Sheryl Crow is fond of suggesting a change would do you good, especially when talking to Lance Armstrong about his wife & kids, so she'd probably be proud that the beer geek bros at Pipeworks decided to forgo marrying... themselves to a flagship brew in favor of an ambitious plan to release a new, small production selection almost every week for the entire year. You'll find something to like in their inaugural five flavors if...
You get hopped up: Not just a drug-addled fever dream, their Ninja vs. Unicorn is an unfiltered Double IPA "sure to please the most discerning hop lover."
You prefer smoking: The fancy-name-eschewing Smoked Porter has an extra dose of flavor thanks to an aging stint in Koval whiskey barrels.
You smoke enough to constantly crave chocolate: Grab a Jones Dog, a milk stout that's straight heavy on cocoa nibs, and named for the owner's chocolate lab.
You somehow smoked enough to crave chocolate and Mexico: End of Days is another milk chocolate stout, but it oozes machismo, what with its hints of ancho and cinnamon, and blatant disregard for possible legal action from Schwarzenegger.
The aliens you're fixated on aren't from neighboring countries: Have yourself a Close Encounter, an imperial stout with an extra dose of hops that makes it worth Drey-fussing over.
For now they're just distributing to local beer shops like Binny's and West Lakeview Liquors, but come summer, they'll unveil a bottle shop & taproom where they'll fill growlers and dole out tastings, ideal for anyone who can't even spare some change.
