If you do, please report back to us what you find! Last time I drove by there it was under heavy construction. These pics look pretty, cool, particularly as you scroll towars the bottome of the page.

The offical opening of the Tap Room is the 5th - a Tuesday. I propose a possible SNIZZLE meet there that weekend - either Friday evening, the 8th or Saturday, the 9th. Any interest?

I'd likely be in, but my wallet might be afraid to go. Last time I was out there and took a tour at the old location, I ended buying a case of Cane & Ebel bombers, a few pint glasses and a few other bottles. They gave me a little discount on the case though.

I guess I'll call out there on 2/2 and see if they're open or not. I'll post if we head out there if anyone wants to get a preview before an official SNIZZLE outing.

ps - anyone run into any of those Cane & Ebel 4-packs yet? It'd be nice to have a few of those in the fridge on Super Bowl sunday. I haven't spotted them anywhere yet.

Nope; not yet. Agreed, it would be a nice addition to any Stooper Bowl party.

That sounds great. Maybe we could try for a saturday in Feb. (9th?) and take a tour of the new brewery. I'll be doing that on some saturday sooner than later anyway, may as well give it a shot.

No, that would be great!

That Saturday afternoon would be ideal for me. I forgot that I have an 8:00am appointment that morning, so Friday evening would be out for me.

On the UKG email forum, we get pretty regular updates from the owners (Jason) and they've mentioned that their efficiency is much higher than expected and their first run of Cane & Ebel is actually an Imperial Cane & Ebel. One other batch turned out that way also.

PS - I'd be interested in going to.
