The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and the holiday season is here. This is a season filled with office holiday parties, family get togethers, Christmas themed bars or cold nights in binging Netflix. But, this is also the season of some of our favorite styles of beer and we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites.
Guten tag, Chicago!
Oktoberfest is officially underway!
Bars, pubs and restaurants across the city are pouring German beers, serving up traditional German fare and raising their steins to celebrate their German heritage.
No matter if you’re celebrating at one of the many Oktoberfest parties across Chicagoland, celebrating at a German style pub, or having a small gathering among friends, here are five Oktoberfest beers that should be in your liter sized stein glass these next two weeks.
After what seemed like a perpetual winterspring, Chicagoans can finally rejoice and bask in the glorious summer season — we made it. Get ready for concerts in the park, patios, rooftops, farmer’s markets, and oh yes, grilling out with your friends! We’ve hand-selected some of our go-to beverages for when it’s time to cookout and enjoy the sounds of fireworks in the distance. And to sweeten the pot, we’re partnering with Drizly to offer $5 bucks off your order when you use the code 5OFFLSB courtesy of Drizly*. Cheers to summer in Chicago!

For the third year in a row, Zymurgy magazine — produced and published by the American Homebrewers Association — named Bell’s Two Hearted Ale as the Best Beer in America. Not bad for a list that also boasts cult-favorites like Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, and Zombie Dust in its top 10. And while Two Hearted may not have the mystic and allure it once had when it was first released, there’s no denying its place as an institution within the IPA category.
