Eastside Dark - Bavarian Dark Lager

Honoring the eclectic East Side of the city, this Bavarian dark lager is a blend of three specialty grains, creating a rich, smooth, dark beer that anyone can enjoy.

Pours a rich, dark color with a nice off-white head. Hints of roasted malts find their way into the aroma, and form a pleasant background to the dark, rich flavor. The German lager yeast rounds out this brew with a smooth, complex finish. It's art in brewed form!

BBQ dishes especially go well with this brew, like a slab of BBQ pork ribs. For dessert, try it with a rich chocolate mousse.

Draft is available in Illinois and Wisconsin.
