Beers

At Church Street, we divide our products into six categories: Stylistically, we offer beers that fall into most, if not all, major brewing traditions.

Core Beer

Produced continuously throughout the year, these proven beers have stacks of awards and large followings.

Brewcifer Hazy Double IPA

brewcifer ipa 16 oz can label beer

A hazy IPA with an absolutely sinister amalgamation of hops, featuring citra, mosaic, galaxy and falconer’s flight. With almost entirely whirlpool and dry hop additions, Brewcifer pushes the limits of what is possible in a Hazy IPA.

Conor McRedder Vanilla Red Ale

conor mcredder 16 oz can label beer

A classic European style brew that uses 100% UK hops, Maris Otter, Crystal and Vienna Malts. Notes of caramel, toffee and buttered toast provide for a smooth and complex flavor profile – topped with a creamy head.

Devil’s Advocate Belgian Style Ale

devils advocate 16 oz can label beer

What happens when you take a ton (literally) of Pilsen malt, mash it, boil it up, add 500lbs of Belgian candi and cane sugars, and then unleash a ferocious Belgian yeast upon it? The answer: A funky, spicy, and dangerously drinkable brew!

Different Not Broken Cream Ale

different not broken

Brewed in collaboration with our friends at 815 Brewing, this is Church Street’s take on what is rapidly becoming one of, if not the, craft beer style most associated with the Midwest. Smooth, with enough flavor to stand up to bold food pairings, a portion of the proceeds from each sale support Autism programs in the Rockford area.

Heavenly Helles

The reason we’re here!

One of Germany’s quintessential beverages. Utilizing old world decoction-mashing techniques for a truly unique sweet malt character, this gentle drink also features a straw colored-clarity that’s clearly heavenly.

Lil Lucy Session Hazy IPA

A session hazy IPA. We blended Mosaic, Galaxy, and Simcoe hops for a tropical themed IPA, with notes of pine, mango, and an array of berries, balanced with a modest grain bill. Sniff. Sip. Repeat!

Righteous Red Ale

A classic European style brew that uses 100% UK hops, Maris Otter, Crystal and Vienna Malts. Notes of caramel, toffee and buttered toast provide for a smooth and complex flavor profile topped with a creamy head.

Special Release

These beers often experience sharp seasonal spikes in demand, making their annual release an exciting event for the brewery and our customers.

Cerbierus Lactose-Free Hazy IPA (Fall)

cerbierus label beer

This highly experimental Hazy IPA uses advanced hop products and Omega’s Cosmic Punch Ale Strain to dial up hop notes and flavors. A three-headed dry hop of Vic Secret, Kohatu, and Citra creates flavors of fresh pineapple and citrus. Flaked wheat provides a full, smooth body with NO dairy needed. Enjoy!

Church Street Pils (Summer)

church st pils 16 oz can label beer

Our proprietary yeast strain along with the Czech Saaz hops produces a pilsner that is completely unique to this side of the pond. The rich malt character of a Czech Style Pilsner is derived from our European brewing techniques (decoction mash brewing) which comes through at first, followed by the crisp hop bitterness of a German Pilsner. After drinking this beer, Chuck predicts that you’ll want another. Prost!

Hauch von Himmel Hefeweizen (Spring)

himmel hefe 16 oz can label beer

A classic Bavarian style hefeweizen, unfiltered and highly carbonated with notes of banana and clove. Hazy golden in color, utilizing a decoction mash, Andechs Weiss yeast and Noble hops for a delicious, refreshing, and traditional summertime brew.

Itascafest Marzen (Fall)

A truly traditional German Marzen/Oktoberfest featuring a pure amber clarity. A subtle,
toasty aroma with a hint of caramel, and a rich, deep malt character fully fleshed out with
a double decoction mash and Weyerman’s world class German malt. Prost!

Real Beer (Summer)
