2018-12-05

CHICAGO—Revolution Brewing, Chicago's largest independent brewer, is

rolling out the dance floor on Wednesday, Dec. 12 for its inaugural We Are Family

fundraiser — an event to support the LGBTQ community and raise donations for Chicago House

and Social Service Agency.

"Calendar-wise and weather-wise, December in Chicago is about as far from Pride weekend as

you can get. We wanted to organize an event that showed our commitment to supporting this

community year-round," John Carruthers, Communications Manager for Revolution, said.

The event will feature a musical celebration of brass jams from Sousaphones Against Hate from

6-7 p.m. and a dance set from DJ Jill Hopkins from 7-10 p.m.. Alongside the entertainment, We

Are Family will feature the debut of Loud & Proud, a blood orange Session IPA. All sales of the

beer will go to benefit Chicago House from the day of the event through Sunday, December 16.

"With the holidays coming up, we also wanted to provide a warm, welcoming space for people

who may not be with their own families this year for whatever reason," Carruthers said. "And to

us, nothing's more welcoming than an army of sousaphones and a huge dance party."

We Are Family will also feature a silent auction, with items from partners including the Chicago

Bulls, Girl and the Goat Hospitality, the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, and more, up for bid.

The winning bids will be tax deductible and processed directly through Chicago House.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken will be on-site serving food, and will be donating a portion of their

sales. Attendees can RSVP for updates and information on the We Are Family Facebook page.
