Tighthead Brewing from Illinois

New from Illinois 

Tighthead Chilly Water American Pale Ale...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
ABV 4.8% | IBU 40 |
Wheat based Pale Ale that is fermented very clean with American ale yeast giving it a crisp, refreshing finish. Citra and Amarillo hops provide an aroma and flavor of mango, tangerine, and other soft citrus fruit. Warning, this beer may cause a widespread panic… hint at the name’s origin!

Tighthead Irie IPA...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
ABV 7.8% | IBU 100+ |
Irie (pronounced, "EYE-ree") is a malty and complex IPA. Named for the Jamaican word “Irie” meaning “good, excellent, great or of good quality,” this beer is all of those and more. With an original gravity of about 1.070, the malt profile provides a sturdy backbone for the generous amount of Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops. American Ale yeast ferments this beer cleanly allowing the dank hop qualities to come through in all their glory… IRIE Mon!

Tighthead Scarlet > Fire Red Ale...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
ABV 5.6% | IBU 30 |
2018 GABF Gold - Irish-Style Red Ale
Scarlet > Fire is an Irish-style Red Ale. The Name is a reference to the playful, improvisational transition between Grateful Dead's Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain. Scarlet > Fire has a nice balance of malt sweetness from caramel malt and subtle toasty notes from roasted barley. The beer is brewed with American Ale yeast, and the hops are East Kent Golding’s, paying tribute to its heritage as an Irish Red Ale.

Tighthead Go Go Wit ...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
ABV 5% | IBU 18 
A Belgian Witbier brewed with pilsner malt, oats, bitter and sweet orange peel, coriander and chamomile flowers. This refreshing “white” beer starts out sweet and citrusy and finishes dry and crisp with a hint of tartness.
