This post is not about lumberjacks, but we do have lumber… and a lot of plaid.
The progress we’re making now is feeling really good. We finally nailed down (pun intended) our construction contract and work has started!
These are the walls at the back of the tasting room space. There will be a small office area (I gotta have somewhere to work on my spreadsheets) and then the fermentation space. These walls will be behind the bar, where we’ll also have a sink and (eventually) a dishwasher. We’ll be running cooled glycol/water through that block wall from the chiller in the back up to the fermentation room, where we have 2 jacketed fermenters and 1 jacketed brite tank on order.
We have already made a few changes to our initial plan, some of which hinge around the door sizes (I’m full of puns today). We’re trying to think ahead for bringing in more fermenters and having an easy access path to get them into position.
This will be the drains of a new toilet and a new employee shower! We gotta look good to pour you beer…
In other news, we also got new business cards. Yep, we’re legit. Also, in case you haven’t heard (har har) we have a Kickstarter campaign ongoing – it ends this Friday Oct. 2nd, so get in there now if you haven’t!!!
