Zay Day!

A major turnout at UNION Craft Brewing for the 100th birthday celebration of Henry “Zadie” Benesch, the brewery’s oldest employee, who personally folds every case tray in the place.

Among the afternoon’s highlights, UNION co-founder Adam Benesch’s tribute to his grandfather/favorite employee…
…followed by a birthday toast…
…personal demonstrations of case-folding by Zadie himself…
…and a mass shotgun toast outside the brewery in honor of the “birthday boy.”
