Video: Canning Process

Last night we participated in COSI After Dark, our neighbor’s monthly adults-only museum hangout. This months theme was Brewing and Distillation, and the participants each trotted out a demo on some aspect of the brewing or distilling process. Since the ‘I’ in COSI stands for Industry, we decided to tackle to the process of canning beer. We put together the video above to illustrate how the Stiff-Arm IPA gets in that shiny red can.

The Brewhouse Is Here!

brewhouse

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.

The Brewhouse is Ready and Waiting!

Earlier this week we got a nice note from W.M. Sprinkman letting us know that our 20bbl brewhouse was complete, and ready to roll. A lot of hardworking Milwaukee folks leant their hands in building the system, and they were nice enough to pose for the “family photo” you see above. We can’t wait to see it sitting atop our gorgeous new floors.
