Thanks man, but it's something I'd love to get rid of. I drink a lot more beer now than I used to. It's hard not to want to knock back three or ofur after a long day brewing.

Why make something I'm not going to use?  ;)

good articles, great press!

I like the barrel's name.

Hey Keith,
That video clip says you're a PA transplant...just curious on your thoughts on how your beer would fare in the PA market as there is a pretty strong craft brew in that state....I live in OK now, but am originally from NEPA myself and I'm wondering if a start-up brewery would fare better in a state w/a small core of craft brewers, like OK, or a large core of craft brewers like PA or NY.

Well, that's a good question. Craft beer is just now catching on down here. we are riding on the crest of a wave - pretty exciting, actually. The competition is slim and the excitement about craft beer is growing. This would be much more difficult to pull off in PA simply because of the competition and extremely narrow room for error. I'm pretty happy with the beer we are producing now but when we first started out there were problems that were probably more forgiving in a place that has ever had access to great craft beer as opposed to a place who is accustomed to it. Our major problem opening was dialing in carbonation and that was a somewhat forgivable offense here but might now have been elsewhere.

Might even depend on the location w/in a state....in my hometown of Wilkes-Barre, PA, which is not a craft brew destination as opposed to other places in the state, there is a nanobrewery that has been going strong for a couple years now by delivering to local bars http://www.breakerbrewingcompany.com/.  Here in Oklahoma, craft brew has been gaining momentum over the last 3 years....makes me wonder if it's best to start a brewery "on the crest of the wave", or start up once others are established so you can learn from their mistakes...I guess it depends on your approach.
