First case of Pale Ale rolls off the line!

Wow! We spent the last few days taking down our bottling line at Marathon and moving it to 910 Division. It takes a lot to run one - electricity, compressed air, CO2, and water. All the conveyors and tables have to be realigned. But after a lot of hard work, bright red caps were again rolling down the line. I couldn't resist, so I grabbed one of the first bottles. Our Pale Ale has never tasted so good - maybe it was just from the relief and elation of finally tasting a beer made at our new brewery, but I swear it was the best beer I have ever had! Hey, let us know what you think - the first beers from our new brewery will soon be at a store near you, starting with Pale Ale bottled the second week of April!

Beer Board grants us permission to begin brewing at our new location!

Heck yeah! The beer board granted us permission to begin brewing at our new location! That's the good news. Here's the bad: they were uncomfortable with us brewing high-alc beers like "Sue" and felt that they needed more documentation from the state ABC to prove that we had gotten all the appropriate licenses and permits. So brewing "Sue" will be on hold for at least a couple of weeks while we try to prove that the ABC is satisfied with what we are doing. I hope it is not longer than two weeks, but you never know. Might want to run out and buy a case now - god willing, it won't be the last one for a while, but you never know!

Story and pics about the new taproom

Check it out - very cool picture of a Brian filling a growler at our new spot in the Gulch.

And thanks for all the great feedback on the new taproom! We love working there and I hope it shows!
