Begyle Brewing Co. will open its tasting (read “samples only”) room Saturday.
Begyle, in Ravenswood’s industrial corridor at 1800 W. Cuyler Ave., is a community supported brewery. The business was inspired by co-founder Brendan Blume’s post-college stint working on a farm. Selling prepaid monthly boxes of produce helped the farm get through lean times. Hoping to pick up the same benefit, Blume and co-founders Matt Ritchey and Kevin Cary decided to join the country’s small handful of CSBs.
The brewery sold out its first round of memberships that entitle members to between one and four 64-ounce growlers a month.
