Against The Grain Hits It Out of the Park

Over the past year, I have met and chatted with Against the Grain Brewery & Smokehouse (AtG) co-owner Sam Cruz a couple of times in my hometown of Chicago, and each time, he left me all worked up over checking out his brewpub down in Louisville.

During a Fourth of July holiday trip, I finally got my wish, and Cruz was gracious enough to meet up, give the lowdown on his business, and lead me on a private tour of the space.

A New Milestone – American Breweries Top 3,000

Light Beer Takes A Dive

                                     Bob Dylan – Things Have Changed

So we figured it’d be a good idea to keep an eye out for certain styles and labels you won’t find in your neck of the woods, making your next bottle trade or share event even more bombastic.

A homebrewer for 7 years, Tom Albright took his passion to the next level in 2009. After visiting White Birch Brewing, Candia Road, and Squam Brewing, he was surprised to discover that they were all brewing on small and sometimes homebrewing-sized systems.
