Brooklyn: Bel Air Sour (NY)
Brooklyn Bel Air Sour is full of surprises. Our sour ale starts up with bright notes of tropical fruit yet finishes crisp and gently tart. It's a trip that's laid back, breezy, and completely refreshing.
Bell's: Oberon (MI)
Seasonal Wheat Ale
** Definitely a local favorite!!
Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with our signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.
Lagunitas: Hop Water (Non-Alcoholic!)
NOW ON TAP Bodem!!
Half Acre Beer Co. announces its newest core beer:
Bodem IPA, a New American IPA smack in the middle of West and East Coast styles, with a flavor profile that marks a new note for the brewery. Bodem—Dutch for “soil”—is a reference to earthiness, to the creation of new landscapes and the transforming potential of hop varietals. Bodem IPA (6.8%)

New Wine Of The Month!!
Domäne Wachau Grüner Veltliner 2018
Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced vineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. „Federspiel“ stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.
Chosen for their specific microclimate and meagre primary rock soils, the vineyard sites for Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. It exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau characterized by fresh fruit and a pronounced minerality.
Bright yellow-green in colour, this wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, hints of mango, balanced with delicate herbal notes. This Federspiel is a traditional example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish.
This wine is a perfect pairing for fish, seafood, and poultry as well as the traditional Austrian cuisine “Wiener Schnitzel”.

Big Chicks : Enjoy Illinois
"Big Chicks in Uptown, Tweet’s boozy sibling, has an amazing back patio, fun atmosphere, and well-priced drinks. If that’s not a winning combination we don’t know what is, which is why this place is a sure-fire favorite of locals. Don’t miss the free summer BBQ on Sundays and their oh-so-delicious vodka lemonades! This LGBTQ staple also features DJs and dancing after dark in the adjoining Tweet space."
