ON TAP!

Founders

RUBAEUS

Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries, Rubaeus is Founders' way of celebrating the joys of summer year-round. This stunning berry-red masterpiece is the perfect blend of sweet, tart and refreshing. No question about it, this beer is 100% Founders.

FRUITS OF LABOR
Rubaeus defies subtlety and proves to be the perfect accompaniment to those long days, no matter the season, with a friend by your side and adventure out in front of you. Enjoy summer year-round with Rubaeus.

Great Lakes Christmas Ale

Christmas Ale's fresh honey, cinnamon, and ginger flavors.

FLAVOR A Yuletide's worth of holiday spices and sweet honey to keep you a-wassailing all season long.

It's Christmas Ale! You cannot rate. it 's like no another beer - it's designed for a purpose...to ring in the Holidays! The 2017 brew tastes a little more cinnamony than last year's, but maybe that's just me. I love this brew on tap...nothing rings in the Holiday's like GL Christmas Ale!

 

Great Lakes Turntable Pils

A: Clear golden color. Mild carbonation lazily floats to the surface. Two fingers bleached head. Nice retention.
S: Husked cereal grain. Mildly spicy hop aroma.
T: Tight husked grain. Slightly soapy. Spicy herbal essence. Lemon oil. Bitterness picks up in the end with a slightly astringent, chalky essence.
M: Light. Slightly rounded. Carbonation lightly scrubs the palate.
O: Good classic take on Czech pils

Leinenkugel 
Harvest Patch Shandy


Crisp weiss beer with natural pumpkin spice flavor
Satisfy your thirst for autumn with our Leinenkugel’s® Harvest Patch® Shandy. It’s our traditional weiss beer with natural pumpkin spice flavor to give you notes of nutmeg, allspice and clove for a refreshing fall seasonal. It’s crisp and smooth, just like a perfect fall day on the Leinie Side
.

 

Market Garden Festivus Ale

Smooth, spicy (allspice, ginger & cinnamon), malty with an elegant finish thanks to caramelized wort and a bit of brown sugar, this beer is sure to make the holidays better. According to the Seinfeld model, Festivus is celebrated each year on December 23rd. Those attending Festivus may also participate in the “Airing of Grievances,” which is an opportunity to tell others how they have disappointed you in the past year, followed by a Festivus dinner, and then completed by the “Feats of Strength” where the head of the household must be pinned.

 

Dundee's Honey Brown Amber Lager


Man first brewed with honey more than 2,000 years ago. Back then, fermented honey was proclaimed the drink of kings. We first brewed Original Honey Brown Lager nearly 20 years ago. And we like to think every batch is still fit for a king. In the years since, Honey Brown has been brewed with the same premium barley, hops and pure Manitoba White Clover Honey to produce a great-tasting, medium-bodied lager.
This isn’t your watered-down light beer from college. Nor is it a heavy craft beer. Honey Brown pours right smack dab in the middle. A delicious golden amber color, it’s a beer you can drink throughout the night while staying true to yourself and your evolving palate. Enjoy it with friends. Enjoy it with strangers. It doesn’t matter to us—just enjoy it.

Columbus INDIA PALE ALE

Pale orange, with grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit aromas
India Pale Ales were originally brewed to withstand long ocean voyages by increasing the quantity of hops and malt used in their Pale Ale predecessors. Our take on IPA pours pale orange with a balanced malt presence and finishes with a combination of grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit notes from Pacific Northwest grown hops.

Stella Artois Cidre

Crisp and refreshing belgian cider made with hand-picked apples

 

Market Garden Prosperity Wheat

Formerly known as Street Wheat! If you’ve ever spent time in a German Beer Garden, you know how much they love their wheat beer. Our Bavarian style Hefeweizen is a satisfying blend of sweet wheat and pale malts, clove and banana aromatics, and the zesty tang of wheat beer yeast.

