I associate it more with corner tavern signs – the clearest of all indications that you're in Chicago
Old Style is croisened
Is there a native Chicago beer? Old Style is from LaCrosse and Hamm's from Minnesota. The Heileman Brewery was my first brewery tour and they served me without checking ID despite being just 17 years old.
Actually, there is a dive bar on Western Ave whose name I forget that has a very fine 'mini-pitcher' Old Style deal... For like $3, you get what amounts to a mini-pitcher (if I had to guestimate, it's about 1/3 to 1/2 a standard size pitcher) and a mug. Even though I have fortunately graduated to a level of affluence where paying $3.50, even $4 for a drink just means a few ramen noodle dinners -- I still enjoy buying my very own mini-pitcher.
sounds like the Mutiny
There's a mess of good breweries in the Chicago area now: Goose, Half Acre, Revolution, Metropolitan, 5 Rabbit, Three Floyds, Two Brothers, Wild Onion...there's a sour beer specialty brewery called Break Room set to open in January in my neighborhood (Albany Park).
I usually use Honker's Ale in my chili.
Meister Brau was big in the city and eventually Miller would buy the company and turn it into Miller Lite.
