Golden Handle Brewing serves up craft beer for a cause

Craft beer for a cause. That’s the mission of Golden Handle Brewing Company. 

What started as a smaller project is now flourishing into a full-on brewing operation in the former Steel Barrel space on S. Madison. 

Taproom Coordinator Alexa Ymer said Golden Handle started as a way to bring high-quality craft beer to the region, while also raising money for biomedical research.

A portion of the funds from every beer sold will go directly to helping find cures for neurodegenerative disease and cancer. 

Ymer said the brewery is currently in a soft opening phase but has plans to kick things into full gear during a grand opening celebration on September 8 and 9. 

There are 30 beer taps in the taproom; 15 are made by Golden Handle, while the other 15 will feature rotating beers from across the region. Drinkers will also be able to enjoy a cider, mead, kombucha on tap, as well as a variety of canned beers. 

Visit Golden Handle at 154 S. Madison Thursdays through Mondays from noon to 9 p.m.
