Chance the Rapper Gets His Own Beer From Goose Island
Goose Island's No Collar, a Helles-style lager, will debut at next weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival
Hip-hop heads, microbrew fanatics, and blue-collar workers rejoice: Chance the Rapper now has his own beer. The Chicago rapper worked in collaboration with hometown brewery Goose Island to create No Collar, a Helles-style lager that Chance requested be brewed “for the hardworking people of Chicago.” No Collar is “exactly what you want to drink after a long day of work,” says The Chicago Tribune (via Spin). No Collar will premiere at next week’s Pitchfork Music Festival, and will soon be available in bars across the city.
This isn’t the first time that Goose Island have worked with a rapper. In 2013, the brewery created a beer for FLOOD 1 cover stars Run the Jewels, which also premiered at Pitchfork. “I wanted them to make a beer that tasted like kush,” Killer Mike said at the time.
