Why craft brewing is like ‘giving medicine to the sick’: Metal Monkey Brewery (Episode 184)

This week, Dan and Jason of Metal Monkey Brewing (515 Anderson Drive in Romeoville) jump in my car as the annual Baconstock festival in Romeoville was going on in the background. Metal Monkey is a beer fan’s favorite… especially in the Romeoville area.

During the course of our chat, we talked about:

  • The balls it takes to start a brewery
  • Why the lack of craft brewers in the area makes Metal Monkey Brewing the equivalent of medicine men.
  • The new Oktoberfest beer.
  • How the beer ideation process works.
  • Metal Monkey has a beer for all seasons.
