Originally called Golden Leaf in the 1890's, Old Style first appeared on shelves in 1902 in Wisconsin. It came to Chicago in 1935 and it wasn't long until it was known as Chicago's beer - being poured in all the neighborhoods across the city. And in 1950, Old Style began sponsoring the Chicago Cubs. Old Style is a Chicago staple. It's a traditional pilsner, light yellow in color that smells like corn and grain. It's a very drinkable beer, best enjoyed when watching a baseball game, on a patio or shutting down the bar.
