It’s that special time of year again! The weather gets frightful and, in return, the beers become quite delightful. Winter Warmers, Barleywines, Russian Imperial Stouts…this is the time of year where you start seeing a lot more wax dipped bottles in the liquor stores. So what’s the deal? What do we recommend? Well first let’s get some business updates out of the way.
Demolition at the brewery has been underway for a few of weeks now. Cool and pretty exciting, but not without its issues. The thing about the building is that it’s been estimated to have been built some time between the 1930’s and 1940’s. Don’t get us wrong, that’s admittedly pretty cool. The downside seems to be that every single tenant since then has built over top of every previous tenants stuff. That part is not so cool. So far we’ve found secret doors, secret windows, and secret walls built on top of secret walls. Just a lot of extra…stuff. No doorways to Narnia yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Our permit applications have been submitted as well. So hopefully those go through and we can actually begin to build something shortly. Our equipment is also on order and being assembled as we write this.
We’d also be amiss for not giving a shout out to everybody who submitted letters of support to the city for our lounge endorsement! They have received your letters, they have our plans, and now we wait. Hopefully we’ll have a decision in the next month or so. Big thank you again to all those who submitted. The support is fantastic and much appreciated!
We’re very lucky to have a great deal of support for the brewing community as well! Not only have fellow brewers been super helpful with information on starting a brewery, but they continue to support us in helping promote our product. Maple Meadows, Foamers’ Folly, and Moody Ales continue to allow us to brew under their licenses to make sure we can legally participate in as many local cask festivals as possible. We just recently submitted for the Fall Tri-Cities Cask Festival with the help of Moody Ales, and will also be at the upcoming Winter Pro-Am (so get ur tickets!). Lots of fun and great feedback. We are HUGE fans of these events.
If you’ve been monitoring our social media feeds and it wasn’t already 110% clear, we now have one of our beers on tap at Maple Meadows Brewing. This one is our Dark Necessities Mocha Stout which Carlo was kind enough to help bring into reality using his brew house. It’s comprised of equal parts, American Stout, Coffee, Cocoa Nibs, and Awesome. It turned out fantastic and we couldn’t be happier! So feel free to stop by Maple Meadows for a growler fill and be sure to try plenty of their beers while you’re at it. They make some great beers that you should definitely try.
Cool beans!…..Soooooo winter beers?
Oh yeah! Winter beers. You should definitely drink those! I dunno…if it’s over 8%, and has a waxed top you should probably give it a try.
