One of the most anticipated breweries to open in the suburbs is More Brewing Co. located in Villa Park, Il. Head Brewer Shaun Berns won a GABF Gold Medal for his chocolate stout while at Ram Brewing, and now he brings his talents to an independent brewery that offers great beers and great food.
This week, the Brit sits down with Shaun after a hard day’s brewing, and we sip a couple of brews and chat about the journey to open the new location, brewing his first beers while construction was going on, and he has an exclusive announcement about their first bottle series.
Shaun chats on other topics such as beer takeovers, pricing product, and their new canning line which is being installed as we spoke. Head over to More and find out for yourself why this brewery holds much promise for the craft beer drinker!
We also get Shaun’s opinion for an Instant Brew Review, which turned out to be a little longer that the word ‘instant’ suggests, as Sonny, one of the owners joins us to get in on the tasting. Our brew for this is Sierra Nevada’s Barrel-Aged series, Trip in the Woods, called Islay Fog, a salted caramel scotch-style ale.
