Somewhat close. We're in Statesboro, GA. Our distributor goes to Augusta, we will be on tap there very soon.

Grand Opening is expected in 30 days.

Pretty sweet kid. Having just finished up at UC Davis I totally get your passion. Good luck and thanks for the fun read.

Been unrolling the pale ale to the public. SO many BMC drinkers out here, hocking a massively hoppy pale ale is more difficult than expected.
Alas it is hot down here, the drinkers just need a well crafted thirst-quencher.

Fighting the good fight.

Lots of fittings in! Brewers hose, aeration assembly, a ton of butterfly valves, and (finally) our missing thermowells.


I got to take the pale ale to a beer-bar. Reception there was excellent, far better than Monday. We are doing an unrolling tour in Savannah all week, but I can't seem to stay away from the brewhouse too long or I have nightmares of it going missing.

Have been waiting on boiler and glycol plumbing all month. It started this week. We hope to be online by next week.

The start-up investment is amazing in the business. Put it all together and it all comes down to the brewer! An awesome read! Other than all the more complex components of the commercial brewhouse, any difficulties in scaling recipes? That mash shovel sounds awesome. Discharge spent with turn of the switch. Good luck and keep the posts going

So I'm curious how the brewery is progressing? I just toured another brewery in GA that is not quite 3yrs old and they are targeting 7200 BBL this year.
