Looks like my brewing days are going to be suspended for a while. My wife called me at work around 3:00 yesterday. My Garage, Brewery, Workshop burn't to the ground yesterday. My neighbor put some ashes from a burn pit behind his barn in the field. The ashes still had some hot coals that started his barn on fire. With that strong wind out of the South yesterday it quickly spread to my garage which was only about 50 ft from his barn. It burn't to the ground, but it could have been much worse. The wind carried some hot ashes up to my house and started a bush on fire which started the vinyl siding on my house bruning. I thank the lord that the local fire cheif from Mt. Wolf saw it and put the fire out on my house. I was ten minutes away from losing my House! The local fire departments saved my house and those of my neighbors. You can see whats left of my garage on Fox 43 News out of York. Need less to say my brewing is going to be out of comission for a while. My brew system, ingredients, lager freezer, beer fridge was all out there. Not to mention all my wood working equipment.

Bottom line is I still have my house and no body was hurt! I'll be doing some serious fund raising for my local fire company, those guys were great!

Look for my brewery to rise again out of the ashes, the Pheonix brewery is what its new name is going to be.

First off sorry to hear about your loss, but good to hear that you still have a house. Is your neighbors insurance going to be repalcing at least your woodworking equipment and 2 freezers?

Nice new Brewery name.

Yeah man, sorry to hear about the news. Glad that everyone is safe and the house came out relatively unharmed.

You should make your first brew a smoked porter.

Mike,

I am terribly sorry to hear about the fire. Saw it on CBS 21 last night after reading your postings here. If there's any way that I can help, do let me know.

Jason

So is the neighbor paying for it, or will you have to dip into your HO's insurance?

That's a hard way to come up with a great brewery name. Good luck with the rebuild and the smoked beer (eventually).
