It’s a good day when @halfacrebeer shows up!
Easily one of our favorite Pale Ales in the country returns in the form of Daisy Cutter, alongside the amped-up Galactic Double Daisy Cutter!
We also received the recent World Beer Cup award-winning Tuna EPA, Vallejo IPA, and Navaja Double IPA!
Saison Avec: Lime & Yuzu.
Brewed with lime zest and juice and then fermented in an oak barrel with yuzu purée and our house culture, this one has a nice balance between the two fruits without either overpowering the base beer.
Look out for this one during Illinois Craft Beer Week, including next Monday night at Pub Royale in Chicago for Saisonathon sponsored by @abvchicago

A friend gave me tickets to tonight’s Cubs game, so I took the opportunity to check out the new location of @smokedaddybbq across from Wrigley Field. @kathrynlainey and I were able to get seats at the window and it was perfect for people watching and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The food was so flavorful and rich that the @halfacrebeer Daisy Cutter provided a reset of my taste buds each time I took a drink. If you haven’t been to one of the Smoke Daddy locations in Chicago, do yourself a favor a go! Get the mac and cheese and beans as your two sides and thank me when you lick the containers. 🤤 Cheers! 🍻
Another chapter in the #craftbeerclash mini series taped today at @lorezbrewing, happy to help by judging a flight (left to right is the dry hopped saison, strawberry kiwi berliner, scotch wee heavy, Belgian quad)
Tiki Time by Pipeworks Brewing | Pale Ale | ABV 9% |
Finding all sorts of fun stuff in the back of my fridge that I've been meaning to try. Very lime and spice forward- the coconut is barely there. Still, a good enough excuse to bring out my beloved #TikiTi 50th Anniversary mug. | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ |
@halfacrebeer Daisy Capra. Gold like deep honey. Rich, piney nose. Deep breathing malt tires that role flavor across the tongue like a chained heavy duty pick up ready for winter in the woods. Delightfully bold yet not overpowering even sitting in the heavyweight division at a light 7.5. This beer is best enjoyed with spicy Asian red meat, or while playing pool. 4.3/5
Truly unique... but where does one start when describing @illuminatedbrewworks White Coffee Milk Stout in a little more detail? Let's start with expectations: (1) I love a good #milkstout , (2) I do not like coffee, (3) I like coffee ice cream. Bottom line is that I figured between the sweet of a milk stout and "white" suggesting lactose would make this ice creamy, I might get a really good desserty beer. Now for the actuals: a hazy brown pour - not black - strong coffee smell with a decidedly sour taste. Not as overbearing on the coffee flavor as the nose feared. Whoa, there... where did #sour come from? I like sours, and a well-executed sour #stout is sublime. This, however, just seemed wrong somehow. The #lactose and sour kept the coffee flavor in check, and it was reasonably creamy... I went back and forth and in the end couldn't decide whether I liked this one or not. @tavour @pandadrinkingbeer #craftbeer#respectcraftbeer#drinklocal#ilbeer#Chicago#Illinois#portugueserooster#toothpickholder
