The Wilds Are Coming.


The wilds have indeed arrived, and at 11am on Saturday, December 20th, we will release a limited supply of 375mL Wild 5 & Wild 6 bottles in our taproom. Price will be $12/bottle, and allocation quantities are still TBD.

And since this is our first bottle release, we thought it best if we invite some of our local friends over to share some of their tasty offerings as well. Chef Marshall McCarty and the good folks from Nobel House will be serving up some choice BBQ, and for those eager early arrivals, our neighbors to the east from Fresh Ground will be on hand pouring their super fresh, locally roasted coffee.

Perhaps wilds aren’t your jam – no worries. We’ll also be debuting our new imperial stout, Spectral. Growlers and howlers will be available for sale as well. You didn’t actually think we were only going to make session ales and brett beers, did you? Come on now.

Still not satisfied? The first folks who make a bottle purchase at the event will also receive a hand-numbered copy of our screen-printed release poster, designed by good friend and Penrose creative partner, Ian Law.

Getting excited? A few more things to keep in mind:

  1. Coming from the city? The Union Pacific West Metra line stops about 0.75 miles from our front door, but remember this train departs from Ogilvie Transportation Center, not Union Station.
  2. We have plenty of parking, but strongly encourage car-pooling. Partying with friends is cooler anyways, so do it.
  3. We are a cash free establishment – bring those credit and/or debit cards!

You probably also noticed bottles of Wild 7 & 8 featured in that fantastic photograph shot by our own Jeff Cagle. Right — those aren’t available just yet. But you won’t need to wait long; a January release date will be announced soon. Other planned releases include bourbon barrel-aged Spectral + iteration in February, and Barrel 21 Single barrel wild ale + Session Brett IPA in March.

Plenty to look forward to, friends – we hope to see you soon.
