Lakefront Pumpkin Lager
Lakefront Pumpkin Lager, Milwaukee, WI
A frothy entry leads to an off-dry medium-to-full body of intense cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and candied yam flavor. Our Pumpkin Lager is one of the few pumpkin lagers available in the world. Real pumpkin and pie spice join Munich and
caramel malts in our brewhouse, then lager for four weeks in our cellar, and come together with all the flavors of a lush
pumpkin pie. The crisp lager profile and medium body let cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and candied yam flavors meet the nutty,
toasty malt base. No need for whipped cream.
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.

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.

(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.
Revolution Foreknowledge Saison
Saison · 5.0% · Chicago, IL
Afterthought Brewing may appear as the opposite of Revolution Brewing when it comes to size, approach, and specialization. However, we've maintained a foreknowledge of their upcoming success since experiencing the unique point of view they bring to saison fans and jumped at the opportunity to work together on a unique set of recipes. Foreknowledge is the clean side of this home and home collaboration brewed at Revolution and highlights one of the most exciting experimental hops we've sampled in quite some time: HBC #1019. The hop's interplay with our 50/50 blend of Belgian and Lithuanian Farmhouse yeasts yields a dynamic sip, with phenolic spice, passionfruit & stone fruit character, while finishing silky and dry
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.

Chimay Cinq Cents Tripel
Bières de Chimay, Baileux Belgium
With its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer’s flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.
Chimay Grand Reserve Dark Strong Ale
Bieres de Chimay, Baileux Belgium
Its flavour noticed when tasting it, only accentuates the pleasant sensations perceived in the aroma, while revealing a light but pleasant touch of roasted malt.

Chimay Première Dubbel
Bières de Chimay, Baileux Belgium

The monks did not want sell a beer that would compete directly with the lighter style beers in the region and harm the local economy for which they worked to reinvigorate. These local beers were known as “household beer.” So, the first brand they brought to market was the Chimay Red in 750ml bottles. It became famous for its dark copper color, rich creamy foam and nutritious quality. The beer gives forth distinct apricot aromas and has a pleasantly light and silky mouthfeel which finishes with a touch of bitterness.
