Five Things to Know About 5 Rabbit Cerveceria
The bright colors and vivid illustrations covering the labels on 5 Rabbit’s beers are a perfect reflection of the company’s ethos. Vive piixan, an ancient Mayan term meaning “free spirit,” is the phrase that guides every decision the company makes. Read on to learn more about this creative, Latin-inspired brewery:
Their beers are named after gods. The company’s 5 series of brews—5 Rabbit, 5 Flower, 5 Grass, 5 Lizard, and 5 Vulture—take their names from the Aztec Ahuiteteo, deities who symbolized over-indulgence and surplus.
They use some unusual—but delicious—ingredients. From the 5 Vulture amber ale’s hints of ancho chili to the Yodo Con Leche imperial porter’s earthy Costa Rican coffee, there are tasty, subtle nods to the brewery’s Latin roots in many of its beers.
They brew award-winning beer. 5 Lizard, the brewery’s Latin-style witbier, won a gold medal in the fruit wheat beer category at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival.
You can take a page out of their brewing playbook. Randy Mosher, 5 Rabbit’s creative director, has written several authoritative books on beer, including Mastering Homebrew: The Complete Guide to Brewing Delicious Beer.
In the summer, they make popsicle-beer hybrids. Named after the Latin popsicle-like treat, 5 Rabbit’s paletas combine high-quality fruit pulp, spices, and wheat to create a refreshing drink perfect for warm-weather months.

Five Things to Know About BuckleDown Brewing
Founded in 2013, BuckleDown Brewing is helping bring Chicago’s craft-beer boom to the suburbs. Read on to learn more about this small-batch brewery:
Being here is almost like taking a brewery tour. The taproom’s open floor plan lets you see the tanks and aging barrels. Brewmaster Ike Orcutt can probably tell you what batch you’re drinking.
It used to be an auto shop. Ike and co-owner Sean Mahoney converted the space into a brewery and a sleek seating area with exposed wooden beams, a metal-paneled bar, and bright-yellow barstools.
The names are just as creative as the beers. Two of the most popular pours are Belt & Suspenders American IPA and Painted Turtle extra pale ale.
You can get beer to go. Select beers come in cans, and anything on tap is available in growlers.
It’s BYO food. There’s no kitchen, but local food trucks sometimes park outside.
