Chicago Golden Ale

Find Beer

An easy drinking golden ale for everyone. Brewed to be crisp and refreshing with a bit of wheat malt for body and a delicate hop finish.

William Jennings Bryan delivered one of the most famous political speeches ever at the 1896 Democratic National Convention, in Chicago. The speech was named Cross of Gold, and provided the inspiration for one of Revolution's original beers. Jennings Bryan was a populist, something we craft brewers consider ourselves to be. Cross of Gold was first brewed in Josh Deth's basement by Brewmaster Jim Cibak, in June 2009. Two additional batches followed, to dial in the recipe, before becoming one of the initial beers served at the Revolution Brewpub in 2010. Cross of Gold has since taken home Gold at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. It remains a favorite among our employees, and is a top seller at the Brewpub and Tap Room.
