Description

An anchor tenant of The Plant, Chicago's premier vertical urban farm and food business incubator, craft brewer Whiner Beer Co. exemplifies the collaborative, sustainability-minded startups populating this former meatpacking facility in Back of the Yards. Their beer program focuses on barrel aging and sours with wild yeasts, producing exotic and frequently amazing results. The taproom is industrial chic with high ceilings, concrete columns laced with edison bulbs and wooden tables with built-in planters. Once up and running, The Plant's anaerobic digester will be fueled in part by Whiner’s spent grain and will produce energy for the entire building.
