebrew that my friend Joe and I came up with. Joe and I loved this beer a lot but could not brew it, because our homebrew set up requires us to be outside and my little apartment balcony just wasn’t working. I told Ben from Only Child about our dilemma and he said COME ON OVER!

Beer Buzz: Half Acre Expands Distribution

Tagged:

This announcement has been a long time coming: We are proud to report that Half Acre beers are now available at all Chicagoland Binny’s locations.  For years, thirsty beer drinking Binny’s shoppers in Orland Park, Willowbrook, Algonquin, McHenry, Naperville, St. Charles, Glen Ellyn, Plainfield, Downers Grove, Bolingbrook, and Evergreen Park have been deprived of delicious offerings such as Over Ale and Gossamer.  But the suburban Half Acre drought is now over, and in our opinion there is no better way to celebrate than with a cold 16oz can of Daisy Cutter.

Beer Buzz: What Kind of Craft Your Own 6 Pack Are You?

Tagged:

We first introduced the Craft Your Own Six Pack racks back in November of 2011, and we were blown away by its success. You have spoken, and we’re listening! So we’re bringing an even bigger selection to these racks. Many Binny’s locations offered 80 or 160 craft beers to choose from, but now that number is jumping by at least 80 beers!

 
Our Craft Your Own Six Pack feature offers a constantly changing selection of craft beer, from local to global, seasonal to everyday craft best buys. And at the low price of $9.99 per 6 pack, it’s a great steal. Find out what kind of “Craft Your Own 6 Pack” you are after the jump!

Sunday Blue Sunday

bluesunday-2-4-2014The 2014 New Holland Blue Sunday is here. Good news: it’s yours for under eight bucks (it used to cost more than an Andrew Jackson). Better news: it also tastes better than ever. We think the secret might be the touch of kombucha blended in.

 

Jamaican Us Crabbie

Our second alcoholic ginger beer is hitting soon. It’s called Royal Jamaican. Crabbie’s is good, and this one is too, but a little different. Less malty, more ginger spice, lighter in body. If you like Crabbie’s, try this one too.
