Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap (41 E. Superior St.), the beer focused restaurant and bar in Chicago’s Gold Coast announces an exciting partnership with local brewery Penrose Brewing, as the two collaborate to craft an exclusive wheat pale ale. Patio Crusher will be tapped for the first time ever on Thursday, May 12 at 6 p.m. at Jake Melnick’s.
To be among the first ever to try the limited edition beer, guests can imbibe on the Patio Crusher for $6 per pint. Penrose Founder Eric Hobbs and Head Brewer Tom Korder will be in attendance to celebrate the launch. Attendees who purchase the Patio Crusher that evening will receive raffle tickets with the chance to win a free tour for two people at the Penrose Brewing facility in Geneva, a $50 Jake Melnick’s gift card, or a custom-made t-shirt featuring the collaboration beer.
Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap Beverage Director Emilie Sharboneau and Operating Partner Tony Bisciglia made their way out to the Penrose Brewery earlier this spring to brew the beer on the Penrose brewing system with head brewer Tom Korder.
