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

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!).
