Chicago Icons at Bacon and Beer Fest
We love bacon, we love Chicago, and we love our fans! Thank you to all the smiling faces we met at Chicago’s Bacon and Beer Fest held in the iconic Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears! The concourse was filled with so many amazing bacon dishes and craft beers, so we were pleasantly surprised that so many of you waited in line to taste some of our delicious craft sodas and award-winning water!
All day and all night we served up some Windy City classics like WBC Chicago Style Root Beer and Green River soda. Whether it’s a recommendation for the best WBC Root Beer float in town or a memory of drinking Green River Soda for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s our favorite thing to hear stories about their personal history with our brands. We added even more fun with our Green River Soda photo frame where fans could take a picture with the Green River Soda leprechaun with Soldier Field in the background.
In addition to the classics, we introduced some new flavors to our Chicago fans. Caruso’s Legacy Limoncello and the soon to hit the market, Oak Creek Barrel-aged BLONDE Root Beer, were a HUGE hit. How amazing were those bacon inspired dishes that were available?!? We had quite a few chefs coming back for refills as the day went on, so don’t be surprised if you see some barrel-aged sodas on a menu near you soon.
Thanks again for stopping by to see us and share your stories! We’ll be back next year with more delicious craft sodas and our award-winning Claire Baie Water. See you next year!
