Well friends, another month is at it’s close. We’re nearing the end of August already, and it’s been the busiest month yet at the brewery.
John is now officially full time at Trek, which has been amazing, and is allowing us to get a lot more done. We’ve managed to get almost all of the Indiegogo orders shipped – still waiting on a few specific items to complete that task! We hope you love your merch as much as we do, and please send us pics of you in it or enjoying it! You can use the hashtag #trekbrewing or tag us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. We love to see you guys enjoying your gear! We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it a few thousand more times – we are so thankful for all of your support during that campaign. It was intense, but it was truly awesome.
Outside of the physical brewery we’ve continued to make a few billion decisions regarding the future of Trek. We’ve settled on a new paint color for the outside building, ordered our standard merchandise, come really close to actually deciding on a point of sale system, and made several interior design and/or interior function decisions.
We’ve also been brewing some more test batches for Trek. Within the past couple of weeks we’ve brewed both a New England style IPA and a cream ale. Both are fermenting right now, and we’re anxious to see how they turn out.
Construction has begun over at the building! We’ve had crews working every day over at the site. They’ve been prepping the floors for a new brewery surface – a super-tough and coated concrete mixture that can withstand caustic substances and high temperatures. There has also been a crew building a new firewall between the new brewery area and the kitchen area. Today they started cutting out the block from the back to make our loading door. We can’t begin to tell you guys how cool it is to get to see these things starting to really happen!
Within the next couple of weeks we’ll have lots more big changes coming to the brewery. The building will be painted, our road sign will be installed, and patio and loading doors will be cut and installed. They’ll begin work on plumbing and HVAC, and we’ll be getting those floors in too!
Until then friends,
