LINCOLN PARK — Drinking Goose Island's most sustainable beer is now going to help a massive park project in Chicago. 

On Earth Day, Goose Island announced a new partnership with The Trust for Public Land, which is working to bring The 606, also known as the Bloomingdale Trail, to life.

Proceeds from every barrel of Green Line Pale Ale up to $25,000 will be donated to the land trust to create parks and green spaces in Chicago, including The 606, according to Goose Island.

The 606 will transform a three-mile elevated rail line into a trail system connecting a series of parks.

Green Line Pale Ale is only distributed in Chicago and in draft only to cut down on packaging waste and to have a low environmental impact, according to the brewery.

“Green Line Pale Ale has been a huge hit in Chicagoland and fans can feel good knowing the beer will make an even bigger impact on the city we love as well as the local environment,” said Brett Porter, Goose Island Brewmaster. “We’re excited about the partnership with The Trust for Public Land and can’t wait to see The 606, and other projects, come to fruition.”
