Flossmoor Station Brewing Company was founded 15 years ago by Dean & Caroline Armstrong in Flossmoor, Illinois. A historic train station in Flossmoor needed renovation, & to house a brewery was the perfect solution. (Thus, Flossmoor Station.) 2011 marks the brewery’s 15th year of operation by the couple. (Who ironically never owned a brewery or restaurant before owning the brewery. 15th Anniversary is being brewed this week, using yeast cells they propagated at Flossmoor from their new beer “Le Chien Blanc Wit” they will be tapping at the end of the month.
Celebrating our 15th anniversary this July 8th, 2011, we brewed this special Belgian inspired tripel to commemorate the occasion. This golden ale exuberates a nose of earthy spices mixed with a bouquet of fruity aromas. A malty body that finishes slightly dry is backed by a substantial 15% ABV, which is to celebrate our 15 years of dedication and devotion to harnessing the wonder that is beer. — Head Brewer, Nick Barron
