June Lake Brewing
Beer is Nearer ~
Hurray for June Lake! Now in residence it was a nice treat to wake up to fresh snow on the ground. With ~2" on the ground at 6am another ~2" had fallen by 9am! All of the beer sacrifices to Ullr have come to fruition. Aside from the glorious snow, we've been hard at work setting up our homebrew system (see technical schematic and before/after visual representation below) and should brew our first batch with June Lake water late next week. Suffice it to say we're really excited!
On the location front we've been talking and walking it in town and have a couple potentials in mind. If you've got an idea, or better yet have a commercial space you think would work, please reach out and lets talk beer! In the meantime getting some sample batches going is our priority #1.
Big beers are what we're going for and we plan to make three of our first four sample batches along these lines (always gotta have at least one fizzy, though still full bodied session beer). Finalizing our initial recipes, we're working to ensure the scalability to production volumes once we get to that point. We'd never forgive ourselves if we created some phenomenal beer that we couldn't reproduce on a large scale due to insufficient supply of specialty ingredients. So stay tuned for more updates after our first brew.

Beer is Near ~
With February fast approaching we're getting closer to June Lake. In the mean time we've been building our homebrew pilot system and getting the ducks in a row. With supreme tutelage and support from the groovy cats at Cismontane Brewing we've been cutting our teeth and learning what it takes to make good beer and craft a viable business that's a killer part of the community.
In search of the right location for our production facility/tasting room/awesome hangout, JLB is a ways from selling beer. Fear not, with our budget pilot system (construction visually dipicted to the right) we plan on honing our skills at altitude and getting feedback on our fermented creations from our bipedal friends that search us out in June Lake. Lots of cool stuff happening so keep an eye and reach out to say what up.
