Year-round. An unreal English-style Amber brewed with refined English malts then bastardized with brazen American hops for celebrating a neighborhood that doesn't exist. Bold and slightly unconventional—a little nutty, even—with a citrusy finish. Silver Medal, 2017 Beverage Testing Institute Tastings, English Ale.
Restless Years®, Pale Ale with Rye (5.8% ABV)
Year-round. Restlessness is movement. It thirsts for change, defies expectations, and forever explores. Crisp and refreshing with sweet hints of pure joy, our pale ale keeps things moving with tropical aromatic hops and a spicy rye finish. Turn your restless nights to restless years.
Escapist®, India Pale Ale (6.7% ABV)
Year-round. Getting into the party is one thing. Getting out when the time is right is another. Our American IPA comes on strong with four types of aromatic hops and the right amount of bittering, then smoothly makes its way to the exit, lingering only in your memories.
Root Down™, Robust Porter (4.2% ABV)
Occasional. We all have a history—roots. It's great to embrace the past, but you can't live there. Smooth and endlessly drinkable, this robust porter, brewed with chicory and licorice roots and tinged with a touch of smoked malt, reinterprets its roots.
Birdsong™, Saison (7.0% ABV)
Occasional. With its peppery sweetness, hint of farmhouse funk, and refreshing acidity, Birdsong celebrates and reminds us of the warmer months full of sunshine and a little spice.
Freedive™, India Black Ale (5.4% ABV)
Occasional. Days shorten and cold permeates everything, but the darkest time of the year also offers its treasures. Take Freedive, our India Black Ale. Freedive's midnight color and roasty malt character belie its piney hop aroma, creating an unexpected combination. Freedive is a beer for winter, and like the snow and solitude, it will be gone before you realize.

Quotidienne™, Belgian-Style Dubbel (7.7% ABV)
Occasional. In Belgium, special occasions call for great beer, but great beer isn't reserved for special occasions. It's every day; it's your daily bread. Rather than analyzing this beer for its enticing malt and yeast character, we hope you taste Belgian modesty and Frances Willard's legacy of making things better. Because everyday moments are worth celebrating.
Today is the Day, Belgian-Style Quad (9.1% ABV)
Occasional. Not every day feels like a celebration, and sometimes we wait too long for stars to align before enjoying something truly special. Today is the Day is the answer: with aromas of burnt sugar and brandy-soaked cherries and deep caramel notes and color, this winter warmer turns the ho-hum to the hell yeah!

But this one is different. This one is about beer. Aside from that tiny detail, the two Temperance movements have always been about making life better in ways big and small. We think that’s a worthy goal, and one that only comes about by being open to new possibilities. It’s something we think about with the beers we brew and the things we do.
