Our Beverage Menu

American Lager, 0.5 l

A classic, double mashed, American Lager brewed with Riggs-Grown 6 Row Barley and Riggs-Grown Low Oil White Corn. It’s fermented, conditioned, and lagered in our brewery for a full six weeks for an unbeatable smoothness.

$5

Hefeweizen, 0.5 l

This German style wheat beer is brewed with Riggs-Grown Wheat. It has a rich banana aroma, but finishes clean, slightly tart, and refreshing. Brewed by a German certified brewmaster wo learned his craft in Bavaria, so you know you’re getting the real deal.

$5

Red Lager, 0.4 l

Dark German malts are used to create a red color and subtle fruitiness that is unlike any other beer on the market. A healthy dose of American aroma hops accentuate the fruitiness and provide a refined bitterness that leaves you ready for another drink.

$6

India Pale Lager, 0.4 l

Being big fans of lager fermentations, we used a German Lager yeast in an American IPA recipe to create a truly blank canvas for the finest aroma hop varieties to shine through. Our IPL allows you to experience Citra and Centennial hops to their fullest. yeast in an American IPA recipe to create a truly blank canvas for the finest aroma hop varieties to shine through. Our IPL allows you to experience Citra and Centennial hops to their fullest.

$6

Citraweizen, 0.5 l

Citraweizen’s recipe is based on our Hefeweizen, but we lightened up the color a bit and dry hopped it with a whole bunch of a hop called Citra. True to their name, Citra Hops give this beer a citrus aroma and flavor that pair perfectly with our wheat beer’s traditional banana character. Citraweizen is the ideal beer to help you beat this Illinois summer heat.

$7

Double IPL, 0.4 l

Double IPL is not a balanced beer. It is high in alcohol and is extremely bitter. It has a powerful citrus and passion fruit aroma that comes from the reckless amount of exotic hops that we dumped into the fermentation tank. Although the inspiration for this beer was the West Coast Imperial IPA, we couldn’t help ourselves from putting our own spin on this style. Instead of adding sugar to the boil kettle to help dry out the beer’s finish, we used a hearty dose of whole kernel corn from our farm. Instead of using the typical American Ale yeast strain, we used our house German Lager yeast. If you don’t love hops, you’ll hate this beer. But, if you are a confirmed hop-head, we think you’ll really enjoy our take on this modern American classic.

$7

6-Row Pilsner, 0.5 l

6-Row Pils is a beer born from two of our favorite things: lager beer and local ingredients. This pale lager is brewed with a blend of Riggs-grown 6-Row barley and whole kernel Riggs-grown White Corn. These traditional American brewing grains give 6-Row Pils its distinctive, yet balanced, flavor.
We sourced all of the hops for this beer from our friends at Hallowed Hops Farm in Lewistown, Illinois. A sizable charge of Illinois-grown Chinook hops early in the boil gives this beer a substantial bitterness (which is appropriate for a pilsner style beer). Illinois-grown Crystal hops lend hints of lemongrass that play nicely with faint hints of grain. 
 

$6

Helles, 0.5 l

Helles is the official beverage of Munich’s beer gardens. This German Lager is light in color, but that doesn’t mean that it lacks flavor. In fact, that’s what makes Helles so special. Its delicate floral and herbal hop aromas blend perfectly with a subtle malt sweetness. That grainy sweet flavor is followed by a dry, almost champagne-like finish. 

$6

Illinois Kölsch, 0.5 l

Kölsch is a light and pale German Ale that is known for its extreme drinkability and slight fruitiness. Each year, we brew Illinois Kölsch with 100% Illinois grown ingredients.

$6

Pilsner, 0.5 l

Riggs Pilsner is a dry, crisp, and refreshing beer. We used 100% imported German barley malt and Hallertau hops to create this summertime classic. It’s hoppy, but not in the American sense. Classic German hop varieties, Hersbrucker and Mittelfruh, give the beer a uniquely floral and herbal aroma and an elegantly bitter finish.
