Neil, Morrison & Jake celebrate winning a Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal for Little Wing Pilsner

Little Wing Wins 2nd Gold Medal

Home of the World’s Best Pilsner

In our 10th year of brewing on Chicago’s South side, we earned our 10th craft beer award. Little Wing Pilsner captured gold medals at the World Beer Cup this Spring & at the Great American Beer Festival this Fall. Cheers to that!

Over the past decade, including the pandemic, we’ve maintained a focus on producing consistently excellent beer and Southern-inspired food. We’re humbled to receive this recognition & hope that it leads you to visit us on South Western Avenue in Beverly.

Hey, Good Looking

Our beer has the same great taste, with a brand new look

Neil and his team spent months working on the new design for our four flagship beers at HTH: Little Wing Pilsner, Spoonful Hazy IPA, Boogie Chillen’ Grapefruit Pale Ale, and Delta Hurricane Imperial Milk Stout. The development process involved an intensive study & fusion of illustration, typography, colors & copywriting. (Who knew Neil could write haiku?!) We’re incredibly proud of the results and invite you to take home a 4-pack of your favorite style next time you visit HTH.

Farm to Table, Southside Style

Neil Byers collaborates with local high school to raise Angus beef for his kitchen

Innovative food sourcing is what happens when a brewpub is run by an outdoorsman, hunter, and nature lover, as well as a chef and brewer. HTH is proud to raise our own Angus steer to provide fresh beef for our customers to enjoy. Our cows grow to market weight on a diet of spent brewers’ grain and fresh grass about a mile away from us, at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences.

Feathers in our cap

Horse Thief Hollow has captured 10 medals and counting in prestigious beer competitions

We brew great beer and have the bling to prove it. Our Little Wing Pilsner is a multi-award winner! It won Gold Medals twice in 2023, in the Great American Beef Festival and the World Beer Cup, known as the Olympics of beer. It also snagged a Bronze Medal in the 2020 Great American Beer Festival. Our Belgian Tripel Wrenly Rose won Gold at the Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer. We also brought home the Gold in the 2018 World Beer Cup and a Silver Medal in the 2017 Great American Beer Festival for our French farmhouse ale Bière de Voleur, or Thief’s Beer. In 2016, we earned Bronze in the Great American Beer Festival for our Prunckle’s Dunkel, a dark German lager with nutty malted sweetness. We also snagged first place in the 2016 Festival of Barrel Aged Beers for a Bavarian wheat beer called Hilltop Weizenbock. The 2014 World Beer Cup awarded us a Silver Medal for our Cheval Deux, a fall seasonal French brown ale infused with sweet potato. And we earned a Bronze for our signature 18th Rebellion Kolsch Ale, a Zwickelbier, at the 2014 GABF.
