Thanks to Revolution Brewing for their partnership and strong support of the individuals we serve, both during Pride and all year round. Every purchase of their new Watermelon Mint Session Sour benefits Chicago House--try it today at their Brewpub or Taproom!

Pride isn't something we define with a calendar. Pride, to us, is fully seeing your fellow human beings and valuing them for everything they are. And at Rev, whether it's June 16 or the middle of a frigid December, it's about that fact that you're welcome here with us.

If you're wondering how you can help support people living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS, we encourage you to learn about Chicago House and the work they've been doing in our communities since 1985. All profits from Pursuit of Freedom: Watermelon Mint will go to support their vital mission.
