LOGAN SQUARE, CHICAGO
To follow up last week's "Best New Brewer in Indiana" (18th Street) as our feature, we hone in on the branding from the "Best New Brewer in Illinois." Ale Syndicate is Logan Square's brewing crown jewel, housed in part of the Green Exchange campus on Diversey. Although they began as the 'New Chicago Beer Co.' and plans for a home on the South Side, they've made huge strides not just with their facility, but with their beer portfolio -- and of course, they have an impressive brand to match. That visual identity was tackled by Chicago firm DesignScout.
