LINCOLN PARK — Armitage Avenue's farm-to-table spot Blue Door Farm Stand is now serving beer.
The restaurant, which focuses on getting its ingredients from Midwestern farms, has continued that trend with most of its beer list.
Blue Door had been a BYOB restaurant since opening in February at 843 W. Armitage Ave.
The restaurant began selling craft beer this week and plans on adding a wine selection within the next two weeks.
The beer selection includes:
• Dark Horse Brewing Company Crooked Tree IPA. From Marshall, Mich., a heavily dry dropped beer with aromas of pine and citrus giving it a dry, crisp and clean finish. $6
• Vandermill Totally Roasted Cider. From Spring Lake, Mich., a cider that boasts four pounds of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in every 30-gallon batch. $8
• Smuttynose Brewing Company Robust Porter. From Hampton, N.H., a hearty, mahogany colored ale is a smooth, drinkable beer characterized by its well-balanced malt and hops with subtle notes of coffee and chocolate. $6
• Two Brothers Brewing Company Domaine Dupage. From suburban Warrenville, a food-friendly beer with a toasty and sweet caramel start. It finishes with just enough hops to cleanse the palate. $6
• Penrose Brewing Company Pronto Gradus. From suburban Geneva, a Belgian-inspired single-hop boasts notes of florals and a fruity yeast aroma. It is described as crisp, clean and quenching. $7
• Glutenberg Red. From a Montreal brewery that features a selection of all gluten-free beers. The Red is their most distinctive in flavor with aromas of toasted nuts and hints of caramel. $8
• J.K. Scrumpy’s Organic Hard Cider. From Flushing, Mich., this Organic Gate Gold Cider is a unique, artisan Michigan farmhouse cider with only two ingredients: apple juice and yeast. Each bottle is hand-filled and labeled then aged for several weeks. $9
• Anderson Valley Brewing Company Summer Solstice. From Boonville, Calif., the Solstice is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it has become known as “cream soda for adults.” $6
