"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Benjamin Franklin
We think Ben Franklin was onto something! Sure, he was one of the great thinkers of our country's history. Sure, he was a prolific inventor and leader. But this quote on beer...he got that right! :)
Open Date: Let's start with the million dollar question. The answer is, "We don't know." We are not sure on our open date yet, but we promise to keep you in the loop. As might know, we have our federal license and have applied to the state. Now we wait. It's not a complaint, we have a lot of work to do to be ready, and we are hard at it.
However, when we do get the nod, we might want your help. When we get our approval, we hope to have a few "soft" opening events to make sure we are ready for the torrents of crowds. And let's face it, we would like to do those events with some friendly faces. So we are going to reach out to those that are signed up on our VIP list to start. If you want to be on the invite list, please just head over here and sign up.
Tap Room Update: Wow! Things have surely changed a lot here in the last few weeks! At this point, we have our bar in place and the kegerator is (nearly) ready. We have our stand up tables and our stools have arrived. We even have our custom tables in place. We want to give a huge shout out to McWane Ductile Iron Pipe in Coshocton for providing the legs of the tables. Very cool...and SUPER solid!
I am going to make an effort to start posting more pictures to Facebook. So if you want to stay up on progress, you might want to head over there and like our page.
Featured on Beer Blog: If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know we are working to open here in Coshocton. But imagine our fantastic surprise when we heard we were featured on the Beer Blog in the Akron Beacon Journal. The blog post was about all of the new breweries opening (which is awesome) but our logo managed to be at the top! What a wonderful surprise! Thanks so much to Rick Armon for the shout out!
More updates will keep coming. But thanks so much for taking and interest and joining us for this ride! We sincerely appreciate everyone's interest!
