Here’s a few pictures of what we’ve been up to lately.
This first one was taken standing in the parking lot at the front of our building, just after we moved in.
And this one is inside the warehouse space, looking back at what will become our offices and tap-room. It seems so big & empty…kind of like a blank slate…
We were very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time when we bought the majority of our brewing equipment. Alesmith Brewing Company, in San Diego, was upgrading their brewing system to a bigger size, and we were able to buy their old brewhouse from them. Most of their brewhouse was built from converted dairy tanks and vessels, so you may notice that these don’t look like your typical brewery tanks.
This picture was taken just outside of Alesmith after we put the first load of tanks onto the truck. The tank in front is one of our open, primary-fermenters, and the others are secondary fermenting tanks. I didn’t manage to get any pictures of us in the act of loading, since we pretty much had our hands full getting them safely onto the truck.
This was taken just after we finished unloading the first load of tanks into our brewery. It’s kind of hard to see, but we’re celebrating with a couple pints of Alesmith IPA.
