Lemont vs Everybody ReplicAle, a rare sour rye Saison that was brewed for 8th Annual Oak Park Micro Brew Review will also be tapped. Mazzie Pale Ale Nitro, a nitrogenated version of the brewery’s year-round American Pale Ale that is in limited supply and will not be available again until sometime in 2016 is also featured.
