How do you climb a flagpole? One step at a time.
Well we promised to keep you updated every step of the way, so that's what we intend to do. Let's start with the bad news. The number one question we get asked every day (or more like 20 times per day) is "When are you going to open?" It's a great question! The bad news is, we still can't give you a firm date.
Now to the good news.
As of the writing of this blog post, we now have our State Permit! Yes! We are very excited about taking this step in the process. It's a big one!
What we need to do now is to register each of the beers we want to sell with the State of Ohio. We are not able to sell any of the beers until we have them registered. So that's the next (and most likely final) step. We were unable to register the beers until we have our permit, so that will happen very quickly! Jason Given has all of our paperwork for this process prepped and ready to rock. So first thing next week we will get that process started. "Big ups" to Jason for his hard work on this legal process and having us ready to rock.
So while we are not ready to open today...we are making progress "slow but sure!"
In addition, progress on the building keeps humming along. Pat Clark has been hard at work coordinating (and doing) all of this behind the scenes stuff. This is the dirty and thankless work that (when done right) no one will notice. There has been a lot of (literally) blood, sweat and tears that have gone into this, so it's worth a public thank you.
The Tap Room is coming together and we are excited to show you! The bar is nearly complete, the furniture is close to being ready and the finishing touches of decorations are falling into place. We can't wait to invite you in to share a cold pint.
That's the update for now. Now we need to get back to work. We have other flag poles to climb!
