Hello, and welcome! Broad Shoulders Brewing is happy to announce the opening our very own brewery.
Broad Shoulders will be entering the Chicago craft beer scene with a unique variety of high quality, small batch brews created by our Head Brewer Frank Lassandrello.
We at Broad Shoulders Brewing are very excited to be located in the Motor Row neighborhood of the South Loop, at 2337 South Michigan Avenue. We are happy to be bringing a brewery to a new Southside neighborhood. We will be brewing both ales and lagers, with a stronger focus on traditional and experimental lager styles. The brewery will have a large tasting room and bar. We invite you to come in and sample our beers, snack. We will also be selling packaged beer on premise. Look for us on draft at some traditionally known beer bars, and some new locations on the Southside and around the city.
Note from the Brewer:
Hello everyone, my name is Frank Lassandrello. I would like to use this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you who don't know me.
In the Spring of 2004, after returning to home from college, I got a part time job as the brewer's assistant at the Goose Island Clybourn Brew Pub. Shortly thereafter, I was promoted to brew at Goose Island's production facility. The Fulton Street Brewery is where I learned about all aspects of the brewing process. It was also during that period that I attended the Siebel Institute and World Brewing Academy.
After leaving Goose Island in 2008, I became the Quality Control Manager at Lake Front Brewery in Milwaukee where I was responsible for implementing quality control procedures and assisting with product development.
I currently live in Bucktown with my wife Elizabeth and my daughter Ophelia. I've been looking forward to this project for years, and I can't wait to get brewing in the new facility.
