Brian Buckman (Illuminated Brew Works) Over Beer

Roughly a year ago, we featured Illuminated Brew Works' Orange Sunshine, a citrus saison, at our My Kind of Town beer tasting and have been a fan of theirs ever since. Finally, Jorge and I had a chance to sit down with Co-Founder of the brewery, Brian Buckman, and chat over beer about his history with brewing and the craft beer industry, why they decided to propagate their own yeast and the amazing bonfires they host. Today is officially the first day of Chicago Craft Beer Week. Make sure you keep an eye on all of the awesome events Illuminated will be a part of.
