Before CANvitational, Get To Know - Two Brothers

We are continuing our series of Brewery posts as Canvitational draws near and next on our list is is Justin Whitney, brewer at Two Brothers in Warrenville, IL.  

Two Brothers got their start in 1997 under direction from Jim and Jason Ebel.  From there, they've grown to two pubs, a coffee roastery, and they sponsor two concert series in Warrenville.  

Look for them and the following beers at the event.

Outlaw - IPA

Sidekick - Extra Pale Ale

Dog Days - Dortmunder style Lager 

Now, without further ado, here's Justin - 

1. What music do you hear most often on the brew deck?  

Recently hall and oats but traditionally the queers and bob marley

2. What's your brewing mission? What are you trying to accomplish with your beer?

Consistent and quality products. We don't strive to push stylistic envelopes but more to keep our customers coming back for different and enjoyable brews.

3. How many beards can be found in the brewery on any given day?

5, depending on if anyone has had any "meetings" recently.

4. Which beers outside of your own do you enjoy? What beer do you wish you came up with? Why?

Cigar city cucumber saison and anything from Toppling Goliath. Wish I thought of rogues voodoo donut. Best if aged but its breakfast in a bottle. All you'll ever need.

5. What's your go-to shift beer after a long day brewing?

Sidekick, but cane and Ebel when shit in the brewery goes aRYE. Pun unintended.

6. What do you drink when you aren't drinking beer?  Are you on #teamradler?

Meads from Moonstruck Meadery. Or coffee from our Two Brothers cofferery.

Our thanks to Justin.  We look forward to having your beer at the event!
