Behind-the-scenes looks at businesses in any industry tend to be eye-opening learning experiences. In the beer industry, though, they’re even better: they’re eye-opening learning experiences AND you get to taste the beer. Last week, I took a brewery tour at Parallel 49 Brewing Company. I was impressed with the vast knowledge of Lead Brewer, Danny Seeton, and took away a handful of flooring facts about P49 that are definitely worth sharing:
