Help restore Logan Square's Illinois Centennial Monument with a new Revolution beer

Written by

Land and Sea Dept. (Longman & Eagle, Parson's Chicken & Fish) teamed up with Revolution Brewing and Logan Square Preservation for a campaign to restore the Illinois Centennial Monument, which sits in the middle of Logan Square.

They all worked together to make a beer called Monument, an American wheat ale brewed with white wheat and flaked oats and dry-hopped with Crystal and Centennial hops. It clocks in at 5% ABV, making it easy to have more than one.

Monument will be available at the Revolution brewpub starting Wednesday, June 17 until the kegs run out of the limited draft. You can also find it at other spots around the neighborhood, including the Chicago Diner, Longman & Eagle, Lula Cafe and Scofflaw throughout June. One dollar from each pint of Monument sold will go to Logan Square Preservation to raise funds to fix masonry, restore the original benches and repair the globes on the monument, which was dedicated in 1918.
