Yes, I’m jumping on the Baby Yoda train. Plus, he’s 50 years old, so he’s allowed to drink. They say it’s soup, but do we truly know what’s in that cup? (I’m estimated a cease-and-desist notice in about a week …) Back to...
SKB originally tapped their PawPaw Wheat Ale on Black Wednesday. And, now, they’ve tapped another keg of PawPaw Wheat Ale on “The Wednesday After.” So, PawPaw is not just a catchy name. It’s actually a fruit grown in the Midwest. Imagine...
So, you’ve probably seen the initials BBA on some beer descriptions. That’s Bourbon Barrel Aged. So, is BWBA a thing? Well, River Hawk is making it one (although I’m trying the acronym a thing). Today, River Hawk Brewing released a BWBA River...

Dress for the weather, but be sure your outer layer is festive.
Light up your bike so they can see it from space.
This video is from a similar ride with our brothers and sisters in Glen Ellyn a few years ago, to give you a flavor for the festivities.
The ride is open to anyone, but you must be able to ride your bike 25 miles and stay with the group.
Sign up at the tap room or call us.
