The local craft beer scene continues to explode, as brothers Jesse Edwin Evans and Samuel Evans, founders of New Chicago Beer Company and Lucky Hand Brewing (Oakland, CA), have finally found a home and name for their new brewery. It's called Ale Syndicate and will be in the Green Exchange complex in Logan Square. They're starting with three beers: Municipal India Pale Ale, Richie Imperial Porter, and Sunday Session (ale). Expect to see them on tap around the city next month and in stores later in the year.
The brewery is currently under "massive renovation", and the beer is being brewed at Big Chicago Brewing Company (Zion, IL) and Galena Brewing Company in (Galena, IL). When complete, the brewery will feature a taproom where patrons can sample the suds. It's been almost a year since they left The Plant, where they originally planned to open. Try them out at the Chicago Beer Festival at Union Station on March 30.
