Brew Good & Do Good with CLA on September 20!


Sharing a drink has long been a way for people to connect and share stories. We decided this would also work to connect our communities, so we collaborated with Pilsen’s Lo Rez Brewery & Taproom to create a specific beer that is meant to accomplish exactly that goal. Join us on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 6 - 10 p.m. at Lo Rez Brewery and Taproom (2101 S. Carpenter St.) to celebrate the launch of our GoCivic Saison, a beer with a purpose.

The name of the beer is derived from the community and civic engagement platform created by The Chicago Leadership Alliance, GoCivic. The platform provides Chicagoans with an opportunity to engage with local civic leaders, community-based organizations, businesses and nonprofits to positively impact the future of the city. A portion of each GoCivic Saison sale will fund the nonprofit engagement platform to forward the progress of bettering our city, neighborhood by neighborhood.

The evening will feature Yvolina's Tamales, drinks and DJ Bumbac Joe. Additionally, we will highlight Pilsen Fest, a nonprofit business incubator located in Pilsen, to showcase their philanthropic efforts and integration with the GoCivic platform.

Don’t miss your opportunity to help “brew good.”
