Miller Brewing Co. Milwaukee Wisconsin

It also won the gold medal for best American-style Lager or Light Lager at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.
Virtue Brut Cider
Virtue Cider, Fennville, Michigan
The Michigan harvest of apples starts in late summer, with the sun still bright and the leaves green. As autumn turns cool, trees turn brilliant orange, yellow, and red; and so do the apples. We use all sorts of Michigan apples grown on local family farms. The blend of these heirloom apples creates a complexity of flavor impossible to achieve with just a few varieties.
Michigan Harvest is crisp and tart, starting with the scent of the orchard, a hint of oak, and finishing with a touch of sweetness.
This cider celebrates apple harvest as well as the autumn's hearty cuisine. Try pairing with roast pig, aged cheddar, or traditional Thanksgiving fare.
Gregory Hall founded Virtue Cider in 2011. He is known for his 20-year tenure as brewmaster at the Goose Island Beer Company, having won 14 consecutive Great American Beer Festival medals and pioneered bourbon barrel-aged beer with Bourbon County Stout. In the spring of 2011, Hall left Goose Island and embarked on a two-month pilgrimage to study the craft of cider, touring and tasting at top cidermakers in England and France. He brought his extensive experience and innovative style to launch Virtue Cider first in the Roscoe Village neighborhood in Chicago. In 2013, Hall brought the cidermaking venture as close as possible to one of the United States' best apple-growing states of Michigan and launched Virtue Cider in Fennville, Michigan.
Duchesse de Bourgogne Flanders Red Sour
Verhaeghe Brewery Sint-Dierikserf, Belgium
This is a delicious sour. Duchesse de Bourgogne is the traditional top fermented reddish-brown ale from the West-Flanders region of Belgium.

After the first and secondary fermentation, the beer goes for maturation into the oak barrels for 18 months. The final product is a blend of younger 8 months old beer with 18 months old beer. This refined ale also known as “The Burgundies of Belgium” 100% natural and unpasteurized
Lakefront Riverwest Stein Amber Lager
Riverwest Stein Beer | Lakefront Brewery, Inc. Milwaukee Wisconsin
Our flagship beer, named after the hardworking neighborhood in which Lakefront Brewery was founded. Pours a brilliant amber with a bubbly off-white head.

A balanced maltiness with just a hint of sweetness dominates the flavor, with a crisp hop bite in the finish. A joy to drink; no wonder it's Milwaukee's favorite craft beer.
Local Option Outlawger
Local Option Brewery, Chicago Illinois
Outlawger is designed to deliver fresh German lager to American soil. What’s the secret you ask?

Consider this beer another victory for the Allies.

Unibroue Blanche De Chambly Witbier
Unibroue, Quebec Canada
(White of Chambly) was the first bottle refermented ale produced by Unibroue. It is brewed from a blend of pale barley malt, wheat malt and unmalted wheat, to which we blend selected spices and hops. Blanche de Chambly is only partially filtered, retaining its natural cloud of yeast that is characteristic of the original white ales brewed during the Middle Ages.
With notes of dried orange peel and coriander seeds, this brew is a worthy representative of classic Belgian-style white wheat beers. To date, it has won more than 34 international medals, including being named “The World’s Best White Beer" on numerous occasions. Unibroue is proud to brew the most popular white beer in Quebec.

Bell's Two Hearted IPA
Bell's Brewing Inc., Comstock, Michigan
This is the bench mark for an American I.P.A. Bell's Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.

Westmalle Trappist Dubbel
Brouwerij der Trappisten Van Westmalle, Westmalle Abbey, Belgium
When monastic communities began to brew an ale for sale to the public, it was often a stronger brew than the ale the community consumed in the abbey. Brewing scholars aren't certain, but in the days before universal literacy, this "second style" could have had the barrels marked with two X's . . . which possibly led to the name "dubbel."
Brown-amber color, subtle dark-malt aroma balanced by Belgian yeast character. Deeply malty, with a gentle, dry finish that hints at tropical fruit.
Anchor Brewing Company, San Francisco, California
With deep black color, a thick, creamy head, rich chocolate, toffee and coffee flavors, and full-bodied smoothness, Anchor Porter is the epitome of a handcrafted dark beer.
A blend of specially roasted pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with our top-fermenting yeast, creates complexity without bitterness. The brew is hopped at a high rate, and naturally carbonated. The result is dark in the glass, but surprisingly light on the palate.
Anchor Porter became the first modern American porter style beer when it was introduced in 1972. Over 40 years later, our porter continues to reward those who look beyond its intimidating appearance to discover its smooth, full-bodied drinkability. Anchor Porter is the definitive American Porter.

Brouwerij De Dolle Brouwers Dulle Teve
Brouwerij De Dolle Brouwers - Diksmuide, Belgium
De Dulle Teve is brewed in the tradition of a Belgian Triple. Its high density stems from large amounts of pale malt increased with pale candi sugar in the brew kettle. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned.
De Dulle Teve keeps two to three years without major changes in taste. Further maturing, up to 10 years, will cause it to darken a little and lose some of its bitterness. The bittering of about 30 IBU is due to Goldings hops in the brew kettle.
