This afternoon we went on a tour of the Argus Brewery which is located in the Pullman District of Chicago.
Our tour today started outside where we were told about the history of the Schlitz Brewing Company buildings in the Pullman District. Pullman railroad car workers were living in a dry community until Schlitz decided to open its doors to provide beer to the area’s 10,000 workers.
Schlitz Brewing Company left Pullman years ago and the building is one of the only remnants of its existence. The building is now home to Argus Brewery, which was founded in 2009 by Robert and Patrick Jensen.
