Oh, and if I haven't mentioned it before... the walk-in cooler is no longer. The water level was above the door. We used a crowbar to open it up on Saturday to get the kegs out...

Oh, man.... I mean, it's one thing to lose the stuff. You've out a lot of money for the stuff that wasn't insured, but to lose the cooler that you spent so much time and effort on? That really, really sucks.

That sucks John. Especially about the uninsured stuff.

At least when you rebuild you can add the walkin cooler and brew room to the blueprints.

Parker.. good luck man, let us know how you faired.

When I was a kid we lived along a creek, that in the summer barely flowed. In the spring it could raise 20 feet. We were about the only house that didn't flood. Pretty dam scary though.

Now where I live I only have to contend with pine beattle killed trees and forest fires. We were evacuated once 2 years ago. Never fun.

All the best..

That is terrible news. I'm so sorry to hear of all that you lost. I give you a tremendous amount of credit as it sounds as if you are taking this in great stride.

I guess I shouldn't expect any less from a fellow homebrewer.

olllllo, I think I speak for most of HBT when I say that I have no idea what the hell you're talking about 1/3 of the time.

Oh my gosh, that is really crappy , i have seen first hand the devestation a flood can do,its heart breaking to slowly see your stuff drownd.
my thought and prayers go out to you and your family.
I hope you can get back to normal just as soon as possable.

on a side note your brewery name has total street cred now and a cruel twist of irony to it.
