This new lager from Springfield Brewing Co. will help fight poverty in Southwestern Missouri

Springfield Brewing Co. Mic Check Lager

Also available at retail stores across Springfield, Mic Check Lager is now the official beer of The Cellar, Springfield Brewing Co.’s newest bar and music venue.

Springfield Brewing Co. has added a new beer to its lineup: Mic Check Lager, which supports six poverty-relief organizations in southwest Missouri.

Queen City Shout – a local music, film and art festival that benefits Community Partnership of the Ozarks, Great Circle, Harmony House, Isabel’s House, OACAC and The Kitchen – will distribute the donated funds.

“We’ve been partnered with these nonprofits for almost five years,” says Eddie Gumucio, founder and organizer of Queen City Shout. “[Springfield Brewing Co.] approached us about partnering, and it just made sense for us. We are very humbled.”

You can enjoy a pint of Mic Check Lager at The Cellar, Springfield Brewing Co.’s newest bar and music venue in downtown Springfield, or pick up cans at area retailers such as Brown Derby, Macadoodles and Price Cutter. The brewing company has pledged to donate up to $5,000 of profits in 2022.

Todd Schade, director of operations at Springfield Brewing Co., says Mic Check Lager pairs well with any of the food at The Cellar, and he would personally enjoy it at home with a big bucket of chicken wings. “It’s a very crisp golden lager, and it’s our lightest beer. It’s super easy to drink because it’s our lowest ABV beer, and it’s definitely our lowest calorie beer, as well.”

You can also support the aforementioned poverty-relief organizations at the next Queen City Shout festival from March 21 to March 27.
