TC Maker @ Pumping Station One

October 3rd, 2009 by Paul Sobczak

I was lucky enough to get out to Pumping Station One the hacker space of Chicago early this summer.


This is the main area, yea, PS One has two levels!

The space was still in it’s infancy but it was starting to come together, and most importantly people were there and they were making things and talking and sharing ideas about making things.

It's all about the hops.

I attended a brew course in which some of the members of P S one were working out what the their official brew should be, the only consensus was that the brand if there becomes one, should include XKCD’s  Ballmer Peak below:

    You missed it! It was an IPA, decent but a bit sour, and we have a new brew-master by the looks of things.

    Thanks for the article <3
