Oh, I know. I just want to be very clear as often as possible that we're not pulling any shenanigans (this board is filled with 'well if it's a TIP JAR it's not SELLING' posts, after all...)

Did you finally get all those sex toys cleaned out of the building?

Yeah, I've seen plenty of that. So many people try to find loopholes that just don't exist. I just wasn't sure if there was some rule saying that you couldn't use the equipment at all, not just a limit on the space. How long are you expecting it to be before you can start brewing?

I'm looking forward to trying your beer. I have family in Syracuse and Rochester, so a trip to try your beer will be part of a future trip, probably as part of a western NY beer tour.

Good luck.

I just stumbled onto this post and read the Buffalo News article. Can't wait to see you guys open up, this town is plenty big enough for more beer!

Thanks! We're definitely going to have some exciting things coming up soon while we wait for our TTB application to get processed.

Also, people should check out this month's issue of Buffalo Spree. It's a beer issue, with an article on Flying Bison, some homebrewer profiles, an article about the brewing history of Buffalo (that CBW is mentioned in, and I'm quoted in, so I may be biased) and more. It's a pretty good issue.

Also also:

Have you guys heard about the new microbrewery excise tax change? I guess schumer wants to give microbreweries a tax break.

Yeah, if people would care to write in to their Senators and proclaim their support of the BEER Act, that would be swell.

Here's a bit on Fox News http://video.foxnews.com/v/4539680/brewers-introduce-beer-stimulus-plan/.

I just got done reading this whole thread and it sounds like you guys are well on your way to brewing your first beer! I'm rooting for you!

Unfortunately though, I'm in Manhattan Kansas so I probably wont get to try your beer unless I make it up to the northeast.

Keep it going guys!

Just ask Silverado to get some on tap.

I used to be stationed at Ft. Riley and spent way too much time at that bar.
