Episode 38: Opening a Taproom, the Making of Human Combat Chess
This week’s, it’s about grand openings! We’ve got one of the Twin Cities’ favorite local theatre productions opening their signature show, and a Minneapolis Brewery who has been killing it for years at bars and restaurants across the Twin Cities finally has a home of its own.
You’ve heard of Pryes Brewing, I’m sure, had the award-winning Miraculum at your favorite watering hole … but did you ever wonder why Pryes Brewing had no taproom? Nowadays, that seems pre-requisite. Well, the wait’s over! Pryes Brewing will open its taproom on the lovely Mississippi River this weekend, complete with a wood fire pizza oven, and four new beers!
Pryes Brewing co-founder Jeremy Pryes looked back on the journey, which began back in 2012. He talked about the mastermind behind his gorgeous new taproom and the method behind the complete lack of madness in his brewhouse. (Intro)
