Our New Beer Labels Are Here!

Same great taste, 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

We brew great beer and have the bling to prove it. In 2020, our Little Wing Pilsner snagged a Bronze Medal in the Great American Beer Festival. And 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.
