Sorry for the lack of blog updates, but it hasn't been for a lack of work! Between running around to festivals and trying to get the brewery open, it has been crazy. I realize I might sound a little whiny complaining about having to be at beer festivals, so feel free to give me a little smack if you see me. Just give me fair warning, I don't want to go out like Houdini.
Last week we went to Charleston, South Carolina. First off, if you've never been there, make plans. Amazing food, culture and people. The fest we attended, Brewvival, was amazing. A great beer crowd that really knew there stuff. Morgan, our brewing apprentice, was often heard yelling "Why are people so nice here!!" Needless to say, if we get the invite, we are going back next year.
Next on the tour are two trips to Tampa. This weekend is the Florida Brewer's Guild Beerfest. Really a great showing of most of the breweries and brewpubs in Florida. The following week we hit CCB for their Hunahpu's day. We won't be pouring, but CCB will be serving a few our beers. This is something I look forward to all year. Great music, food, beer and the release of one my all time favorite imperial stouts, Hunahpu's. I'm in!
Below is a recent blog post from someone who had a chance to try us at Brewvival. Quite flattering!
