Cheers to 100 years with WGN Radio as Chicago’s Very Own, 720.

Chicago’s Very Own Golden Lager is a limited, exclusive release brewed specially for WGN Radio’s 100th anniversary in collaboration with Metropolitan Brewing, Conrad Seipp Brewing Company, and the Chicago Brewseum.

Crisp and refreshing, Chicago’s Very Own is a golden-colored lager with a mildly toasty, malty flavor that gives way to a clean finish and a spicy, floral aroma.

The first cans will be available for purchase at Metropolitan Brewing’s Beer Release Party at the brewery (3057 N. Rockwell in Chicago) on Friday, May 20 beginning at 11am with celebration activities starting at 5pm. The Chicago’s Very Own Beer Release Party at Metropolitan Brewing is open to the public
