The Brit headed down the Fox River for a follow-up visit to Oswego Brewing Co., and he sat down with head brewer Marc Wilson ahead of the official ribbon-cutting ceremony, and found out what he had been doing in the past 6 weeks. Co-host Chuck Fort also makes it down after a heavy day of brewing at Church Street.
The official opening will be Friday, May 18, co-coinciding with the start of Illinois Craft Beer Week, and it promises to be a VERY busy weekend for the crew here at the brewery.
Also stopping by are co-owners Chris Heinen and Panit Patel, and we taste all of their initial offerings which turn out to have something for everyone, and they are all solid brews. The Brit also corners the Village President of Oswego, Gail Johnson, who turns out to be a craft beer promoter for events like Brew at the Bridge.
We talk first about Marc’s Gold Medal for his recipe at his previous brewery, Nevin’s, and his Hook and Hatchet Vienna lager. Then we move on to the focus brews that he has produced at OBC. All that and the ribbon cutting hub-bub makes it a busy night in Oswego!
