I look forward to celebrating with y’all! ⠀”Though this is the last Keeping Together beer that I will be releasing here in Chicago, and it is bittersweet to say the least, this is not the end! Keeping Together is in the process of relocating operations to the beautiful state of New Mexico, and I am very excited to get back to brewing as soon as possible. I hope to share more news on this front soon!⠀It is hard to put into words just how incredible my time in Chicago has been. The people here are one of a kind, and the Chicago beer scene is objectively one of the very best in the world. The opportunity to learn from folks in the beer industry here has been one of the most inspiring and humbling experiences I have ever had, and I am so very grateful for all of it. Thank you to everyone here in Chicago for holding space for me to rediscover what saison (and beer in general) can be. I will be forever in your debt.” — Averie Swanson, Founder & Beermaker of Keeping Together
