  • Imperial Oak Brewing
    Imperial Oak Brewing: A Brew Overview When three homebrewers opened Imperial Oak Brewing in 2014, they vowed to always put beer first. To that end, the trio keeps the brewery small, but the flavor big, focusing primarily on high-gravity imperial and barrel-aged brews. Visitors are invited to sip pints in the brewery’s outdoor beer garden, or grab a spot inside its modern, mural-adorned warehouse space. Here’s a quick look at a few of Imperial Oak Brewing’s beers you might find on tap: ’Merica: a dark, robust stout with coffee and cocoa notes, which create a smooth, creamy taste (6.6% ABV) Bermuda Triangle: a mellow-bodied tripel with fruity aromas, which hint at its soft brown sugar and vanilla notes (9.0% ABV) Lord Humongous: a barley wine with a mild, but notable malt presence that offsets its sweetness (10.5% ABV) Prediction?…Pain!: a double IPA whose simcoe and amarillo hops lend a bitter, yet well-balanced flavor (8.5% ABV) Bitter Monk: a Belgian-style IPA that features strong citrus and melon hop notes, and boasts the spiciness of traditional Belgian-style brews.

  • Blue Nose Brewery
    At a growing number of watering holes around Chicago, Blue Nose Brewery's craft beers can be found cascading from bar taps. Though it’s now a staple of Chicago nightlife, the beer started with humble beginnings. Blue Nose got its start inside a spare bedroom in the Old Town neighborhood, beginning with one 15-gallon pot and an old propane stove. In the years since, the operation has grown to 15 barrels, a brewery, and a taproom, but the commitment to balanced beer recipes and local ingredients has held fast. Read on to learn about a few of the brews that helped Blue Nose become a finalist for The Taste of Groupon Awards: XXX Honey: This traditional Belgian Tripel is aged with orange-blossom honey. 9.6% ABV. Pipa: Among the more unique offerings, this American style lager is made with 45% corn, rendering it soft and sweet. 4.5% ABV. Archer Ave IPA: A fruity bouquet of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit, this IPA with an orange-honey hue finishes clean and dry with a subdued bitter aftertaste. The Nothing Brown Ale: This English brown ale finishes dry and includes flavors of coffee and fresh toast. It also includes hints of caramel, vanilla, light oak, and bourbon.
