Wow Keith. This is awesome. I have been out of touch with the brewing world lately so I am just now hearing about your brewery. Congrats again man.

Brewery is just outside of downtown Huntsville which is ~20 minutes from the airport. I would recommend anyone who is really interested in coming by to wait until we are up and running a few months. We are starting out with only two beers (a Belgian White and an IPA) to go on draft but plan to ramp that up to 4 within 6 months and by then I plan to have all sorts of "projects" going on as well.

Good luck Major!  My dad lives in Decatur, so I'll have to come by for a "brewery tour" next time I'm visiting. The boys from Olde Towne showed me around their new facilty earlier this summer. I hope to find some of your Kolsch on tap in AL someday.  8)

I do want to do a kolsch and we most certainly will - I think it will be a big seller especially considering the climate here. But we are not set up for brewing one yet. Need a few extra bright tanks and a decent RO system. I certainly hope you will stop by when you visit though!

At this point we are in a huge rush trying to get things in order. The ABC has been a PITA and they are not very lenient. But we could have everything in place and be brewing within 2 weeks. Or, it may be 6 weeks. Hard to say at this point.

Here's a peak at our final logo. This one is the plan for the tap handle. At some point we would like to go real wood.

That's a VERY classy design!  A carved wood handle would be very cool.

Keith, the medals that they send out for the New England Homebrew Competition are engraved wood. Pretty sure one of the guys in Brew Free or Die (the ORIGINAL CLUB not the micro-brewery founded years later) have a machine that does it.

I'll get a pic posted in the next few days to show you.

They are really nice work and you might want to use something like this for your tap handles, if I talk to the right guy it might come pretty cheap too.

Love that label, not as hard on the eyes as some of the other ones yet its still an attention gettah
