IMPORTANT BEER THOUGHTS

A little window shopping

We did a little window shopping the other day, for ideas and to scope out future sources for decorations and ingredients.

Really. Window shopping.

We started out the day at the Winchester City Market, a relatively new (and great!) addition to the downtown walking mall.

It's not today. It was Saturday, but this post is today. I apologize for the confusion.

Bonnie and Holly were mostly interested in getting familiar with the produce spread, though we aren’t currently planning to have a tomato beer when we open, so I’m not sure what Bonnie was getting distracted by.

Thinking about tomato sandwiches, I guarantee it.

After the market, we took a little trip down to Front Royal to visit a place we had heard rumors about.

Worth the drive.

It’s a house salvage place called “Architectural Old House Parts,” and it’s full of magic.

Told you we were window shopping.

If you’re in the Front Royal area, I highly suggest stopping by this place.  Great inventory – we will almost certainly be back through here.

 

As a sidenote, we stopped for a “research” trip to the cool little spot Pavemint Taphouse in town, and had a delightful lunch.  I even met a 96-year-old woman who told me how she traded her Oldsmobile in at the dealership that used to run out of the building, and then bought it back a month later.  And then bought a Jaguar 2 months after that.  Definitely the kind of person I could be friends with.

Keep checkin’ in, we’ll keep you up to date on what’s going on!  And with it being (again) just beautiful outside today, you should head down to the downtown mall, walk around, and maybe strike up a conversation with a stranger.  You never know what stories they’ll have to tell.

Bring an adorable dog. Then other people will strike up the conversation for you.

Well, hello there!

Whew!

Who knew opening a brewery would be so much work?

We’ve got some great plans for the Big Gray Box we currently inhabit.

We’re hard at work at 320N Cameron, doing all the important government-y things we have to do for the physical rehabilitation of our space.  Important, CRUCIAL elements like a 30-foot-long bar, and silly nonsense like bathrooms and doors.

We know you’re eager to see and hear more from us, and apparently drink our beer…unfortunately, the last one will have to wait.

But!  You will be following along with us as we get into the real nitty-gritty, interesting parts.  Get excited, tell your friends, and maybe find yourself a patio to drink on this afternoon – it’s gorgeous out.

Love the valley, love the flora.
