Hefeweizen

Hazy and straw-colored, as the style dictates. A white head bubbles up and releases aromas of banana and clove that persist when experiencing the flavor. Mild floral notes and a light note of lemon citrus add to the symphony of flavors in this summer favorite. Prost!

Peacock Pale Ale

Pale gold and highly quaffable, our Peacock Pale Ale is a tribute to the legacy of Jonathan Peacock and the Peacock family who were the original founders of our beautiful river front location. Earthy honeydew aromas and flavors are apparent, along with bright grapefruit peel. These refreshing fruity flavors balance perfectly with malt flavors of toasted caramel. Hops and malt are equally displayed in this Midwestern Pale Ale that finishes slightly sweet and dry.

Prairie Street West Coast IPA

Oh! Darling… Deep amber colors translate into spicy citrus, floral and toasty caramel aromas. This dry, yet fruity IPA has a flavorful medium body and is delightfully hoppy the whole way through. Flavors of citrus and grapefruit are the stars here. While those carry on, you’ll notice a slight resinous character that lingers and invites you to have another sip. Come together! And enjoy this refreshing IPA down on Prairie Street!

Rocktown Brown

Our one year-round “dark” beer offering is as misleading as Alice Cooper’s stage presence compared to his real personality. Deep, warm brown colors may convey a heavy and rich ale, but the reality is, this American Nut Brown style ale is light in body and surprisingly dry. Roasty flavors of coffee and bakers chocolate resonate throughout this glass of refreshing ale. Cheers to the rock gods for making great music to drink beer to!

Peach Wheat

Beautifully clear, golden brown, an almost peach color. Like a home run rising out of the park, fresh peach fragrance jumps out of the glass letting you know this beer is jammed with peach puree. On your first sip, you’ll think you just bit into a peach in the heart of the harvest. After a couple more sips, the subtleties become apparent and you realize this beer loves to show off it’s peach character, but the pale, bonlander, and of course wheat malts, hold back the overpowering sweetness to keep this beer smooth and highly drinkable for any palate. Drink up! After all, this is “a beer of your own!”

Copper and amber colors glow like a campfire in the fall. Medium bodied and refreshing. Sit back and enjoy the caramel notes blending with the subtle earthy hop character. This one's at home next to a campfire in the fall, but versatile enough to be enjoyed year round.

The Grey Escape

Grisette translates to "little grey" and is a "farmhouse" style ale historically brewed to refresh miners in the Belgian region of Hainaut. Bright, floral flavors of lemongrass give a respite from the dark grey of the mines. Classic Belgian ale flavors of pear and pepper are prevalent, yet are slightly subdued compared to its more popular cousin, Saison. Light in alcohol and body, this beer is the perfect escape from a hard day's work.
