Jeppson’s Malört

Jeppson’s Malört...$18.99
Compare to $19.49 at Total Wine and More

Jeppson’s Malört is Chicago’s local beskbrännvin — a style of bitter, wormwood-based, Swedish schnapps. First developed during medieval times for its supposed medicinal benefits, it’s traditionally associated with the farms of Skåne, in Sweden, where wormwood grows wild. In the early 1900s, it was the most ubiquitous drink in Sweden and accompanied the nearly 1 million Swedes who immigrated to the U.S. during that period. One of those immigrants was a man from Ystad, Skåne named Carl Jeppson.

During Prohibition, Mr. Jeppson was into the business of producing legal “medicinal alcohol,” and sold his brand of besk bar-to-bar. After repeal, Malört was a staple of every Swedish bar on Clark St and by that time he had sold his recipe to Bielzoff Products Co., a Chicago distillery. George Brode, Bielzoff owner, helped push Jeppson’s Malört beyond its Swedish origins by introducing it to Chicago’s Polish population, who in turn introduced it to the rest of Chicago.

Through the decades, Jeppson’s Malört has been thought of as a rite of passage and even a purported hangover cure. But we think it is more than that — Jeppson’s Malört is a drink that has helped define the Chicago bar experience. So, join us for a shot, or a cocktail! As George Brode used to say- “You may not like the first, but after the second shot, you’ll be ours forever!” Skål!

Great Divide Yeti Horchata Stout


Great Divide Yeti Horchata Stout...$9.99 / 19.2oz CAN
With origins dating back to the 13th century, horchata-like beverages have a cross-cultural appeal similar to our mythical Yeti. New World versions of the creamy beverage utilize a white rice base, as does our Horchata Yeti Imperial Stout. Rice was added to the traditional Yeti malt bill along with lactose sugar to impart luxurious creaminess and delicious sweetness. Cinnamon and vanilla enhance the pastry-esque qualities of this divine imperial stout, showing that Yeti continues to reinvent himself.

Gruvi Non-Alcoholic Beers


Gruvi Non-Alcoholic IPA...$12.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
"Finally, an IPA I can enjoy without regret."
Gone are the days of heavy IPA's that leave you feeling "blah." Gluten-reduced and just 60 calories, this non-alcoholic IPA brings new meaning to the term "sessionable."
Lighter, yet hop-forward and flavorful, our alcohol-free IPA was made for mid-hike pick-me-ups and chairlift cheers-ing.
We pack each brew with a combination of hops, including American Mosaic, which capture the best flavors of an IPA. Each sip is perfectly balanced with hoppy, citrusy and slightly bitter notes.
Gruvi Non-Alcoholic Juicy IPA...$12.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
Taste the tropics with the second batch of our Juicy IPA
Take it from the experts (our amazing customers) this bev is a winner. Using your feedback, we kept the hazy color and mouthfeel that give this IPA such an authentic flavor.
We also kept the froth but seriously ramped up the taste of the tropics in Batch #2. Our second release of the Juicy IPA is packed with pineapple, which is nicely balanced with notes of citrus and a hint of fig.
But like all good things, this vacay will be coming to an end. As part of our Discovery Series, this is a LIMITED SMALL BATCH — and the Juicy IPA is likely to sell out quickly.
Gruvi Non-Alcoholic Mocha Nitro Stout...$12.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
The first beer in our Discovery Series, the Mocha Nitro Stout is a great example of what it means to be Grüvi.
This creamy non-alcoholic brew is a smooth yet full-bodied ale with notes of coffee and chocolate. The addition of nitrogen makes tiny bubbles and helps us create an ultra-creamy beer that pours like a dream.
The result? A sessional stout that’ll have you feeling the hangover-free buzz, no alcohol (or caffeine) required!
Our Discovery Series is a collaborative collection of bevs that are made for you and by you. By creating an open feedback loop with our community, we are able to blaze new trails together and develop even better brews.
After a LOT of experimentation, we developed the very first alcohol-free Nitro beer on the market. We are super excited for you to get sippin' and can't wait to hear your input.
Gruvi Non-Alcoholic Pale Ale...$12.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
Known for its balanced bitterness, our non-alcoholic Pale Ale is a true take on the classic English brew.
We use Chinook, Cascade and Citra hops to create slight citrus and piney qualities that, when properly fermented, result in the most authentic taste, body and mouthfeel — no alcohol needed!
This earthy and aromatic beer pours a light caramel color with a foamy head. Our alcohol-free Pale Ale is also partially fermented, vegan, and contains 0g of sugar.

Stone Brewing 26th Anniversary IPA


Stone Brewing 26th Anniversary IPA...$16.99 / 6pk cans
Triple Dry Hopped
25 years ago we celebrated the 1st Anniversary of our fledgling brewery with a beer that was far away from the craft beer norms at the time. It was far too intense. It was far too hoppy and bitter. Yet it became the shot heard ‘round the world, and beer history was changed forever. We’re talking of course about our flagship Stone IPA. So, to celebrate the beer that (eventually) launched generations of hop fanatics, we present this imperial version of the beer that made our name among the (budding) craft beer legions. Loaded with gloriously bitter notes of piney, citrusy, resinous dankness, it’s everything we love about our classic West Coast style IPA…properly turned up to 11 25 for the occasion.

Stellum Bourbon Cask Strength

Bourbon is here now!!
Stellum Bourbon Cask Strength...$49.99
114.98 proof

Stellum Bourbon finds its flavor in the tension of three Indiana Bourbon mash bills, two of which are high-rye, with the third being almost exclusively corn. Older barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee are folded in slowly, through a multi-step blending process. This brings added layers of depth and complexity, ultimately allowing us to round out a uniquely Stellum flavor profile.
