Signature ale

Signature Ale

We have our own special beer and it’s called Starved Rock Signature Ale. Produced by Leinenkugel Breweries, the hand-crafted beer is a cross between an English-style amber ale and a pale ale. It’s fresh and it’s on tap. “You can’t buy it in a store,” said Food and Beverage Manager, Andrea Yeruski, “You can only get this at Starved Rock’s Back Door Lounge.” The last time we counted, Starved Rock sold 7,582 pints of Signature Ale!
