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.
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.
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.
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.

Schwarzbier, 0.4 l
Schwarzbier, is German for “Black Beer”. It is an extremely dark, well hopped, medium strength lager. Schwarzbier‘s complexity is derived from its heavy use of dark, roasted, and smoked barley malt. It’s a roasty beer, with a hint of smoky sweetness that’s balanced with a robust hop bitterness. Staying true to its German Lager heritage, it has an incredibly clean, crisp finish.
Doppelbock, 0.4 l
Doppelbock is the quintessential strong German Lager. It delivers loads of grain derived complexity; dark toasted bread, notes of figs and raisins, and just a hint of roast. But what makes Doppelbock so special is – in true lager fashion – it finishes dry and incredibly clean. This beer was brewed in traditional German style, without compromise. Double decoction mashing and months of cold lagering give this beer both a depth of character and balance.
Barleywine, 0.25 l
Barleywine is the strongest beer style that we ever make here at Riggs. We brew this beer exclusively with malted barely that was grown in a single field on the Riggs Family Farm. Due to the varying local weather conditions from year to year, each year’s Barleywine is unique. This year’s version has a delicate aroma of honey and toast, with a hint of white grapes. Barleywine‘s flavor is deep and layered. Dark bread blends into malty sweetness. The finish is clean, except for some lingering alcohol warmth…. just enough to remind you that this beer is nearly 9% alcohol.
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.
Session IPL, 0.4 l
SIPL (short for Session India Pale Lager) packs all of the hop flavor and aroma that you expect from an IPA into a beer with only 4.6% ABV. It has a wonderfully delicate aroma of citrus and pineapple. The light body of this beer is still able to carry its pronounced hop spiciness and bitterness. Simply put, SIPL is a showcase of American Hops on a low alcohol, thirst quenching canvas.
Illinois Kolsch, 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. For the first time, this year’s rendition of Illinois Kölsch uses a variety of Riggs grown, six row winter barley called Thoroughbred. We’re really happy with our first crop of Thoroughbred Barley because it provides this low ABV beer with just the right amount of body and grain flavor. It’s like drinking a light beer that actually tastes like beer!
Mosaic IPL, 0.4 l
This is a house beer that we brew exclusively for Flight Deck in Rochelle. The recipe is very similar to our standard IPL, but we tweaked the hop additions just a bit. A heavy dose of Mosaic Cryo in the dry hop gives this beer its delightfully complex aroma. The nose has notes of blueberry, pine, and citrus.
