I have been delaying the next entry so that it could be an announcement of our official and actual grand opening. I can't wait any longer and have to share how close we are to opening. The outside of the building is basically done and we are moving rapidly along at having the inside finished. As soon as we have climate control to protect your ingredients, we will moving in and place new orders for malt. We are so appreciative of all of our customers that have patiently waited for us to open. We think it will be worth the wait.
It will be a while before we host food related events, but we are excited that we have the basic infrastructure that will allow us to have an inspected kitchen. We envision great possibilities with being able to host paired beer dinners, as well as various educational opportunities and workshops.
We are focusing now on getting the shop finished so we can begin to serve our customers. We are so excited to set up the shop, complete with our malt crushing area, and all of the bulk malts we carry. Customers will be able to come in with a recipe (or and idea) and make up their grain bill, including milling if necessary. With the new space we will expand the range of malts we stock (even though it is extensive now. We will also continue to stock a large variety of commercial hops, as well as our own estate hops.
So, please forgive our delay and join us in the hopeful excitement of our opening in the VERY near future.
