Tour de Patio continues with Pig Minds Brewing Co., located at 4080 Steele Dr., Machesney Park, IL 61115. With cafe lights and vines decorating the patio, this one is serving up good food with a fun vibe.  

You can't go to Pig Minds Brewing Co. and not get a craft beer! Pick your flavor and sip on a hot summer day. Don't forget they have a full bar, so order a margarita or anything your heart desires!

We started with a crowd favorite, the Sweet Hot Brussels Sprouts: crispy brussel sprouts in an agave sriracha sauce. Sweet and hot is right, these have the perfect balance of both flavors to make eating your vegetables a fun treat. Marked as a favorite for a reason, this generous portion is enough to share with the whole table, because everyone will want some!

Next up, the Hawaiian BBQ Pizza: smokey BBQ sauce topped with caramelized pineapple, smoked maple soy curls, red onion, mozzarella, cheddar cheeze, & smokey bbq drizzle. Handmade to order, the vegan pizzas at Pig Minds Brewing Co. are delicious. The hand tossed crust is fluffy on the inside, and provides a stable base for the toppings above. We believe all pizza toppings are created equal, even pineapple, which added a sweetness to this delicious pizza. #justiceforpineapple 

We couldn't leave without dessert! We ordered the Special Brownie: a warm chocolate brownie drizzled with chocolate syrup and peanut butter sauce. This vegan treat is served warm and is the perfect shareable size (or not, we never judge). The peanut butter drizzle really made this brownie out of this world.

Grab a local craft beer and a special brownie out on the patio this summer at Pig Minds Brewing Co. See you there, Rockford!
