Every year we brew a brown ale to celebrate the holidays. To make each year's special, we alter the recipe. This year we wrapped caramel and dark fruit malt flavors inside a creamy, toasty brown ale. May your holidays be filled with Festivity.

We don't need to be the only beer you drink. We just want to be the best beer you drink. It was 1988, America predominantly drank lagers. There were plenty of beer choices. Just not many style options. John Hall was a frequent traveler to England. And a frequent visitor to pubs throughout the English countryside. He returned home to Chicago with a taste for the pronounced hops and malty backbones of pub ales, only to find lagers and more lagers. So he did what any irrational person would do. He quit his job and built a brewery. He built a brewery when craft breweries were scarce in America, and nonexistent in Chicago. He built a brewery that would awaken America's palate by brewing a wide variety of distinctive ales.
