The Big Pour

Yes!  Hell yes!  Today we poured the concrete for our brewhouse floor and covered up the trenches and new sewer lines.  I can’t tell you how good it feels to get this step out of the way.  In fact, it feels somehow symbolic…like we’re cementing this brewery into reality.

I wish I had more pictures of the process to share, but I was doing a lot of running around today, and could only snap a few shots as I was running in and out.  One other thing I should mention is that we also passed our rough water and gas-line inspections today, so we will be able to install our cold-room in front of those pipes on Monday, as scheduled.  One more thing to celebrate!

Pouring

Here’s our hard working crew, getting the job done.

Waiting for Truck

And here’s a shot of our almost-poured brewhouse floor, as we wait for the next truck to hook up to the pump.

And a bit later, after part of the form was removed from our curb.

Here’s a look at the final product as the guys remove the forms from the trench drain.

And lastly, here’s a nice shot of the tasting bar location.  Ahhh…the sounds of sweet, sweet progress.  I will definitely drink to that!  Who’s with me?
