Same Legendary Beers – New Name: Myths and Legends Brewing



The Chicagoland beer distributor continues distribution of the brewery formerly known as Urban Legend Brewing Co., which officially rolls out the new brand Aug. 22 with a series of launch events

(LINCOLNWOOD, IL; Aug. 18, 2016)—Beginning August 22, Louis Glunz Beer, Inc. begins distribution for Myths and Legends Brewing Company, the Westmont, IL, brewery formerly known as Urban Legend. Glunz has distributed the company’s beers, which include Scylla’s Grasp Mosaic Pale Ale and Cold War Russian Imperial Stout, since 2014.

“We have enjoyed a strong relationship with Urban Legend and are excited to support them during this transition,” Glunz Craft & Specialty Import Brand Manager Anthony Norkus says. “We want to congratulate the team on the name change to Myths and Legends, and cheers continuing to bring innovation to Chicagoland’s beer landscape.”

Myths and Legends COO Shannon Hancock says, “Glunz has helped us expand across the Chicago market. As a small and local brewery, Glunz has helped us in ways we would not have been able to do. We look forward to continuing this very beneficial relationship with our new name.”

The name change maintains the values of the brewery, Hancock explains. “We chose the name Myths and Legends because it represents who we are: people who tell interesting stories with our beers. The name is similar to Urban Legend, and it allows us to further embrace the myths, legends, and other stories we love sharing.”
