Chicago’s Favorite Beer Styles By Neighborhood
Chicago Craft Beer week just wrapped recently on May 24, so it’s only appropriate that we take a look at the breakdown of Chicago’s favorite beer styles by neighborhood. The study conducted by Lakeshore Beverage compiled sales data from thousands of bars, restaurants, liquor stores and grocery retailers.
Lakeshore’s study compared city wide averages of the consumption of each style of beer with the percentages of one style of beer sold in one neighborhood, which allowed them to find what styles of beer that neighborhood proportionally prefers.
A few notable neighborhood preference results:
Wicker Park and Wrigleyville both preferred Kölsch style beers.
Logan Square and Bucktown both proportionally prefer Porters.
Meanwhile, Englewood, Humboldt Park and Little Village prefer Ciders.
