Construction Update 2

It's been almost a month since the last update. In that short time span  we’ve gone from an unfinished space with just a floor to something that is starting to resemble a brewery.

We’ve been able to put up all our internal walls, and fill them with insulation. Industrial regulations sure are thorough, and we had to use extra thick insulation on the walls to make sure the space will stay toasty. We think that while the walls make the space seem a bit smaller, it really does help make the rooms more distinct.

Insulation is in. It'll stay in place once the drywall gets put up over it.

Our cold boxes are studded out and waiting for finishing work and the tanks to show up. We made sure there’s a large enough space to move between them, and we’ll be doing all our brewing in the back by the window to the tasting room.

All our water and gas lines are run. Don’t they look pretty.

 

The ceilings are clear coated - to make sure the rust stays put. We think they look kind of cool this way. Lights and HVAC units are all hung too. We’ve got 2 super quiet HVAC units in the tasting room. You’ll never even know they’re on.

While we’ve come a long way, we still have a lot to do to make it over the finish line. We’re planning on closing up all the walls this week, and moving on to the finishing work. This is where we really need your help. We’ve got a 20 foot bar in the plans that we need the funds to be able to construct. Help us out by funding our Kickstarter.
