I took my first trip up to the Beer Cellar and Glen Ellyn to have a talk with a local beer legend. Dave Hawley! He is the OG of the suburban bottleshop scene, and just an entertaining human to talk to. The conversation was fun and plentiful. Dropping some knowledge on building relationships in this industry, and the tough decisions it can present when it comes to beer buying and selling. Just an overall awesome and positive person. This was the best possible way to spend my Sunday morning. Also, if you have not heard of or tried Afterthought Brewing, get out to glenellyn and rectify that!
