More Painting, More Finishes

I know, I know…my posts are few and far between these days.  I do apologize for that, but what can I say?  This whole business of building a brewery is the sort of hard work that keeps you busy all day, every day, until it is done.

But we’re getting so close now…

Here’s a few pictures of what we’ve been up to.  Hopefully we’ll be able to invite everyone over very soon to see it for themselves.

Here's a look at the unfinished bar. This should be finished with a front and top by the end of next week.

And the men's restroom, with no tile yet...but indoor plumbing that works!  Very exciting indeed!

Here's a nice look at the brewhouse, with most of the tanks finally in their permanent locations. Oh, and also floors that have already been sealed.

Getting our bottling tank upright was a little bit precarious...

...But we managed it. Woohoo! (anyone remember those Toyota commercials from the 80's?)

Details and Painting

Now that all of our walls are up and most of the messy work is done, we’re finally able to install some of the fixtures and finishes (windows, doors, trim, etc.).  Also we’ve been able to spend a good deal of time putting primer and paint on the walls…but there’s still lots more to do.  Here’s a few pics of the latest progress…
