They just keep on comin'. Wednesday we had two different brewery owners in the house. Firstly the boys from M.T. Barrels in West Dundee came by on their way to the local malt warehouse.
Frank, their owner, and Mike their head brewer (formerly of Prairie Rock Schaumburg) came by for lunch, beers, a tour, and some brewer bullshitting. I still haven't made it out there since they opened this past year but the place is supposed to be beautiful on the inside. So Matt and I entertained them while we were brewing Gandy.
THEN, out of the blue, one of our servers came by and told us that a brewery owner from the UK is in and wanted to say hi to us. It was Jeff from Lovibonds Brewery in Henley-on-Thames.
It turns out they are a small brewery just a little west of London. If the dollar ever recovers and traveling abroad can again become a feasible reality I'd love to check them out. Look at their website, and look at their history section. Sounds like a brewery with a lot of tradition.
In the next few weeks we will start putting up some bottling updates. DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUN!
