I've had the pleasure of watching my boyfriend and his buddy plan out, and make their dreams of opening a brewery come true. *In this thread I'll document the process as best I can About a year ago 2 friends took the "what if" talk about opening a brewery to the next level. For the next few months they looked at several properties in the area. Last July they signed a 2 year lease in a prime area of our town. Over the summer we started the renovate the space, which was ironicly, a wine bar. (Photos to come) I post this today because, the equipment finally arrived today! It took some months, on a legit slow boat from China, but the pallets are sitting in a (friend's) warehouse and we will be picking them up in the morning. Here we have a boil kettle, mash ton, and a hot liquor tank and assessories.. For a 3 barrel system. The excitement tonight is undescribable. We are also waiting for the federal paperwork to be approved. As soon as the feds give the thumbs up they can start brewing and aging, and apply for state license to sell. Still a long way to go.
