Beer Journal #15: Beer Basics Per Minhas Brewing Company

I photographed this banner on the wall in the tour area of Minhas Brewing Company in Monroe, Wisconsin.

Interesting.

Hops grow between the 35th and 55th longitudes, north and south of the equator, where the sunlight is just right. I wish I'd seen the plants growing at the brewery in Monroe. I did see some of the cones in the gift shop.  

I'm SO glad this brewery's yeast storage facilities, located in three different locations, ensure access to their yeast NO MATTER WHAT!

I can only speak-for-myself Shaddy .. so speaking-for-myself I ALWAYS WELCOME COMMENTS about my grammar and spelling and accuracy of my Posts. I too noted some of the errors. You might just ask them IF they are open to such comments. AMAZING the banners you show. WOW .. this must be a large and big-time operation .. Smiles .. Cap and Patti..

CAP & PATTI: It is amazingly huge. They have a distillery as well. I didn't even mention that or give it much of my own personal attention. I'm all about beer right now.

I like your suggestion regarding the errors on the brewery banner. I'd sure want to know if I was offering tours and appearing ignorant to the tourists!!
