Chevelle announce craft beer collaboration with Chicago’s Revolution Brewing

Posted by on July 23, 2019

Chicago’s Chevelle have teamed up with their hometown brewery, Revolution Brewing, for a brand new craft beer collaboration. The group selected a classic German-style Helles Lager and it’s called La Gargola. This mark’s the band’s first brewer collaboration and they will be celebrating it via the Lager’s launch party on August 1st at the Revolution Brew pub from 9:00PM – midnight.  

The party kicks off the night before Chevelle’s scheduled Lollapalooza performance on Friday (2nd) at 5:45 PM. 

Chevelle frontman Pete Loeffler expressed his excitement: 

“We are incredibly excited to announce our collaboration beer with Revolution Brewing. We chose a Helles-style Lager because we wanted a beer that was easy-drinking and did not sacrifice taste or quality. Being from the Chicago area, we’ve been fans of their beers for as long as we can remember. Having the opportunity to work on our own special edition with one of our favorite breweries is a special moment for us.”

La Gargola was brewed by Revolution Brewing pub brewer John Palos as he commented on the collaboration: 

“One thing that stuck out to me in talking with Pete and the guys was the comparison between making beer and making music. Finding out what works and what doesn’t is almost equally important, just like writing music. It really struck us that a classic beer, influenced by the Reinheitsgebot [the 1516 Bavarian beer purity law] was the perfect fit. This style forces you to dig deeper to find the soul or character of the beer instead of just throwing a bunch of crazy ingredients at it. You build that complexity subtlety, and creatively, with the tools at your disposal – just like the work that goes into a good song.”
