WIRE ROAD BREWING COMPANY
Osage Trace Raspberry Hefeweizen
A traditional hefeweizen with notes of clove and banana fruited with raspberry puree giving it a light pink hue and a distinctive fruity flavor . 5.3% ABV
WAGES BREWING COMPANY
Loads of pecan and sweet but not cloying. You don’t need to know how to pronounce it for it to take you back to grandma’s fresh pecan pie. 5.3% ABV
Zombie Scottish Ale
This big malt bomb uses pure Golden Promise Scottish malt for its delectable maltiness. We had a handful of other malts to do some midwesternizing of this otherwise traditional style. This zombie is out to get you! 6.1% ABV
TORN LABEL BREWING COMPANY
An NE IPA, this hazy ode to hops features Riwaka, Mosaic and El Dorado, for lively aromas of pineapple and kumquat, with flavor notes of guava, orange soda and pear.

O’Fallon’s Pumpkin Pack varietal includes three of each of the following beers:
Original Pumpkin Ale
We use soooo much real pumpkin in our mash that it adds hours to the lauter—but the result is incredible. We season our beer with fresh cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to give this wonderful seasonal beer its uncanny “Pumpkin Pie in a Bottle” taste. ABV 5.6%
NEW Pumpkin Cheesecake
We started with a Cream Ale base beer to create this dessert favorite. Sweet and tangy notes of cream cheese combined with hints of graham cracker crust finished with the traditional pumpkin pie spice of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Have your cake and drink it too! 5.3% ABV
NEW Pumpkin Chai Tea
A creamy brown porter using lactose sugar to add a creamy latte character to the chocolate malt flavor notes help build the base of this beer. Brewed with real pumpkin and traditional spices of chai: cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and clove. This rich and aromatic creation is the perfect fall sipper. 5.0% ABV
NEW Pumpkin Oktoberfest
Two fall favorite beers combined. We designed a traditional German style, Octoberfest lager and added toasted pumpkin seeds to the mash to accentuate the rich nutty malt character of the stye— no other pumpkin. 5.8% ABV
CINDER BLOCK BREWERY
We release a new version of this beer every year on Black Friday. A robust Russian Imperial Stout aged 10 months in whiskey barrels, creates complex flavors of creamy vanilla, toasted coconut, oak, and dark chocolate. This beer is as mysterious as the black squirrel that appears outside our brewery when we brew this beer. Relax, sit, and sip on this finely aged beer. 12% ABV
All the hops in this beer find their way in at the very end of the brewing process, preserving all the delicate, tropical and juicy flavors. Not bitter and not high in alcohol, we’ve created the perfect beer to cuddle up to. 6.2% ABV
A new brew concept for Cinder Block Brewery: An evolving series of hop-for- ward pilsners. We incorporate the clean crispness of a Pilsner with the hop profile of an IPA. 5% ABV
This J. Reiger Whiskey barrel-aged quad is packed with premium malts, loads of hops, and Belgian Candi sugar and aged for six months. This massive 12% quad will warm you up with Belgian esters, dark fruit, and raisin notes - it’s sure to please even the most fickle palette. This beer will be bottled and released during our 9th anniversary week celebrations, the last week of September. 12% ABV
Vietnamese Coffee Stout
Vietnamese-inspired Coffee Stout. Loads of dark malts, lactose, and Vietnamese coffee beans went into this brew. A velvety, sweet mouthfeel rounds out with the robust coffee in conditioning. Perfect for the fall season. 6% ABV
MARTIN BROTHERS WINERY
Dry Wildflower Mead
A re-release for us with a different oaking strategy and honey supply. Cold fermented in stainless steel, then 65% American Oak & 35% French Oak staves near the end of fermentation & oak aged to taste, typically 2-3 months for very light aging. We did an even 50/50 blend of honey from two of our sources.
