Explore Chicago with Old Style

Spring is here, the weather is warming, and it's the perfect time for some urban exploration. With a rich history and diverse set of neighborhoods, Chicago is the perfect place for your expedition. While making your way through the city, be sure to enjoy Chicago's beer, Old Style, which debuted on local shelves in 1902. A crisp, light pilsner, Old Style has a medium bitterness with a full flavored body and delicate aftertaste.

We've teamed up with Old Style to bring you something a little different than just your standard badges. This time around, the badges will be both digital and physical.

With the Old Style Neighborhood Patch Program, the goal is to check-in an Old Style beer in each of the 19 Chicago neighborhoods listed below between March 31st and July 31st. Each neighborhood has it's own unique badge that you can unlock plus you'll unlock a promotion to have a real life corresponding patch sent to you from the Old Style crew. That's right, a REAL badge sent to you to put anywhere you want.
