Chicago’s Best Kept Secret Since 1921
The Prohibition was a dark time in Chicago, but that didn’t stop two brothers from continuing a great tradition of brewing their own craft beer. John & Dickie Mickson established their brewery underground producing the finest ale of the century. The Micksons produced in small numbers, supplying only the most exclusive and ritzy speakeasies in Chicago. Old Chicago was enjoyed by only a select few and has been hailed a favorite by even Al Capone and Frank Sinatra themselves.
For decades Old Chicago was so limited that it was thought to only have been a historical myth. Now over 90 years later, this grand product has emerged from the underground cellars of the Mickson Brothers to be enjoyed by all.
Other brands hide their dark history. We celebrate ours. And now you can too with the best that Chicago has to offer. Notoriously good. Notoriously Old Chicago.
