SHARE New Beer’s Eve toasts the new style of Old Style

Ah, the new flavor of Old Style. Yes, Chicago’s unofficial brew of choice has a new flavor. Well, an old one. They’ve gone back to, er, the old style of making it called Kraeusening. Beer geeks love this news. (Look, Old Style has a Web page. That is adorable!)

Anyway, the good news: To celebrate this momentous development, there are two New Beer’s Eve events this week. The bad news: they’re out in the ‘burbs, which usually involves driving, which doesn’t pair well with drinking, like, at all. So hit up your favorite chauffeur designate for New Beer’s Eve at 9 p.m. Thursday at 115 Bourbon Street in Merrionette Park (Local H is playing!) and 9 p.m. Friday at Maxum Bar and Grill in Hinsdale (with the Flips!).
