Dayton Ohio is getting both a historical and a functional brewery. I read about it in the March edition of All About Beer and here is what the Dayton Daily News has to say, “When the Carillon Brewing Co. opens in Dec. 2013, Carillon Historical Park will become the only museum in the nation producing and selling beer and wine using historic tools and techniques that date back to 1850, according to museum officials.” (You can read the full article HERE)
You will be able to watch how beer was made in the 19th century and the beauty part is that you can taste the old versions against current commercial beers and either see a difference or not. And I am sure it will give a great comparison to the current brewery tours as well. I am sure the smell alone will be drastically different.
Sounds like a fun museum to visit.
