Brew Barn Update 3/13/18

Progress is happening in the Brew Barn, and things are finally starting to take shape! Here’s a little update on the different aspects of the brewery:

On the remodel front:

  • HVAC work is beginning today!
  • The utility room walls were sanded and painted on Saturday in their original, pre-1950 paint scheme in preparation for HVAC
  • The barn was fully spray foam insulated at the beginning of last week
  • Measurements and plans were made for the stairway to the haymough
  • Plans were made for the window that will be behind the bar to see through to the brew room

On the Brewery Front:

  • The brewhouse was ordered, and is expected sometime in May
  • The first fermenter was ordered, and will be here by the end of the week for inspection and assembly
  • The final LLC organization paperwork should be back to us this week, allowing us to begin the official brewing paperwork

On the Beer Front:

– Our test batches of Straw Hat (Jalapeno Lime Kolsch) and Illumination (NE Style IPA) are finished fermenting, and will be kegged this week to be carbonated and tested!
