Brew Days

After months of planning, construction, and paperwork we have finally reached our goal of brewing on our system.  This week we'll be brewing our first three batches.  Our Mo-mentum pale ale and Whistle Stopper red ale are currently in the tanks.  The Local, our hazy NE style IPA will be brewed Friday so all three are available for the opening.  More details on the beers and our official opening date coming soon!

Approvals!!

We have obtained our federal and state approval to begin brewing!  We're setting up the final pieces of our system before we get ready to brew in the next 10 days.  Clearing the license hurdle means our target of opening in late October is close to a reality.  We'll keep you posted when we set our opening day.

We've also been busy getting the taproom ready to go.  Bar top has been installed, TVs are up, and almost all painting is complete.   We have a few items left to address that we'll complete while our first three batches are happily fermenting in the back.

Cheers!

Taproom Progress

We've been focusing the last couple weeks on our bar and taproom area to get ready for the October opening.  Freshly stained boards and some vibrant paint is starting to give life to our building.   Our two TVs will have plenty of sporting events for you to watch while having a pint with friends.

Busy Nights

We've been hard at work several nights this week.  Plumbing has passed it's initial inspection and most of the dirt is back in place.  Underground electrical conduit has been assembled and run to the main breaker.  We'll be ready to put our floors back together soon!  

Oh.....and check out that sign!
