The Brewhouse Is Here!

It was a HUGE day on Tuesday here at Land-Grant HQ, as our Sprinkman brewhouse and ABT cellar were delivered and shimmied into their places. There were some tight squeezes to get everything where it needed to be, but after two long days everything is in its right place. In a few weeks —if all goes well— we should have all the utilities hooked up to the system, and we can get to brewing.

I’ve posted some choice photos here, and you can view a full gallery of the day over on our facebook page.

Video : Construction 001

Our latest documentary time-lapse video gives you glimpse into all the hard work that goes into a brewery floor. Digging trenches for drains, laying drainage pipes, and finally pouring a brand new concrete slab over the whole thing. The new floors are something we’ve been looking forward to since we signed the lease, and they truly transform the space.

This certainly won’t be our last construction video, so stay tuned for more in the coming weeks. Cheers!

152nd Anniversary of the Land-Grant Act

152nd Anniversary of the Morrill Land-Grant Act of 1862

With the World Cup, Red White and Boom, and Independence Day, you probably don’t need another reason to celebrate this week. The intrepid revelers, however, can raise a glass to the 152nd Anniversary of the Morrill Land-Grant Act, signed into law by President Lincoln on this day in 1862! Cheers!
