Serving Beer Direct from Tanks to Glass for the Freshest Beer Possible
Ike & Oak Brewing Co., an independently owned, local craft brewery and restaurant, is excited to announce its now open. The bar features 16 taps that include draft beer, house-made cocktails, and a cider option; a selection of spirits will also be served at the bar. Our taps are hooked up directly to our serving tanks to ensure that our customers will be poured the freshest beer possible. Customers will be able to view the brewery’s tanks from every vantage point in the establishment. The space includes an indoor-outdoor beer hall, game room, and patio. Ike & Oak will also have a private event space to host rehearsal dinners, parties, and work events.
Head brewer, Nathan Tertell, has been brewing professionally for eightyears. Starting his career in 2011 at Two Brothers Brewing Company, he then joined Lagunitas Brewing Company in 2013 as one of the first six brewers at their Chicago location. In October 2015, he accepted the Brewmaster position at Baderbräu Brewing Company. Nathan is now thrilled to be the head brewer at Ike & Oak – the brewery has a 10 BBL brewing system, so he will be able to brew much smaller batches allowing for more creativity and flexibility than at his previous organizations.
