Re: Broad Shoulder Brewery

Heres an update from an article in Time out 9/30:

Broad Shoulders Brewing

Where: Building out a space on South Michigan Avenue for a taproom and production facility; it’ll be one of only a handful of LEED certified breweries in the country.

When: February for the 10bbl brewhouse taproom starting with collaboration beers, and pouring the facility’s in-house creations shortly thereafter in March

Initial offerings: Two flagships to start with bi-weekly special releases along with collaboration beers

After starting at Goose Island’s brewpub and Fulton Avenue production facility and then moving to Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewing as their quality control manager, head brewer Frank Lassandrello saw the quality assurance issues that can occur when you fight for shelf space, which is why freshness is paramount to him.

“A lot of beer sits for a very long time,” he says, which is why he was planning on Broad Shoulders being a production facility for distribution of Lake Shore Drive Lager and Blue Eyed Blonde kegs only—until the neighborhood told him they wanted a taproom as well.

After adjusting his plans accordingly, he’ll have a space for growler fills and special-release 22-ounce bombers. The taproom features tables made from reclaimed ceiling joists pulled from his historic Motor Row building.

Starting with collaboration beers and two main flagships, Lassandrello’s brews might be the first local craft beer many non-Chicagoans ever taste—his space is located just steps from McCormick Place West and its many thirsty conventioneers.
