For episode 236 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder head out to Geneva, Illinois to visit Tom Korder and Eric Hobbs at Penrose Brewing Company. Tom and Eric give the low down of what they’ve been up to since the last time we all got together at Hopleaf.
Penrose is doing great for only being open for a few weeks now and is already talking about what’s next. On Sunday there were people waiting outside for them to open and by the time we left to head back to Chicago the taproom was busy with locals drinking and coming in for growler fills.
Eric closes out the episode by giving us a run down of the events they have planned for Chicago Craft Beer Week. So if you haven’t had a chance to try anything from Penrose Brewing yet, Chicago Craft Beer Week is your perfect opportunity.
Cheers! And thank you for watching the Hop Cast!
