Old Style Cubbie Style

Old Style, historically, is a Wisconsin beer from La Crosse. But in the 1950s, Old Style became a sponsor of the Chicago Cubs and has been associated with the Windy City ever since. There are at least two generations of Chicagoans alive today who, when they think of baseball, they think of Old Style Beer.

Founded by the G. Heileman Brewing Company in 1902, Old Style is today a part of the Pabst Brewing Company.

In regards to taste, nobody will ever confuse it with Samuel Adams. But Old Style is a great brew for the ballpark or cookout. Best served very, very cold, Old Style is refreshing summer-time beer that is more than capable when it comes to washing down brats and dogs.
