Penguin Hops Release Party
Enjoy an after-hours party at Shedd Aquarium and raise a glass to celebrate Penguin Hops, a harvest ale made by Chicago's own Revolution Brewing, with music from American Idol winner Caleb Johnson. Penguin Hops is brewed from hops grown in Shedd's sustainable gardens - like much of the foliage surrounding the iconic Chicago building, the aquarium planted the hops nearly a decade ago to be both visually pleasing and purposeful. When it came time to harvest the hops, Shedd partnered with the popular Logan Square brewery to ensure the fragrant plants would not go to waste. For the second year in a row, you can purchase Penguin Hops -- and for each pint sold, Revolution will donate a dollar to support the aquarium's global and local conservation initiatives. This family-oriented release party features (adult) tastes of the ale, music, fascinating facts from a resident penguin expert and more!
