Hello readers, The craft beer movement is moving into McCormick Place. North America’s largest convention center is now also the first in the country to have its own branded beer using hops grown on the building’s rooftop. McCormick Place Everyday Ale made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show the weekend of Feb. 11 and 12. It’s described as a “refreshing Session Ale with a light malt backbone and hopped with Citra, Amarillo and Cascade hops.” The brew is an example of SAVOR…Chicago’s commitment to providing culinary excellence to the convention center since taking over operations in 2011.
Chicago’s leading community and corporate company Wintrust Financial Corporation has announced they’re opening a new event center at the McCormick Square that will be called Wintrust Arena. This announcement came from a letter of intent that was signed with DePaul University.
