Southbridge wins Battle of the Breweries

IMG955618Southbridge Brewery came out to Goose Island’s Sunday Funday event and won the Battle of the Breweries dodgeball tournament. Jon and I are incredibly privileged to represent Southbridge as a part of this event. All proceeds went to Special Olympics, Goose held a fantastic beer festival and I saw nothing but glorious excitement in the crowd. Thank you to everyone for supporting us… here’s a picture of everyone hitting each other.

Thanks Sessh Fest!

2015-10-12-blue-island-sessh-festOn October 10 we made the journey down to the land of railroad tracks for a fun little event. We’re real big fans of sessionable and drinkable beers, so this event was a must attend for us.

We want to thank Blue Island for having us out for their inaugural Sessh Fest! We had a great time sharing our Southbridge beer with our old fans and happy to make some new fans along the way.

Hope you enjoyed the beer, we’re already working on our next festival.

Tasting at the Beverly Brews Fest

For most of the summer, we’ve been busy brewing up a storm for many private events and tastings. It goes without saying there’s been a ton of paperwork and contractual negotiations as we finalize our location. But we have a public tasting coming up!

We’re donating kegs and serving beer on the Southside for Labor Day weekend.  The Beverly Brews Fest is held by the Beverly Arts Center, and it looks like there will be a dozen other breweries besides Southbridge in attendance. We’ll have at least 4 beers: Southside Ale, Mint Condition IPA, Bring Me Home Berry, and one other not yet decided. There’s really too many to choose from.

Sat, Sept 5, 6 – 10pm. Beverly Arts Center

Check here for tickets to the festival, everything is handled on the BAC’s end. They’ve also put up an event on facecool.

We will be serving free tasters of our beer from 7-10pm, after that, continue the party with a music and decor from the Seventies. See you then… Cheers!

Open Mic/ro Night: from the Chicagoist

So one particular Thursday I was minding my own business on a very late lunch break from work. Browsing on my phone I came across an open submission for homebrew that was happening in about 2 hours at a Craft Beer Cafe by the name of Beermiscuous… Of course a ran home and brought a six pack over for them to try.

The night’s finale was a hybrid between a Belgian and an American Pale Ale brewed by Zigmas Maloni of Southbridge Brewery, a upcoming nano brewery . Named “Southside Ale” the ale was citrusy, and also had an excellent copper color, which gave the appearance of a more professional product than that of an amateur. – Ben Kramer, Chicagoist
