The Bohemian National Cemetery is a HUGE staple in Chicagoland history. We love working with our friends over at the Empty Bottle on this extreme event at the cemetery. The intensity is in the air as the bands play to the stars and the beers are swilled. Get your hands on inexpensive cans of Half Acre's finest: Daisy Cutter West Coast Pale, Tuna Extra Pale, Pony Pilsner, and Vallejo IPA!
Plane Wave IPA was pulled from the roots of Juice Man and Wicca. An English yeast strain backs Vienna malt and flaked oats, while Citra, Amarillo and Galaxy commune for a full bodied, lifestyle nectar.

Tuna Extra Pale Ale on draft!
Our second release from The Cove, Pennon Blonde Wyld Ale, comes this Friday.
First fermented in stainless steel in February of 2016, Pennon was passed to neutral red wine barrels that were separately inoculated with different wild yeast and bacteria. Barrels were chosen a year later and then blended and packaged to undergo a final fermentation in the bottle.
Pennon is blonde in color with a flavor profile composed of full-bodied lactic acidity, notes of lemon, white grape, and an over all floral experience.
- release: 6/9/17, 11am at our shop on Lincoln
- $18.99 / 750ml bottle - limit 6 per person

BREMER & THE NO GOODS
Matt Bremer, Vinny Keel, Jake Bone, Kurt Klein, and James Capone: Five Chicago gents who got together to produce straight up Rock 'N' Roll without any bullshit, but with plenty of booze. The music speaks for itself and is assured to leave pants down, hearts a pound and minds loud!
Three homies that came together out of a love for dogs and rock n' roll, DAMN CHAMPION does playfully authentic midwestern post-hardcore that will shine innocence and retribution back into your soul.
Forever friends and now band-mates, Minor Wits (out of Chicago, IL) is a three-piece pop/rock band that started writing tunes together in the fall of 2011. Eric, Nolan and Brad spent their first year as a group playing around Chicago and the mid-west, but recently spent time at Uptown Recording Chicago to lay-down what has become their debut, "Bedroom Blues."
Panthatone is Khutso Paynter and Steve Denning. A rock and roll two piece.
