The official press conference was held yesterday, so we can now blab on the internets about the wager between our city, the city of meaty shoulders, and our Blackhawks, and Vancouver and their Canucks. Half Acre has put up two cases of beer, one case of Daisy Cutter Pale Ale 16oz cans and one case of Gossamer Golden Ale 16oz cans. Should the Hawks fall we will send our beer to Vancouver, but we're banking on the fact that not a single drop of our brew will cross the northern border anytime soon. The great part: the Hawks and Canucks have a serious distaste for one another. It should be a brutal bout.
Pictured above is me gabbing on the mic with the Mayor to my right and the president of the Blackhawks to my left.
Big thanks to the Mayor and his crew for supporting craft beer in Chicago.
