January marks the beginning of a new year. We hear it all too often – this is our year – I’m going to become a completely different person – say goodbye to the old me, say hello to the new me.
Obviously this rarely happens. You create some vague arbitrary goal that you don’t really have a plan for or set waypoints to follow along that journey. One of the biggest New Year’s goals is to “be healthy”. That is such a large all-encompassing goal, that it’s hard even thinking where to start. We here at Lakeshore Beverage are composed of all different kinds of people, and plenty of us have thought about drinking things that are “better for you”.
What is “Better For You”? Well, that too is an all-encompassing label. But in reality, it breaks up into several different things. For Lakeshore Beverage, “Better For You” could mean beverages that are lighter in carbohydrates and calories, it could mean real, minimal, and non-processed ingredients, lower alcohol content, or no alcohol content at all. You might be looking at some, or all of these things.
“Better For You” is really up to the person making the journey, and we here at Lakeshore Beverage want to help by providing you options and information to help you along.
And hey, even though this only covers the beverage part of your health, you can take the momentum and apply it to other parts of your journey.
So, let’s get started, shall we?
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.
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!
