USA, IL: Ravinia Brewings second brewpub in Logan Square, Chicago already open to public
Ravinia Brewing opened a second brewpub in Logan Square, nearly two years after the brewery brewed their first batch of beer in the same neighborhood, porchdrinking.com reports.
Ravinias second brewpub location opened to the public on Friday, May 7. The brewery has been around since 2017, where they began distributing from their Highland Park facility, which later become the location to house their first brewpub.
Ravinia may be new to the Chicago craft beer scene, but the people behind the Logan Square brewpub are not. Head Brewer, Raul, comes to Ravinia with extensive experience in craft beer, including 5 Rabbit Cervecería. Eric Fritzsche, Ravinias general manager, comes from the beloved Piece Pizza and Utopian Tailgate. Head of Restaurants, Gabriel Boden, joins the team from Revolution Brewing, where he spent the past seven years as GM of the Logan Square brewpub. Leading the back of the house team are Juan Carlos Bueno and Christian Sanchez, both joining from Lagunitas kitchen in Chicago.
From their flagship beers to their seasonal offerings, Ravinia has a unique offering of beers sure to appeal to a mass audience. Their newest flagship addition, Diversey Station, is a Session Pale Ale that pays homage to their newest brewpub location. They also offer small-batch limited releases, including recent offerings such as Isle of Hops, a Hazy IPA, and Casa de Guava, a Guava Berliner Weiss. Head Brewer, Raul, plays off Ravinias food menu to create innovative beers to pair with the cuisine. The menu is ever changing, but thankfully flagship offerings, such as Steep Ravine, arent going anywhere.
