The NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” is about to start it’s final season — and will also say good-bye to the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
Producers of the program are also saying “thanks” to the Indiana businesses that have helped provide them props to make the setting more realistic.
The show invited the crew from Bloomington-based Upland Brewery to visit the set in Hollywood before they shot the final episode and closed it down. The group from the brewery said the highlight of the tour was when Chris Pratt, who plays Andy Dwyer on the show, visited with them.
If you are a fan of the show, you’ve probably noticed the Upland Brewery logo in many scenes.
The final season of Parks and Rec begins next Tuesday, January 13, at 8:00 p.m. on Channel 13.
