Baderbräu Launches Lawnmower Lager
Chicago, IL – The smells of summer fresh cut grass, BBQ and of course, ice cold beer. Just in time for the change of season, Baderbräu, brewer of Chicago’s original craft beer, is pleased to introduce its latest seasonal beer, Lawnmower Lager.
Created by Baderbräu Founder, Rob Sama, who resurrected the brand in 2012, Lawnmower Lager is a citrusy hop-forward India Pale Lager that is perfect for the upcoming summer season.
“Lawnmower Lager was designed to be consumed on a hot summer day,” said Sama. “It has a lot of hop flavor and a fruity aroma with just the right amount of bitterness. It’s an easy drinking beer that will go great with anything you cook on your backyard barbecue.”
Lawnmower Lager will be available at Chicagoland Binny’s, Whole Foods, Noble Grape, among others, as well as on rotation at various bars and restaurants, including Beer Bistro, Beer Market, and Franklin Tap.
About Baderbräu Brewing Company
Originally Baderbrau was brewed in 1989 by the Pavichevich Brewing Company of Elmhurst, which at its height produced more than 14,000 barrels of Baderbrau annually. During that time, it was sold in over 2,000 restaurants, nightclubs, taverns, hotels, country clubs, liquor stores and grocery and convenience stores with distribution in 12 states. In 1998, as Pavichevich Brewing met with financial difficulties and could no longer keep up with demand, Goose Island acquired the rights to brew Baderbrau and did so until 2002, when it decided to focus entirely on its Goose-branded products. In 2010, Rob Sama formed Baderbrau Brewing Company with the assistance of master brewer and original Baderbrau pilsener creator Douglas Babcook to bring back Baderbrau Chicago Pilsener to prominence. In 2013, Baderbrau released its second varietal, Oktoberfest. Over the years, Baderbrau won several awards and was once regarded as the “best pilsener I’ve ever tasted in America” by acclaimed beer critic Michael Jackson and most recently for Oktoberfest, the “People’s Choice Award” from the 2013 Lisle Ale Fest.
