I bought the insurance which basically allows me to walk away should anything happen.Same here, although I never get it when I rent in the US but it sounded like a good plan.

Never been to Ireland, but from my driving experiences in England, when a little grey haired granny blasts by you in the roundabout, it is time to get with the program!
If it is one with 7 roads coming in and you can't see the one you want, just keep going around until you know your exit. My record was 2.5 times around.
When the roads get really narrow, get over as far as you can. Let the twigs hit the mirror. Slow down. The locals I'll blast by like nothing happened. They have been doing that since their early diving years. The only angst is when you meet a beer truck on the narrow roads. You always say to yourself, when does the beer truck come through here?
If you end up in Dingle, by all means go check out the Dingle Brewing Company - http://dinglebrewingcompany.com/We stayed at the Benner's and Dingle Brewing was less than 1/2 mile away. Unfortunately, I didn't find out about it until we left.
They make a fantastic lager, and the staff is amazingly friendly (like pretty much everyone else we ran into in Ireland!)
But he counts it like a doctor where an hour is only 50 minutes.$12 and maybe benefits is about as good as it gets for an entry-level brewing job, *and* you get to work with Denny?!Most would pay $12 an hour to brew with Denny
As the owner of a brewery I am not allowed to put my hands on my own jockey box to serve beer to myself or anyone during festivals. Stupid.
Can you get them recertified for another 5 years? I used to swap my tanks at Maine Oxy in Hooksett, but now I just bring them to Granite State Gas in Derry and get them filled. Maybe one of these places will recertify the tanks so you can use them for another 5 years.
I haven't yet experienced the expired tank situation so I'm not sure if they do recertifications or not.
Looks like Airgas in Concord is going to hook me up!
Hey since you're kind of local, are you aware of anywhere local (say within 75 miles) that has reasonable prices on bulk base malts?
I used to get all my base malts directly from Valley Malt, but after coming back from a brewing layoff I'm disappointed to find out they won't sell to me direct anymore. Everywhere seems to by $65 and up per sack when I see people in other parts of the country getting sacks for $35 to $45.
Does the original Portland even have enough convention hotel rooms for 5,000 people?
The crowd begins chanting "Portland, Portland..."Can only hope someday this will be the chant for Portland, ME. Breweries all over Maine, NH, MA, even VT is doable. I just don't know if we have the homebrew club organization to get it done.
Cool! She said in 2016 they will be using the new guidelines but not all of the styles. Let the worrying begin! Who's beer will be left out? How many entries will we get? Ooooh the stress of it all. ;-)
Hey Bill I live about 10 minutes from your location. Just noticed your "opening soon" signs a couple of months ago.
I figure it would at least be worker's comp insurance since she was injured on the job.Depends on the type of insurance. Most breweries are going to be required to have liability insurance for their premise and liquor licensing, but that usually covers the general public visiting the brewery. I don't think current law requires them to have health insurance for employees until they reach a certain number of employees (or technically costs them 'fees' if they don't provide insurance).Is it a reminder to not go to work for a brewery that doesn't have insurance?
Is that a possibility? I don't and never will own a business so I just don't know.
