This is our first ever blog post on our new web site! We'll be adding more information as things progress. Today I want to tell you something extra about how we got here.

 

After countless hours of planning, paper pushing, googling, drilling and assembling, our brewery took it's shape earlier this fall. Looking back on it, things have gone relatively smooth. We went a bit over budget due to the small delays in the bureaucracy needed for the alcohol production permit. But in the end our crazy goal to build a brewery with 10% of the “normal cost” held pretty well. How we did it was simple, use out of-the-box thinking, mass-produced standard parts, and do all the work ourselves. Being long time DIY-"MacGyvers" helped with the building and living as students helped with the “cheap, but gets the job done” oriented thinking. Building this cheap would not have been possible without the EU because it allowed easy duty-free purchasing from the promised land of stainless steel, Germany.  


Stay tuned on the blog for more updates about our first beer and launch party!
