Environmental portraits – Brewmaster
Award winning brewmaster, Anthony Benjamin, allowed me to spend part of a day watching and photographing the science and magic of creating beer at Triptych Brewing in Savoy IL. One of the key things I learned is that along with the science and magic, making beer is a lot of hard work, and a lot of patience. This amazing microbrewery, just off the beaten path known as South Neil, does not offer food or wine, just a welcoming place to gather and enjoy beer that was created on site. Beers with names like “Blueberry Blonde” and “Hoppy Anniversary” indicate immediately that you are in for a unique tasting experience. Attention to detail, sourcing locally whenever possible and love are just a few of the ingredients contributing to the success of this unique microbrewery right here in the Champaign-Urbana-Savoy area!
