Year Round

Screw City Light

Screw City Light is our best selling beer. This is Rockford’s beer. Light in flavor and color. A nose of fresh baked white bread. Crisp and clean on the palate. Flavors we hope are reminiscent of the classic lagers that used to be made right here in Rockford. Screw City Light is our homage to the classic American lager. Enjoy this beer next to a grill after a hard days work, just as America intended.

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!

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.

Deep amber color. Aromas of toasty fruit cake, citrus scone, and honey butter. Supple, crisp, mouthfeel lends to a dry, yet fruity, medium body.
