Raise a Pint to Raise Funds for Logan Square’s Illinois Centennial
Land and Sea Dept. x Logan Square Preservation x Revolution Brewing
Chicago-based concept and project development studio Land and Sea Dept., is spearheading a project to improve the historic Illinois Centennial Monument, located in the heart of Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. Land and Sea have partnered with Revolution Brewing and Logan Square Preservation to create a special beer, aptly named “Monument” to raise funds for restoring the nearly 100-year-old structure.
Designed by Henry Bacon with the sculptural base by Evelyn Longman, the Monument was dedicated in 1918 to mark Illinois’s 100 years of statehood. The Monument, which stands at the roundabout intersection of Kedzie Avenue, Milwaukee Avenue, and Logan Boulevard, in is need of several structural and cosmetic improvements, including masonry repairs, and the restoration of original benches, plaza pavers and the globes that topped its bronze light fixtures.
Also located in the heart of Logan Square, craft brewery Revolution Brewing, has developed “Monument,” a special draft-only beer that will be available at Revolution’s brewpub and tap room starting Wednesday, June 17, and at other participating locations around Logan Square throughout the month of June, including Land and Sea Dept.’s Longman & Eagle and Parson’s Chicken & Fish (see a full list of participating venues below below). For each pint of Monument sold, $1 will be donated to Logan Square Preservation, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
Monument is an American wheat ale, brewed with a bit of white wheat and flaked oats and dry-hopped with Crystal and Centennial hops for a touch of hop aroma and flavors. This is a highly drinkable and refreshing ale, clocking in at 5% ABV and 30 IBU. Revolution brewed a very limited amount that will be on draft only at the participating locations, so grab a pint where and when you can!
We all feel like this is a great cause, one that beer drinkers in the neighborhood can all get behind and support!
