Well, this is it. It's on the calendar and I'm flying my brother-in-law architect/carpenter in for his help. We should have it under roof by the end of the weekend. Yuri is swinging by to help as are a few other friends. I'm picking up a keg of NxNW Pale Ale just in case they go through 10 gallons of Haus Ale.

Ground Preparation starts April 24th.



I'll post progress pics here.

If my Raleigh trip falls through and you need someone to swing a hammer, I can be there FRI night.

Looks like you have enough room for me to pitch a tent.

Hey Ed,
Any plans you can post up? How big of a hut are we talking here?
Good luck with the build.

It's going to be 12'x20' minimum with a gabled roof. Brewery in the back that can brew rain or shine, day or night. Up front is the Bierstube with 4 faucets coming from the cold room. Bee Cave Brewery becomes reality, just at an amature level.
