Our final construction update and a few favorite memories from Suite AF, as we say goodbye to our original location when we close the doors today.
Huston, we have a brewery! The brewhouse and tanks were delivered this week, and things are really starting to look like a real brewery over here.
With the opening of the brewery in our new location, we're also adjusitng our hours to make it more convenient for everyone.
Mother Nature tried to slow us down with a big snow storm, but our crews have been working hard to keep us on schedule. Floors are finished, the beer garden is taking shape, the new ceiling grid is in place, and we have a big shiny new sign!
Things are happening! Sometimes, I forget how much has happened since we last posted photos because we're spending so much time in the new space that each change seems so small and insignificant. Then, when I look back at where we were just a few weeks ago, I realize how quickly it is all coming together.
It's been a couple of weeks since our last construction update and it simultaneously feels like a whole lot has been happening very quickly and not very much is happening and it's moving very slowly. Here's a quick post with some photos of what's been going on with the new space.
As we were beginning to put together the plans for our forthcoming expansion, we realized that it was also time to refresh of our brand. We loved our original logo and brand standards, but we felt that with the addition of an on-site brewery, we needed to accentuate that change in a visual way.
Our second update on the progress of construction of our new brewery, craft beer store, neighborhood bar, and beer garden. Framing, electric, plumbing, HVAC, and refrigeration work is all underway!
Some of you may be wondering what the heck I've been up to over the last few months because, well, I was supposed to be brewing beer for you at our new brewery...and that brewery is still packed up in a warehouse in Raleigh at the moment.
So, I'll give you a little behind-the-scenes tour of what an unemployed brewer does in the months leading up to a brewery opening.
Here are five great gifts for the craft beer drinkers on your holiday list. All gifts are currently available for purcahse in-store at The Glass Jug Beer Lab in Durham, NC.
