Why do people love craft beer? You could narrow it down to a few
major factors: Quality ingredients, community support and promoting
a local economy. Those reasons are why people gravitate to craft
beer, to be a part of something bigger. If any beer can hold all of
that under its belt, it’s El Paseo Pale Ale from south side
Chicago-based Lo Rez
Brewing
.

El Paseo is a wet-hopped beer that uses hyper-local hops. Named
after the community garden where the beer gets its hops, the El
Paseo Community Garden is only a stone throw away from Lo Rez’s
Pilsen taproom. Lo Rez’s mission to be community-centered is put
into action. They even go so far as to have an open invite during
the hops harvest, meaning you could participate in picking the hops
that go into the beer you will later drink. And another plus? A
portion of the proceeds made from sales of El Paseo will go back
into the community garden.

The Pale Ale pours smoothly into a glass, giving off a golden,
slightly rust color that sparkles in the sun. With a cream-colored
foamy head, the beer meets your lips with a refreshing sensation.
It’s light on the tongue, an easy drinker, and gives off an
earthy tone. With hints of floral and spice, the beer lingers on
the taste buds. 

Sometimes simple ingredients are just best. The beer is light
and perfect for a crisp fall day. The taste is reminiscent of
crunchy orange leaves, burning wood and a sunny day in the park
with friends. 

As we spend more and more time at home and the days get shorter,
there’s a light knowing that even in times of disconnect and
divide, a wonderful product filled with community and care is still
in the world.
