Good news, everyone!
In the wake of our successful Kickstarter and a number of other small victories, we’ve decided to expand our plans a bit. Our issue, however, is that the ceilings in our current space at 800 Braddock Ave. are much too low to house a larger brewing system.
Fortunately, we’ve already found a building just down the street that is a much better fit: the old Harco Electric building, located at 514 Braddock Ave. With a spacious brewing area, a much better layout for a taproom, and more convenient parking, the Harco building is an big upgrade on a number of levels. Although our time spent at 800 Braddock Ave. was an excellent learning experience and provided a space for us to make early progress, we can’t say we’ll miss having house centipedes the size of hamsters skittering around everywhere.
We will be moving into our new space and beginning our buildout over the next few months. If everything magically falls into place and goes according to our ridiculously optimistic timeline, we should be rolling our first kegs out the door by July. Between now and then, we’ll be seeking more financing, renovating our space, getting our licensing, and installing equipment.
We’ll do some architectural drawings of our projected space over the next few weeks. For now, here’s a few pictures of the Harco building as it currently stands. We hope you all enjoy renovation photos, because we’re about to have a hell of a lot more of them.
