Back in 2014, I went to Wandawega for the first time. and met my future wife..It was a perfect fall day when Pete & @Pnevins of Middlebrow brewery met, a @kinfolk dinner that @jasonhammel brought @lulacafe to create..Pete explained that he had just left his career as an attorney to chase his dream of opening a brewery with the purpose of supporting those in need. Polly was managing at @lulacafe – and the rest is history. .This picture was taken on that day – and it just ended up as a label for their newest endeavor : the Wine Co. of @middle_brow_beers_and_winesIts called Float a sparkling chardonnay that (as they describe it): like a Midwestern lake splashWe think its a beautiful example of how Chicagos creative and culinary communities come full circle in ways nobody can predict. All these years later – theyve grown in so many beautiful ways most recently -a new baby boy. Congratulations @pnevins & Pete. I hope you bring the family back soon. Although our rope swing has been locked up for years (from campers who are less athletic) it still hangs strong and it may be time to reshoot this photo .Float is carried at all of our local favs including our culinary partner @__all_together_now__ .Why We love them:Middle Brow Beer Co believes in good beer and supporting their community. Part of this commitment to their roots is found in their apprenticeship program, which gives training and hands-on experience to Chicagos disconnected youth. Great beer is only possible with the help of great people, which is why Middle Brow Beer Co invests locally, to bring the best beer they can make to a national audience..Our friends @prezpipe & @noelbronson grabbing a pic on the lodge pool table
