Born + Raised
For all Chicagoans. Anytime.
A beer brewed for our hometown, Born + Raised is a Chicago Style Ale. Easy drinking with a touch of sweetness from corn, slight fruit character from our house ale yeast, all balanced off with a light bitterness from noble hops.
Locally made and painted tap handles
Born + Raised tap handles begin their journey in a local workshop. Cut from raw wood, each handle is etched on three sides with the remaining side left blank. From there, Goose Island partners with Chicago-based artists to hand paint a canvas comprised of 100 individual tap handles. Once the canvas is completed, the tap handles are distributed to Chicago establishments. Each tap handle is unique and has a numbered plate, in the same way every Chicagoan is part of our city and every neighborhood is part of our hometown.
About Tap Handle Editions 1-100
The buildings in Artist Nate Otto's work are inspired by the buildings in Chicago, but not directly reflective of them. He’s thinking about cities; their density, the neighborhoods, the inhabitants of the buildings, and the nature of city blocks, while working on the images, but they are not based on any specific places.
