  • Really good beer. I go to a new brewery a few times a month but this one is worth repeating! We tried 11 different beers and all of them were top notch.

  • Great new brewery in Des Plaines. It's located in an industrial area (natch). Easy parking and a great vibe once you enter. Outstanding! Highly recommended.

Fibs beers

If it's listed here... it's on tap!
Break Oil
Clean, crisp, refreshing. Everyone needs a break. And this is the perfect beer to "lube up" after a hard day of yard work... or, after a hard day of watching someone else do your yard work. No judgement here. Also goes great with a lime.    (6.2% abv)
Crowlers available to go
The Throw Down
Hazy Juicy IPA
Classic smooth drinking hazy east coast IPA with enough pineapple and grapefruit to make you long for lazy summer days on the beach. Sitting in the shade of course, cause the sun is just too flipping hot these days. Enjoy.    (7% abv)
Crowlers available to go
8 Legged Octopus
Apple Ale
Crisp, clean, and bubbly. Illinois country apples harvested at peak freshness. Squeezed right into the fermenter to turn you into a giggling goose.    (8.8% abv)
Crowlers available to go
A Question of Madness
Imperial Ale
A smooth malt forward ale with a hint of smoldering toastiness. Slightly dry on the palate with a sweet finish. Yeah baby.    (7.9% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Hard Seltzer
All I can say is yummmmmmmy. Creamy, light and delicious. Literally melts in yo’ mouth... like a creamsicle. Typically served with an orange slice.    (5.9% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Dead Goldfish
Pale Ale
A classic Illinois common. Like a cool summer breeze on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Easy drinkin with a pinch of hops.    (6.6% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Fib Cage
The perfect beer to enjoy on a warm summer day just chillin’ with your crew in the fib cage. Cool, refreshing, and dare I say revitalizing? Need an in-betweener? Try this textbook session beer.    (5.4% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Jesus Rosie!
Scotch Ale
This damn Wee Heavy is so good it will make a saint out of a sinner! Earthy malt greatness with a hint of smoky oak. Balanced and smooth!    (7.4% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Ode to Francis Wuppermann
Belgian Tripel
A magnificent Belgian Ale. A caramel toffee flash followed by a floral and peppery finish. This is certainly one you’ll remember, well, at 9% you will love it, but you might not remember. Time to liquidate the witch!    (9% abv)
Crowlers available to go
Double IPA
A double IPA, generously hopped, but with a focus on the nose. Perfectly balanced. This is a close as you’re going to get to drinking a flower infused with earthy sweetness.    (8.1% abv)

Hard Seltzer
Salted Caramel... say no more!    (6.1% abv)