Working Class Brewery Brick Layer Brown Ale

An ale like this will make
you lay bricks all the live long day

 

Platform Amarillo Fog DBL IPA


This is an outstanding beer that has just a bit of "east coast" yeasty kick, but is not nearly as juicy or biting as many. More like an Unfiltered Enjoy By than a Heady Topper.
It is a very hazy, vibrant burnt orange-gold. It has an egg shell white, massive pillowy head.
It smells fairly malty and musty with an almost pilsner like grain aroma. There is also some fruity esters, pine, and some noticeable yeast.
The flavors really pop compared to the aroma. It has a lot of musty/earhty grapefruit, pineapple, and a touch of peach. Not really sweet at all. There is a bit of a floral hop flavor, followed by a solid bitter pine. It finishes with a little bit of a yeast bite.
The body is definitely on the heavier side, but smooth with no real noticeable alcohol

Royal Docks Pendragon RareWit

According to legend, King Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, was possessed of two magical ales. Pendragon RareWit is our homage to the first of those beers - magically ‘wrought in Avalon' to refresh knights after battle and imbue them with the ‘courage of the Red Dragon'. Rather than hops, Pendragon RareWit relies on a pantheon of herbs and spices - many native to the Welsh Countryside - to provide a refreshing citrusy floral balance to the sweetness of barley malt and unmalted wheat.

Uinta

Hop Nosh IPA

   Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It's balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

North High Brewing Honey Wheat Lager

Light body, orange hues and a smooth finish develop from brewing with a special honey malt and orange blossom honey.

Slightly hazy gold with
Sweet malt aroma, with clove and citrus. Smells remarkably like Blue Moon, but stronger.
Sweet, malty and honeyed arrival, followed by a citrusy tang and mild banana clove esters.
Heavier side of mid weight; little carbonation, slick and smooth. Appropriate for the style
Tastes pretty much like a sweeter, bolder, less carbonated Blue Moon. Surprised this is a lager; would almost think its a Hefeweizen!.

 

Young's Double Chocolate Stout

The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk

chocolate, roasted

grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla

 

Guinness

A classic. Mainly

roasted malt, with a

touch of cream and

milk to it

 

**********************

The paradox of our

time in history is that

we have taller

buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, but

enjoy less.

We have bigger

houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less

sense, more

knowledge, but

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more

medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,

spend too recklessly, laugh too little,drive

too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.

We

have multiplied our possessions, but

reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate

too often. We've

learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years

to life not life to years.

We've been all the

way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.

We've done larger

things, but not better things. We've cleaned

up the air, but polluted

the soul. We've conquered the atom,

but not our prejudice.

We write more, but

learn less. We plan

more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more

computers to hold

more information, to produce more copies

than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These

are the days of two incomes but more

divorce, fancier

houses, but broken homes.

These are days of

quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway orality, one night

stands, overweight bodies, and pills that

do everything from

cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there

is much in the

showroom window and nothing in the

stockroom. A time

when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you

can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit 'delete'.

Remember, spend

some time with your

loved ones, because

they are not going to

be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone, who looks up to you in awe, because that little

person soon will grow

up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one

next to you, because

that is the only

treasure you can give

with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say,

"I love you" to your

partner and your loved ones, but most of all

mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from

deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday

that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the

precious thoughts in

your mind.

Italian multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter

JACK MARTINI BAND

Fresh off of his performance at Governors Ball, frontman, composer and songwriter Jack Martini cooks up his pop songs with hints of hip-hop, humour, 60’s rock and composes with flavors from all over the world.
Growing up in New York City around family friend, studio musician and singer Mark Pender, Jack was brought up in a mix of showmanship, professionalism and musical talent.
At the age of thirteen, Martini started writing comical lyrics with his father, who had moved to Paris, France. A satiric aura that still remains in the spirit of Jack Martini’s songs.
Moving to Rome, Jack had the honor to work with producer Marco Patrignani at the famous Forum Music Village. As he assisted notorious film composers his passion for writing for media sparked.
In 2014, he received multiple scholarships to study at Berklee College of Music where he focused on composition and arranging, in particular writing for film, TV and adds. Under the guidance of award winning composers Bill Elliott, Eric Reasoner and Renato Milone, he juggled between pop music, with collaborations with Brian Wheat (TESLA) and composition for media.
With features on The Boston Globe, PopCrush and Culture Collide, Martini works as a producer and composer on an array of projects and continues to build his following in New York and Boston, with performances of his EPs D.R.Y. and Marmalade Love at Governor’s Ball, Sofar Sounds, Arlene's Grocery and Rockwood Music Hall's main stage.

