Deals for Heroes

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we’re expanding our usual hump-day deal to include a group of heroes who deserve to be honored no matter the day.

All day Wednesday, veterans and service members get 30% off everything.

This is in addition to our usual Wednesday deal of 30% off for teachers and school staffers, which is still firmly in place as well.

Thank you heroes!

Flight Night

Friday is Flight Night at the Lakeview Taproom, when we offer 20% off ALL beer flights, ALL day and night

With 14 hyper-local Chicago beers on tap at all times, there’s quite simply no better way to say FriYAY.

Barrel Aged Singularity

Empirical aged their Singularity Oatmeal Stout for 14 months in a blended red wine barrel.

There are only 2 pony kegs of this awesome brew available for the market, and it’s never to be replicated! Don’t miss your chance.
