Beach House Brewing

Started in an apartment on the decidedly not-beachy Beach Avenue in Chicago, Beach House Brewing is the ongoing homebrew efforts of Xander Wikstrom, Hannah Flynn, and other rotating guests. The first time we brewed, there were five of us. I wanted everyone to have a hand in making the labels, even though the participants weren't particularly oriented towards crafts. So, I carved up some linoleum stamps, and started the tradition of BHB hand-printed labels.

Florida Room Pale Ale

A Florida Room is another term for a sunroom. Our Florida Room has lattice walls, which allows the breeze to come through on a hot day. The Florida Room Ale is perfectly crisp and lightly citrusy, great for sipping in your sunroom.
