Pubcast 273 – Corridor 55 Special Release #5 – Black Horizon Brewing

It’s a different version of our Corridor 55 Special Release series, as we aren’t recording in front a live audience, but rather due to everyone’s busy schedules, we are in the brewery on a brew day so the taproom is closed. However co-owner Charles St. Clair and head brewer Alex Stankus are on-hand to talk with us, and it turns into a bumper edition.

Corridor 55 Special Release focuses on the breweries who have opened along the Heritage Corridor, I-55 interstate between Lyons and Plainfield.  We ask each of our interviewees to select some of their brews that they feel fit into 3 categories, plus we all taste a fourth one from the next brewery in our trip down I-55.

Join us for this inside chat when we find out about the brewery, their brewing styles, and a little bit about the guys behind the brewery. It’s the Brit, the Yankee, and series producer Kevin Herbst, barging in on a brew day, and enjoying some good beers and conversation. Plus we get to add hops and stir a batch of ESB that Alex is brewing, so odes that make it an official collaboration?

And although they couldn’t make the recording we managed to head over to Skeleton Key and get Paul Slayton’s take on the Chain Beer, so stay tuned for the end of the podcast!
