Our History

These are the buildings when they were purchased. The one with the green awnings will be our tap room and the one to the left of it will be the brewery.

There was a Mexican restaurant in this building before. We have ripped out most everything

Took the awning fabric off, it was gross and torn. Ordered material to make new ones.

Facade-Mid-Scrape

Scraping the paint off, there is brown, green, orange, blue, and white layers. Super gross.

Ramp-Before

Back of building before any construction. The ugly peach color is the back of the brewery and the even uglier orange and green on the left is the back of the tap room.

blogbeergarden

This beer garden looks super funky but there is room for potential. We will start that project next spring.

Ramp-After

Back of brewery during construction. Added concrete loading ramp and fancy roll up door.

The brewery was some weird tool pawn shop or something, all this was torn out to leave a concrete shell for the brewery.

Trenches-Pre-Drains

This is the inside of the brewery after the concrete has been cut for the drains.

July 18th, 2016. Epoxy finally on brewery floor, Boris chilling on it. I know it seems like we are not updating this page very often. So much is going on but it doesn’t really look like it so I don’t post many photos. From this picture you can see we are getting necessities like lights and such, pretty exciting stuff. Tanks and equipment are supposed to be delivered August 1st.
