McCormick Place gets its own craft beer from BrickStone Brewery

The craft beer craze has officially arrived at McCormick Place, which is preparing to launch its own branded beer at the Chicago Auto Show beginning this week.

McCormick Place Everyday Ale, brewed by the Bourbonnais-based BrickStone Brewery using some hops grown in the rooftop garden atop the convention center's West Building, will be available in cans and on tap at "select McCormick Square and BrickStone locations" on an ongoing basis, according to the Thursday news release.

The convention center joins other Chicago institutions like the Field Museum and Morton Arboretum, which have launched their own craft beers.
