This is Part 5 in a series of The Taste of Emporia vendor Q&As that will lead up to the event on April 18th!

Diane Harris is the Office Manager for Big John’s Brewing Company.

Q: What can you briefly tell us about Big John’s Brewing Company?

A: We were established in 2013 in Salina, KS.  We have a tasting room that seats over 100 people, so it’s a great place to hold events, family gatherings and reunions.  We currently have 8 beers we make on tap and are always adding a small batch of something along the way for variety. We have a pizzeria located in the same building as us.

Q: What has your experience been like at previous Taste of Emporia events?

A: Last year was our first year at the Taste of Emporia and loved the idea of having breweries, wineries and distilleries. This gave people more choices in their tasting.

Q: What do you look forward to most at this year’s Taste of Emporia?

A: We look forward to more variations than just the breweries.

Q: What products should this year’s participants expect from you? Anything new?

A: We will be bringing our Rye Ale and Oatmeal Stout this year.

Q: What new products do you have coming available that we should know about?

A: New things we have coming available will be a Vanilla Porter, Mai Bock and Chili Blonde Ale.


Be on the lookout tomorrow for the last Vendor Q&A!