Live On Our Stage

Chicago raw, rockin' blues~superb guitarist from Jr. Wells band out of Miami

Albert Castiglia

Starting at 7pm

In a previous career, Albert Castiglia was a bona fide Hoodoo Man. A Miamian since the age of 5, Castiglia got his comeuppance at a '97 audition for Junior Wells' lead guitar slot, staying on with the band after Wells' death the following year, going solo in 2002 with his debut, Burn. In his live performances, Castiglia introduces Wells' “Somebody Done Hoodooed the Hoodoo Man” by admitting that he was working in a welfare office in Florida when Wells called him, telling the young guitarist “meet me in Chicago in three days. Now I'm here.” For his seventh album, Up All Night, Castiglia enlisted the help of slide guitarist Sonny Landreth and harpist Johnny Sansone with producer Mike Zito helping out on guitar and vocals as well. Castiglia wrote it, but that's Sonny Landreth's unmistakable slide up front on “95 South,” a wiggly ode to road dawgin' with Landreth pinning the pedal to the floor outrunning a howlin' hurricane on a breakneck haul from D.C. to Castiglia's South Florida home. “Made it back in 17 hours/back in the land of sun and flowers/in a couple of days I'll be ready for another run,” Castiglia promises.
Live, Castiglia acknowledges his royal influences, the four Kings: “Freddie, B.B, Albert, and Burger.” He taps Freddie for the slow burn on the Mike Zito composition “Quit Your Bitchin'," a workin' man's lament about being piled on by both wife and mother-in-law: “Your mother's just as bad,” Castiglia complains after wifey has already raked him over the coals, and then mom-in-law takes over: “She never liked me at all/ the old bat's got a screw loose/ talkin' bout me like a dawg.” Castiglia has an aggressive guitar attack on most of his stuff, but he really leans on it with his arrangement of Luther “Snake Boy” Johnson's “Woman Don't Lie.” While Johnson's original was rough and gritty, a sludgy clang crawling along a dirt-floored juke joint, Castiglia's jumps up and bites you in the ass with a sting like an enraged scorpion, the guitarist sounding like somebody plugged him into a 220 socket and doused him with a bucket of water.
The Castiglia original “Chase Her Around The House” sounds like a Fabulous T-Birds tune, a hard rockin', rough and tumble ode to getting down. “I'm a big ole cat, she's a little bitty mouse,” Castiglia says, channeling Kim Wilson on vocals: “I'm gonna chase her around the house/ when I catch her we'll be lovin' 'till we're sweaty and we're black and blue.” ~ “You Got Me To That Place” is the only acoustic cut, but just because it's unplugged doesn't mean Castiglia backs off the intensity. Backed with Zito's harmonizing vocal, it's a big foot stomper that sounds like it fell off a Delta back porch, Castiglia fingerpickin' it clean and pretty while still managing to sound low down and sinister.
Castiglia is a superb guitarist and witty composer who deserves a higher profile. This all-nighter ought to help, but fans of raw, rockin' blues guitar versatility ought to be seriously studyin' on him to complete their bluesology degrees.

