It has been a little while since we've updated everyone on our journey, but trust us, we were saving you from reading about a lot of mundane details, and negotiations, and delays, and never ending paperwork, etc. etc. But, after meeting with the general contractor and stopping by the building yesterday, we are happy to report that progress is being made!

We are excited about the construction and wanted to share some of the progress with you guys. Below, we've included some pictures of the work.
A lot of work had to be done prior to even pouring the floors. Underground piping for the water and sewer were set in gravel and inspected
Once all the plumbing got the "ok," the floors were poured. The picture on the left was taken from the front door, looking back towards the tap room area. The picture on the right is looking towards the front tap room area from the brewery area in the back of the building.
Once we have floors, we can start building walls. Lumber delivery.
As construction continues, we will keep everyone updated. The number one question we get asked is when we are going to open. Since the estimation of this date has changed about a half dozen times since we first signed on the dotted line, we'd hate to set a date and then let everyone down if we don't make it due to issues out of our control. As we get closer to completion, we will be sure to let everyone know!
