Premium Lager | ABV 4%
Local’s Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.
Local’s Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Short’s first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.
Short’s Brewing Company
Joe Short registered the business as a young 22-year old in northern lower Michigan, heading the new wave of delicious breweries in that state. He met his wife at the brewery, Leah, and they still run the brewery to this day. Well know as a top-notch brewery by Michiganders, they have recently expanded distribution, coming to Chicago in 2016.
Kolsch | ABV 4.6%
Using European pilsner malt and malted wheat as a base, American Kölsch is bittered with Magnum hops and features herbal, citrusy and spicy notes from end of boil additions of Tradition, Saaz and Saphir. Pouring golden in color, the aroma is of bready malt punctuated by a slightly minty hop character. With a light to medium mouthfeel, American Kölsch delivers a honey-like malt sweetness that gives way to a crisp clean finish with a touch of lingering citrus/herbal hop flavor.
Boulevard Brewing Company
Kansas City, Missouri
Boulevard Brewing Company started in Kansas City, Missouri in 1989 and became "the" craft brewery in that area, brewing great beers and becoming one of the largest in the Midwest.

The good news? They have been considered good stewards for the breweries and still produce high quality beers.

Beer lovers will appreciate its dry maltiness on the palate and pleasantly rounded, faintly bitter finish.
