The Chopping Block
Hard Cider from Right Bee Cider
This all-natural cider is made by a Chicago couple and uses local honey.
DANK HAUS, German-American Cultural Center
Possmann Frankfurter Äpfelwein Hard Cider
Crisp, dry and clear with the distinct harmony of a tart cider with fruit flavor of the apple.
Great Central Brewing Co. – Festzelt Bier
A limited-release seasonal Oktoberfest lager brewed in Chicago.
Fischborn Dry Riesling from Germany
Floral notes with hints of honey and peach.
Vander Mill Totally Roasted Cider
The medley of cinnamon, pecan, and vanilla will dance on your palate. This is a mind altering example of what cider can be.
Metropolitan Flywheel Pilsner
Features the spicy hop flavors and bitterness you expect in a Pilsner, but the malt bill is amped up for balance.
Solemn Oath End All
Sunshine colored with haze for days, this IPA boasts a juicy, tropical fruit hop aroma with a massive orange-citrus hop flavor.
Hot Mulled Wine
Northman Pub Cider
Not too dry, not too sweet. Right in the middle, with decent acidity. Made from Michigan heirloom apples such as Grimes Golden, Northern Spy, Winter Banana & Winesap.
Uncle John’s, Cherry Cider
Uncle John’s starts with farm-fresh Apple Hard Cider, then use a special family recipe and mix in Michigan Cherry Juice. This carbonated blush brings together Michigan’s best tastes.
Begyle Free Bird
Showcasing Falconers Flight hops, this sessionable brew has aromas of citrus and fresh-cut flowers, leading into a well-balanced blend of lemony hop bitterness and clean malt character.
Hopler Pannonica Rose
This very pale rose has an inviting nose of fresh lemon and ripe strawberries. The citrus-dominated palate is exquisitely fresh, light and dry. This is a pleasant summer breeze of a wine providing excellent refreshment.
Hopler Pannonica Red
Lots of fleshy black and red cherry fruit swishes on nose and palate. It’s juicy fruit that stands in the foreground on a fluid palate which also has lovely, exciting tinges of white pepper spice. The body is fresh and light, the finish is refreshing and moreish.
OutCider from 2 Towns Ciderhouse
Rugged and fresh, OutCider isn’t afraid of taking the trail less traveled. Jonagold apples are pressed, fermented, and left unfiltered, so you can experience their raw character.
Son of Juice IPA by Maplewood
A hazy IPA dripping with fruit juice notes. Pilsner malt and oats make a perfect canvas for loads of mosaic, simcoe, and nugget hops.
Pinot Noir, red wine
Savory Spice Shop
Mulled Apple Cider, Hot & Cold (non-alcoholic)
