EPISODE 58 – SEGMENT 2 >
PIVO Brewery grows hops, pears, apples, peaches, cherries, apricots, raspberries, and cucumbers for use in beer and cider. Stop by and see what’s growing on site.
Beehives on land farther west turn native prairie flowers into sweet honey, used in some of the beers and ciders.
Spent grains are sent to a local farmer who feeds them to his livestock, and we hope to have that meat on the menu, completing the circle of life and deliciousness.
