Can You Dig it? Wiseacre Brewing Now in Cans!

Tagged:

Wiseacre founders Davin and Kellen Bartosch know beer. Their combined journeys to study and perfect their knowledge of beer and brewing has taken them across the US and abroad, including a lengthy stint right here in the Windy City. After returning home to Memphis, they opened Wiseacre Brewing Company, but until now we’ve only seen a smattering of their tasty bombers make it to Chicago. Well we’re happy to report that Wiseacre is taking care of business pumping out sixers; and for that we say thank you, thank you very much.

Welcome to the Pumpkin Patch: Pumpkin Beer

Tagged:

Lattes, waffles, ice cream, pasta, cereal… people can’t get enough pumpkin! While pumpkin is everywhere these days, beer made with pumpkin is actually nothing new. Faced with insufficient supplies of malted barley, 17th-century American colonists instead substituted pumpkin in their ale recipes. So fill your glasses with some of our favorite modern day pumpkin brews and raise a toast to American ingenuity.

Fall is here, and as the air starts to cool and the leaves begin to change, the fruits of the autumnal harvest are all around us. As we sort through bushels of freshly picked apples and mountains of colorful squash, few beverages are more perfectly suited for this time of year than a mug of hard cider. From centuries-old tradition to innovative new blends, each of our featured ciders is delicious in its own way.

Local Liquid: Lombard’s Noon Whistle

Tagged:

Noon Whistle co-founder and brewer Paul Kreiner grew up vacationing in Marquette, Wisconsin where a local tradition left an indelible mark. Each day at noon a whistle blew signaling that it was time to take a break, relax and have lunch. For Paul and many others that also came to mean enjoying a nice, refreshing beer. Determined to prove that big flavor need not mean big alcohol, Noon Whistle set out to brew more “sessionable” brews, the kind of beverage you could enjoy at any time of day.

 

We recently stopped by Noon Whistle’s brewery in order to taste and see what they were all about. With a brand new canning operation up and running, we are happy to announce the arrival of three tap room favorites now available in six packs at a Binny’s near you.

New From Anchor Brewing

Tagged:

San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing is a craft beer pioneer. Not only were they one of the first breweries in the US to brew the long forgotten India Pale Ale style of beer, but in doing so they reintroduced Americans to the beauty of dry hopping. Dry hopping involves adding hops to a beer after the boil, allowing them to slowly leech out a myriad of wonderful hop flavors and big bright hop aromatics without extracting bitterness. Anchor’s latest release introduces their yeast and malty Steam beer to a double dose of dry hopping. Try it side by side with the original and see what a difference some hops can make!

Allagash Brewing Company Binny's

 

Allagash Farm to Face

HIGHLY LIMITED!

Farm to Face begins as a pale ale brewed with Allagash’s famous house yeast strain. After primary fermentation, lactobacillus, pediococcus and 6,000lbs of fresh peaches are added and allowed to quietly rest for nearly a year. The result? It has to be tasted to be believed. Juicy, tart and brimming with fresh peach flavor and aroma, this is one Allagash’s best. Don’t just take our word for it, the beer world agrees.
