The Story of Garrett Popcorn's CaramelCrisp and Revolution Brewing's Caramel Ale



A new take on a Chicago mix, indeed. Chicago’s iconic Garrett Popcorn has collaborated with another Chicago icon, Revolution Brewing, and is giving hopheads ingredients to rejoice in a CaramelCrisp-flavored ale.

That’s Chicago for ya…
