On Friday night, May 6 at the Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia, Tracy proudly accepted the silver medal for Magnetron Schwarzbier on behalf of the entire Metro Brewing team. This is a worldwide competition hosting thousands of entries. The German Schwarzbier category featured 51 entries, including beers brewed by the very German breweries we so admire. For a brewery full of jokers who don't reach for awards or really, any external validation whatsoever, we're deeply honored for this recognition and we will continue to do our best to live up to the standards set forth by the World Beer Cup competition. The full list of categories and winners can be downloaded here (pdf).

Keep your eye out for our swank new truck delivering the good stuff in Chicagoland! Designed by our good friend Josh Bucher. The robot's name is Fritz and as you can see, he destroys.

2016 is going to be a big year for Metro Brewing. Our expansion plans are in place, including 20,000 square feet in what will be a stunning destination for all Chicagoans, native and visiting. Michael Kiser at Good Beer Hunting scooped the story. Ally Marotti at Crains Chicago provided follow-up details.

Turns out everyone loves a good Schwarzbier. In honor of your good taste, we've added Magnetron Schwarzbier to our family of year-round beers. This 5% ABV black lager looks as beautiful on your holiday table as it will on a rooftop in July. Enjoy, friends!
