If you love beer, you might consider pulling out your credit card to support an intriguing new project: There's a crowdfunding campaign underway to open The Chicago Brewseum, a museum that would celebrate the culture and history of Chicago’s beer industry.
The goal is to raise $25,000 toward building that would begin in 2019. Preliminary plans include interactive exhibits, a bar and tasting room that would offer crafts from the best local breweries and room for public programs and beer events. The Brewseum also intends to be housed in a multi-story, LEED-Certified building.
