A craft brewery in Lake County will have its beer featured at a private tasting event Thursday for members of Congress. Saint John Malt Brothers Inc. says two of its partners will represent the state among nearly 30 U.S. breweries at the gathering, which is sponsored by the Brewers Association.
Saint John Malt Brothers President Jim Estry and Vice President Dan Cox will be serving their Hesperidium American India pale ale, Burnt Bottom Brown English brown ale and a Killer Queen BB’s bourbon barrel-aged selection. Estry says "we are excited to be able to participate in this event and to be able to bring high quality Indiana beers to our nation’s capital."
The company’s beers are being distributed throughout northern Indiana by Valparaiso-based Indiana Beverage Inc. It also self-distributes in Lafayette, Indianapolis and parts of central and southern Indiana.
Saint John Malt Brothers opened in February and currently has a 15-barrel production capacity.
