Our friend (and fellow homebrewer) Ted has gotten himself hooked up to a real-life brewery: Half Acre Beer Company, based out of Chicago. Their story is an interesting one. Half Acre doesn’t yet have their own brewery, but they are working on it. In the meantime, they’re contract brewing with some friends farther North.
We’re going to try to snag an interview with Ted and/or Half Acre, but in the meantime, check out their site. Right now they only brew a lager. I’m not huge on lagers, but I’d be willing to give this mother a try.
