5:00 - 7:00 pm 🍺 Born + Raised Release & Tasting Event with Goose Island
Beer on the Wall, 106 Main St., Park Ridge, IL 312-720-3732  🌎
In the days before Prohibition, Cream Ale was the preferred beer style of the blue collar worker. Born + Raised is Goose Island's nod to the Cream Ale originally brewed and enjoyed by Chicagoan's. They added a dry hop to this clean and refreshing ale that has a slightly sweet malt body and undertones of corn that complement our signature house yeast flavor.
This beer has a lot of character, right down to the custom tap handle made in a wood shop in Garfield Park. Just when we thought that Goose Island couldn't make a more quintessential Chicago beer (three-twelve, that is!) Born + Raised is another solid brew in their local lineup. Come grab some and see for yourself!
