June Lake Brewing
Gad Zooks ~
Wow, totally apologize for the radio silence (last update was April Fools), but it's really been that busy. From cutting down and milling the bar (thanks for the help Johnny) to standing/placing our tanks and brewhouse, we've been checking boxes off the ever shortening list. Check a snippet of our forth coming construction time lapse - http://vimeo.com/92418265. Our Director of Visual Awesomeness (yeah Robert Bradford!) is masterminding the full time lapse for release after opening and it's going to be world detonating. So yeah this is totally happening!
Here's most of the stuff we've got left:
Right now we've allotted ~20 days from the day we brew our first production batch until we can open, so we basically have a month to get the production area buttoned up, get signoff on our building permit, and start brewing. After that we can focus on getting the tasting room and signage dialed in. Twenty days is plenty time to build a tasting room with a 30'+ bar made from a 100 year old Jeffery Pine tree and a genuine meat hook from the civil war era (*not sure on accuracy of actual age).
So stay tuned for developments and stop by if you want to take a look at progress, but don't get bummed if we don't have time for a full-on tour... gotta build the brewery first B-)
Thanks, and Cheers!

Brewhouse Has Arrived ~
With all of our tanks and brewhouse on premise we're ripping on the construction to get everything ready and stand the tanks. Again a freaking amazing turnout for hanging/taping/mudding the 8,140sqft of drywall. BIG thanks to all of the Loopers (and Cismontonians) that showed up and put up, and super special thanks to Jonny Widen and Dave Thomas with Premier Painting Plus for getting it done right. Look for the 8140 beer later this summer after we open to pay homage to all those that helped out.
Later this week we'll throw some paint on the walls and get the epoxy coat on the floors in preparation for the final plumbing and positioning of our brew setup next week. At this pace we're confident in a late June Grand Opening! Stay tuned for more details, and start thinking about your accommodations as we expect a pretty big turnout.
Thanks, without all of you we wouldn't be where we're at today... Oh yeah, Cheers!
