Join us for the release of Chicago’s Half-Acre Brewery newest beer, Chocolate Camaro. Chocolate Camaro is coco rich and lactose silk surrounds roasty notes to offer this stout a firm stance. 6% ABV.

Prairie Moon will also feature additional Half Acre beers with options to pair with Chef Matt O’Neill’s dishes created just for these particular Half Acre beers.

Pony Pils – 5.8% ABV
Pony Pilsner is a firm take on the classic German style aimed to quench the masses. German hops and malts are braided together to release the crisp awakening your summer self needs. A very good way to start your tasting experience!
Meatball Slider 
Beef meatball / braised cabbage / mustard remoulade
Taco Day- Pale Ale- 6.5% ABV
If you had it last time we brewed it, you’ll remember some tastefully foreign hop qualities. You’ll again be knocked off balance when hit with the charm of 07270. This experimental varietal of hops is being described in many ways at our brewery. A lot of juicy derivatives, an array of bong driven superlatives and a series of tree and fruit benchmarks. What’s important is that people are digging through their sensory rolodex to find ways to explain new qualities. Hop growers are being pushed by the rabid interest in expanding the profile hops can create. Science and farming collide to twist on you in new ways. Taco Day takes note of the culinary institution that is tacos. You love tacos.
Calamari Tacos
Fried calamari / jalapeño tartar / arugula / pico de gallo
Chocolate Camaro- Milk & Cacao Stout – 6% ABV
Coco richness and lactose silk surround roasty notes to offer this stout a firm stance. Also launching for this event for the first year ever, will be Chocolate Camaro on Nitro!!! So come out and check out what a different type of gas does to the texture of the beer and how it changes your perception of the taste! Have it on Co2 and Nitro and then decide which way is best!
Pork Wings
Mini pork shanks / peanut cocoa bbq sauce / creamed corn
