Lake Effect Brewing Company
Come celebrate the release of a truly Local beer here on Thursday, September 25th from 6-10 pm. It's Local with a capital "L." 45th Ward is a pale ale brewed with hops grown on the Northwest Side. 15 growers harvested their hops and brought them over to Lake Effect Brewing Company LLC to be included in this now annual brew. The mixture of Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Chinook, and Nugget hops add a smooth hoppy aroma and flavor and balanced by rich Wisconsin malt. Local mural artist Cyd Smillie from Arts Alive Chicago developed the label for the limited run of bottles. Several bottles will be raffled off as well as Lake Effect glassware.
