Belgian-inspired beer is on tap at the newly-opened Penrose Brewing Company at  509 Stevens St. near downtown Geneva and brewery tours are expected to be offered soon at the 14,500-square-foot facility, according to the Aurora News Beacon. 

Eric Hobbs, 33, of Geneva, and Tom Korder, of Batavia, worked on the concept for Penrose Brewing for about three years before opening in mid-March and their beers are available in the Penrose taproom in Geneva and also for sale locally through a wholesaler, according to the article. 

Beer is also available to take home in a growler, according to the Penrose Brewing Co. website. 

Some of the beers brewed by Penrose include: Proto Gradus, a Belgian-inspired Single Ale; P-2, a Belgain-inspired Pale Ale; Navette, a Belgain-inspired black ale; and Devoir, a Saison Ale, according to Penrose's website. 

Penrose Brewing Company plans to soon offer brewery tours at its Geneva facility. For $10, visitors can get a beer, a glass to keep and a 45-minute tour. The weekly tour schedule is expected to be posted soon on the Penrose Brewing Co. website. 

Penrose is open 1 to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 1 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
