Schlafly Dry Hopped Pale Ale in Chicago

Schlafly Dry Dopped APA

Posted by | Now On Tap | No Comments

Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

In the long view of the history of beer, American Pale Ale is a newcomer. Based on English Pale Ale, American brewers adapted this style into something new. Born out of the reverence English Pale Ales during the 1980’s American beer scene, APA is the bold, hoppier cousin of Pale Ale. With an emphasis on American hops, APA is gaining popularity with breweries racing to make these ales with such great hop characters.

Baderbräu Chicago Pilsner

Posted by | Now On Tap | No Comments

Totally sessionable, this bright, hop-forward Pilsener was first introduced in 1989 right here in Chicago. In a time when “craft beer” did not yet exist in Chicago and pure, flavorful beer was virtually unknown in the US aside from imports —and people thought “Reinheitsghebot” was something you said when someone sneezed— this beer caused quite a stir.

Today, we’ve painstakingly recreated Douglas Babcook’s original, ground-breaking recipe, right down to the exact hops and exclusive yeast strain. Its amber color, spicy hop-forward aroma, malty body, and creamy finish truly set this beer apart from all others.

The late beer critic Michael Jackson called this recipe, “The best pilsener I’ve ever tasted in America.”

We humbly agree.

Please share with your friends, and introduce them to the Baderbräu tradition.

ABV: 4.8% | IBU: 38 | SRM: 9 | Decoction: none

Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance.
