Finch's Beer Company
After launching in early 2011 with just two beers on its menu, Finch's Beer Company has expanded into a full craft brewery. At the Chicago-based facility, seasoned brewmasters blend high-quality ingredients, such as American hops and flavored malts, into a core lineup of five beers. These include the Fascist Pig, a dry-hopped American red ale brewed with caramel malts, the Threadless IPA, a hoppy concoction devised in collaboration with the local design company, and the formidable Secret Stache Stout, which is a subtly sweet fusion of vanilla beans and chocolate malt. Though they're available in cans at bars throughout the city, these brews also flow freely on regularly scheduled brewery tours. Each guided visit introduces guests to the equipment and brewing process, including the part where the brewers milk the hops from the pink elephants.
