The hops come through clearly and dominant on the nose, delivering a floral aroma backed by warm, slightly sweet malt.


Up front you’ll taste a slightly bitter and sour note of grassy hops, but it quickly gives way to a buttery, toasty grain malt. The hops take a twist, moving from the bitter green to a more floral taste. The body is lightweight and smooth until the swallow, turning dry on the finish. The whole taste happens in a flash, so let it warm slightly to stretch out the taste.


A solid pairing for a chicken vindaloo or spicy stir-fry.


Pours the colour of honey with a slightly hazy body and medium carbonation. A frothy, generous head of small bubbles rests on top of the pour.

Maplewood Brewing and Distillery was the first double-production facility in Illinois when it opened its doors in 2014. A few years of slogging away and their Lounge opened, at the same time their craft began distribution across the state. A slow and tasty wave has moved across Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, and now up into the frozen north, as Maplewood makes pushes out of their home state to give everyone in the world a taste of their craft beer and liquors. Adam Cieslak, Paul Megalis, and Kevin Holl maintain the same enthusiasm and dedication to well brewed craft beer that they had when it all began. Five year-round beers decorate the slate, along with a handful of seasonal releases, running the gamut of styles. The Charlatan is a classic American Pale Ale with a variety of hops that delivers an evolving flavour on the palate with citrus notes for balance. Serves well at 8°C and should be enjoyed promptly.
