Brewing at Hailstorm

Posted on June 9, 2014 at 11:45 AM

As a result of my gold medals at the B.O.S.S. competition this past March, I will have the honor of brewing three of my beers at commercial breweries this year!  The first of those occurred yesterday when I got to brew my Belgian Dark Strong Ale with Brandon Banbury at Hailstrom Brewery in Tinley Park, IL.  It was quite an experience seeing my recipe for 5 gallons scaled up to brew 465 gallons.  We used nearly 1500 lbs of grain!
