Ballast Point Brewing Company

 

Ballast Point Sea Rose

Ballast Point Sea Rose is a lively new wheat ale that delivers remarkably natural cherry flavor. The finish is pleasantly tart, but not puckering and is accented by hints of sweet baking spice. If you’re looking for something unique and sessionable, this one is a keeper. Yet another delicious fruit beer from

 

Ballast Point Bonito Blonde

California loves their blondes, and the latest from Ballast Point is a real beauty. A pronounced malty aroma is complemented by a subtle minerality; giving way to a refreshingly smooth body and a satisfying finish. While not quite as sweet, Bonito’s fruity yeastiness and soft malty mouthfeel reminded us of a much requested yet frustratingly unavailable farmhouse ale from Wisconsin.

Cigar of the Month: Black Market Barber Pole

Tagged:

March brings thoughts of green beer, parades, and of course, a barber pole wrapped black market that will make everyone feel Irish. The Filthy Hooligans are back in limited quantities so get them while you can because just like last St. Patricks day these will soon be a distant slightly fuzzy memory.

Confessions of a Mixologist: CHee-Key

Tagged:

This cheeky cocktail is sour and bitter with a sweet finish. It reminds us of a melted Popsicle on a hot summer day. Bartender Angie selected the gin for its key lime and juniper flavors. It’s distilled locally in the heart of Chicago at CH Distillery on Randolph Street, just less than two miles from both our Downtown and South Loop locations.

Confessions of a Mixologist: On Second Thought…

Tagged:

On Second Thought is a twist on the classic cocktail, The Last Word. Bartender Colleen wanted to use Rhubarb Tea Liqueur, an 80-proof spirit that’s a blend of rhubarb, lemon, and beets, along with spices like cardamom, pink peppercorns, and coriander. It compliments the gin well and creates a mix of floral and bitter flavors with a tart bite – very similar to the taste of Sweetheart candies. Super delish!

The Whiskey Hotline: Casa Maestri Tequila Blanco Flask

Tagged:

With the weather warming up, its hard to beat a crisp, clean, citrusy blanco tequila. Casa Maestri produces many different tequila brands out of their distillery (NOM-1438 for you tequila geeks at home) but this one in particular caught our attention with it’s added value, a flask! Not just any flask, but a 1.75 liter flask. Not only is the tequila great, but since the flask goes to 11, we mean 1.75, this is not a deal to pass on.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Pink Pearl

Tagged:

The real MVP in this cocktail is the Combier Pamplemousse. It gets its flavor and light pink color by steeping hand-picked rose petals in neutral alcohol. Pretty cool, huh? Typically paired with Champagne, Bartender Brittney decided to mix it with tequila. Our Pink Pearl is the ultimate patio sipper and is as simple and delicious as it gets.
