Recipe & other selections featured:

  • Beer Cocktail "Grecian Breakfast
  • 5oz gin or vodka
  • 1oz orange juice
  • Topped with Son of Juice beer from Maplewood Brewery & Distillery

One quick stir to integrate everything. In a highball glass full of ice. Easy to do at home, no shaking required. Pour the beer slowly though; orange juice can sometimes make carbonation to crazy.

·         Maplewood Brewery & Distillery Son of Juice New England IPA

Son of Juice is a truly his father’s child. A hazy IPA dripping with fruit juice notes. Pilsner malt and oats make a perfect canvas for loads of mosaic, simcoe and nugget hops.

·         De la Costa Red Sangria

Our red sangria is more intensely flavored with cherry and berry flavors finishing with a dash of citrus and sweetness.

·         Around The Bend Puffing Billy American Brown Ale

We love Browns. And you should too! Roasty malts and chocolaty flavors – what’s not to love? Ours is finished with cacao nibs to add another nuanced layer of bitterness and chocolate aroma to the already complex interplay of this well-balanced ale.

·         Begyle Brewing Co. Freebird American Pale Ale

One of the most versatile beers in our lineup. Showcasing Falconers Flight hops, this sessionable brew has aromas of citrus and fresh-cut flowers, leading into a well-balanced blend of lemony hop bitterness and clean malt character. No matter the time of year, Free Bird’s restrained hop profile and clean finish make it a go-to across the board.

·         Baderbräu Chicago Pilsner

Totally sessionable, this bright, hop-forward Pilsener was first introduced in 1989 right here in Chicago. In a time when “craft beer” did not yet exist in Chicago and pure, flavorful beer was virtually unknown in the US aside from imports.
