One year ago we journeyed to the Radium City Brewery to see if the rumors of a locally made beer were true. We knew it was going to be something special when we tasted our first Radium City beer. Now, one year later, we have seen Radium City Brew expand to multiple restaurant and liquors stores around the Illinois Valley and Starved Rock Country. We were super pumped to sit down with Dennis, Adam, and Brian to catch up on things and see what the future holds for the best beer around.