The Session Live

Christian James Hand

Music, laughter, and an in-depth look at Queen/David Bowie and Led Zeplin

Christian James Hand is a British musician, music producer, radio personality, and voice-over artist. Born in Tittensor, Stoke-On-Trent, England on January 27th, 1969, his family then moved to Botswana, Africa. In 1976 the family returned to the UK and lived in London until re-locating to Port Jefferson, Long Island.
Hand attended The State University of New York at Purchase (Purchase State College). While there he was instrumental in revamping its college radio station, WPUR (now WPSR). Upon graduation from Purchase State University, Hand was offered a job touring with P.M. Dawn part as of the World of Music, Arts and Dance (WOMAD) Festival with Peter Gabriel. His official title was drum technician, although he was originally hired as a lighting tech, and he also acted as ad-hoc Stage Manager.
After returning from the tour, and unwilling to spend his life out on the road, Christian started work with British hip‐hop Label, Gee Street Records, as an A&R (artists & repertoire) assistant. In 1993, he went on to become the Stage Manager for The Gravediggaz while they toured together with Public Enemy, Gangstarr, Ice Cube. Korn, and Biohazard, amongst others. At the insistence of producer Prince Paul he was given the moniker “MC Skullcap” and performed with The Gravediggaz in place of RZA on part of their European tour.
Disillusioned with life in the Major Labels Christian left Gee Street and took on the job of managing the local live venue in Port Chester, 7 Willow Street. While there he was responsible for helping book such acts as Soul Coughing, Face To Face, The Bogmen, The Goo Goo Dolls, and many others before they went on to national acclaim. It was also during his tenure at the club that he met the Street Team from the local Alternative radio station, X-107. He soon quit 7 Willow Street and joined on at X-107 in the role of Promotions Assistant.
In the winter of 1995 there was a re-shuffle of the air-staff at the station and he through his name into the hat to become the overnight DJ. He was hired within hours of delivering his demo and went on-the-air in the overnight slot using the name “Chase.” He was then promoted to afternoon drive after a few months and also began working with Mike Savage on the groundbreaking electronica show, “X107 Hardhouse.” When the WRGX changed format to country, he transferred across the nation to sister station Y107 (KLYY) in Los Angeles. Unfortunately the name “Chase” also came with him to LA.
When Y-107 flipped format Hand joined Sirius/XM’s “Faction” channel as the Night Time DJ, initially using the name “Debbie Hernandez”, as well as afternoons on “Alt Nation.” He would also contribute to the Jason Ellis Show on occasion. It was during this time that Hand and Ellis came up with the hugely popular ”Naked Vocals” segment, where only the vocal parts to a classic rock song are isolated and played over the air.
After leaving Sirius/XM Hand took the segment and expanded upon it as guest on the Mark In The Morning Show on KSWD 100.3 The Sound. He introduced the host and co‐hosts to Marvin Gaye’s “Heard It Through the Grapevine”, breaking it down to all of its individual tracks, not just the vocals. It soon became a fixture of the show and Hand would continue to be a guest on the morning show doing these music dissections. He then joined with Andy Chanley to become the co-host of the, short-lived, Andy In The Afternoon Show. During this time he started to do live music breakdowns called “The Sound Sessions at Swing House” once a month. These continue to occur and routinely sell-out with an audience of 200 in attendance.
It was with Hand’s dissection of Toto’s Rosanna that he received national attention from Guitar World magazine’s website. He was given his own one hour show on 100.3 The Sound titled “If You Like That” that appeared Sunday nights at 9:00pm. The concept was to introduce listeners to new music by coupling it with a similar sounding classic rock song from an established artist. An idea that hadn’t been heard before. Many listeners considered it the best hour of radio on the station.
Today, Christian can be heard on Monday mornings at the legendary 95.5 KLOS, where his 20 minute segment, The Session, teams him up with Frosty, Heidi and Frank.

THE DIARY OF PATRICK XAVIER
New Album, Solo Bass & Story Telling Tour 2018

STU HAMM

Rock, Jazz, Fusion

The most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics

Through his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, STU HAMM has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics. Although Hamm certainly wasn't the first bass player to debut during the 1980s and employ an unorthodox approach to playing the electric bass, he was undoubtedly at the forefront of his generation who effectively fused the application of these unconventional techniques. STU HAMM is a world class, utterly entertaining story-teller, legendary bass guitar icon, known also for playing and recording with some of the greatest guitarists of the recent decades: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, Alex Skolnick, Richie Kotzen, Mike Keneally, Allan Holdsworth, Frank Gambale, Michael Schenker, Richie Kotzen. and many others. Stu has been a monumental influence in jazz/rock style for many bass players worldwide. STU HAMM i s endorsed by Warwick basses, MarkBass amps and GHS strings.
