Original Gravity in Milan celebrates two years

I went to Original Gravity Brewing Company in Milan for the first time last week to cover a fund raising effort for the Village of Dundee.

I met with the owner Brad Sancho, and found out he had to make a major career shift in order to follow his dream of brewing and selling beer.

Sancho was a mechanical engineer, testing diesel emissions, when he got bored and decided he wanted to do something he felt was more rewarding.

Having made home brews as a hobby for a few years, Sancho decided to start looking for a building that could house a beer-making operation and be purchased at a reasonable price.

When he found his location on County Street in Milan, he took the plunge and hasn't looked back for two years now.

It really is quite wonderful to see someone following their passion and doing well at it.

So, happy two year anniversary Original Gravity.
