Window framing, insulation and house wrap has begun on the front face of the building.

The loading-dock pad was poured at the back of the building. We can’t wait for beer to be flowing out of here for your consumption!

You can see the exterior silo pad being poured by DG Masonry. This concrete pad will support two 60,000 pound silos, full of some of the worlds finest malting barley.

Installation of the siding began once the silo pads were poured. The cladding for the entire building is rough cut Hemlock board and batten siding from Oran Milling, right down the road from us. It came out looking beautiful with a few coats of natural sealer.

On a particularly frosty morning, the trench for electric and gas service was dug out and utility installation began.

We took advantage of some of the nice weather and installed hop poles for what will be 2 acres of hops.

Construction has really been cranking as we try to beat the snow here, and we hope to see some brewing tanks moved in here shortly!
