Screw City Light

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 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!

A smooth and malty English pub standard with balanced hop character and a crisp finish.

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!”

Blue and purple hue contrasted with a creamy, white head.

Nor'Easter

Tropical fruit notes jump out immediately with mango and guava in the forefront. All thanks to Mackinac hops, these flavors are the showcase of this incredible beer. A bit of grapefruit flavor from some Citra hops to balance out this quencher. A true IPA in New England fashion; this won’t be your typical one-note brew. Perfect for a warm spring day along the river.
