Kegerator is looking good Joe! Are you running a fan up the tower to keep the lines cool?

Been there a couple times, as I work in the building right at the Chesterbrook Blvd exit (heading north on 202). It's ok, but nothing to write home about.

Been there a few times. Place is nice. Never to busy. Food is good.

Here is my new bar. Just hooking the lines up. 25 ft run to a kreezer in the basement.

not that i frequent the new one all that often, but I haven't seen a saison at this one yet. That may be reserved for the original location. ??

Ah sorry, I missed that he specified the Berwyn location. I've never been to that one so you might be right, I've only been to the original.

I think i'm going to be brewing on friday, and most likely sometime over the weekend if anyone is interested in stopping by. have alot of beers to get brewed in short order, and a must for the weekend is a saison. Outside of that, I need to brew:

Esibock, dopplebock, schwarzbier, Hose pale, Hopslam Clone, Barleywine.

Hurray! I brewed a beer today. First time since October and the first time on my single tier. Went relatively well considering I was using an untested and poorly planned out rig. There's definitely a learning curve with those pumps and priming....

Working on a rig myself, I think I'll do a couple run throughs with water first.


.......Who am I kidding, I'll be grinding grain the day it's done

Congrats guys! I ended up not brewing at all this weekend. Too damn windy for my liking. Hoping it gets warmer out this coming weekend... I have a saison to brew for a friends wedding!
