They say that time flies when you are having fun, and that must be true because; guess what guys, it’s June. More unbelievably it is almost the end of June. Which means it is time that we update you on our progress this month.
For all the time flying and fun being had, it has been a BUSY month for Trek! Over at the brewery we’re finally making forward progress. Demo is happening! We’re ripping out ceilings! We’re destroying closets! We’re moving out kitchen equipment. We’re carefully lining up chairs and tables so that we don’t destroy them. It is a process, but damn it, it feels AMAZING to actually do something.
We’ve ordered some more equipment – our glycol chiller is all set, we’ve got fermenters and brite tank figured out for our pilot system. We’ve made decisions on merchandise and glassware. We’re in the process of making decisions about a few billion other tiny things – paint colors, wall murals, taster trays, point of sale systems… the list goes on and on and on for about a million miles, but we are absolutely having a blast (other than deciding on the POS system which is making my head hurt).
We’ve been test brewing on our pilot system. John just brewed a Saison, and he’s kegging it while I write this post. We’ve got Pale Ale and Vanilla Stout on tap right now – and, I know I’m biased, but they are pretty darn delicious.
The biggest thing that has been happening all month long is our Indiegogo Campaign. We know we’ve talked about it a lot. You guys have been awesome. We’ve still got just over a week left, and we’re ⅔ of the way to our goal. We are so thankful to all of you that have supported the campaign so far. If you are already a backer, now is the time to convince all your friends they want to get in on all the awesomeness by talking about the campaign loudly while in public and sharing the link on social media. You could also explore some more of our perks and grab some great deals on parties or beer!
If you aren’t a backer – now is the time to become one. We’ve got a perk for everyone, at every level from $3.00 all the way up to $1k. Backing the campaign gets you amazing Trek Brewing Company swag: stickers, exclusive tees, hats, glassware, growlers, tokens for beer fills, parties, bragging rights… you name it, we’ve got a perk for that. The money raised from the campaign is going to make the patio at Trek a great place to gather and enjoy the outdoors with a great beer and great people.
We’re thankful for each of you, and we’re psyched to be sharing this journey with you. Cheers to you, friends.
